Shuffle Online is an online magazine covering entertainment and lifestyle news. We’re based in Austin, TX and like to keep things weird by bringing you the latest film reviews, concert recaps and exclusive interviews with filmmakers, artists and musicians! We’re a small team made up of mostly 80s and 90s kids, so we like to keep it retro and nostalgic and eat too many tacos. So take a look around and get Shuffling!

Rebecca Daniel | Film Contributor
Rebecca Daniel is a freelance journalist from Atlanta, Georgia. She was introduced to “The Sound of Music” at age two which led to her love of film and all things musical. You can often find her writing a review about the latest movie she’s seen in theaters or counting down the days until she watches the next one. Rebecca recently made a short film called “Movie: Impassable.” She just got her Independent Producing Certificate with UCLA Extension and hopes to make more movies in the near future! She is inspired by directors like David Fincher, Sofia Coppola, and Damien Chazelle.
