Christopher Wood focused his education at University of Washington Tacoma on film production and criticism, and since graduation has produced web content for dozens of local businesses, assisted on feature film sets, and previously wrote for such publications as the Tacoma-based The Weekly Volcano. In his spare time he enjoys posting reviews on his Facebook page and waiting each month to engage in MovieCat Trivia Night at Seattle's Central Cinema.

Cinema Dissection affords film lovers an exciting opportunity to dig deeper into the films that they love. Inspired by Roger Ebert's annual Cinema Interruptus in Boulder, CO, attendees will participate with a facilitator in a six-hour scene-by-scene, and sometimes shot-by-shot, deconstruction of the featured film. While the facilitator will certainly share their thoughts, anyone in the audience may call out "Stop" and either ask a question of the group or make an observation around a certain shot or moment in the film.
