If I had a time machine and was able to go back in time, I’d have a lot of advice for a young Neil Miller. Things like “lay off the fatty foods, fatty,” “move to Austin sooner” and “credit cards are bad” would be at the top of my list. Nowhere in there, however, would you find any changes to the people who have been brought on over the years to write for Film School Rejects. I wouldn’t change those for anything. It would be nice to be a little thinner, though. I tell you that story to tell you this one. The article you’re reading will count as the 15,000th published article in the 5+ year history of Film School Rejects. It’s a very cool milestone that a young Neil Miller wouldn’t dare believe could ever happen. And we’re here because of the countless people who have worked hard to bring us to this point. And just as we did earlier this year when the site had its 5 year anniversary, it’s time to celebrate. To do so we’ve taken a look back at the first articles (and words) written by some of our most prolific and longest running contributors. To celebrate where we’ve come to, we must first take a look back at where it all started.
