Hey there :)

Thanks for stumbling onto my blog! My name is Lorelle Shorten. I'm a writer and video editor from Ireland. Author of children's kindle ebook, "Bubbles and Razi's Days of Fun".

I created The Reel Life of Real Life, because I absolutely love films! I love watching them and I love knowing the process and stories behind the making of them. So I figured I'd share my thoughts, musings, discoveries on this blog, and hopefully discover other people who love films just as much!

I hope you enjoy my posts and find a few of them interesting! If there is a particular film that springs to mind that you recommend please don't hesitate in commenting below! Or if you'd rather not comment, feel free to get in contact with me through:
