Noah R. Taylor

Associate Editor
Noah knows film. In addition to Dork Shelf, he has contributed to sites such as Indiewire and Art of the Title. His love of the medium always puts him on the side of the filmmaker when writing his reviews, so they have to go out out their way to get bad one. That being said, Noah’s opinion, while still just an opinion, is an educated one. From working in a video store, to studying film at Concordia University, acting in indie films, writing screenplays, to shooting and editing EPK material, he is a true cinephile who appreciates that when it comes to movies, no one will ever know all there is to know or see all there is to see.

Daniel Grant

Podcasts Manager
Daniel is a Toronto-based film and podcast lover. When he’s not going to the movies multiple times a week or listening to any and every comedy/entertainment news podcast, he actually finds time to host two of his own film-based podcasts. Daniel is also the author of the self-published novel Better Than Me.
