“Why We Love Film; An Examination of Great Cinema”
SUMMARY OF THE PODCAST:
We’re film guys. That’s our first territory and passion. We thought that we might start talking about some of our favourites and break down their structure, their message, and how they relate. We discover some things about these gems that we weren’t even aware of and perhaps you weren’t either. It’s a film love fest!
POINT #1: “FIGHT CLUB; ALMOST FAMOUS; WHIPLASH”
-A handful of our personal favourites, do not disappoint as subjects for discussion and examination. We discover ideas and themes we never realized ourselves.
POINT #2: “THE MARRIAGE OF STRUCTURE AND THEME”
-By following the guideposts of classic story structure we can reveal theme and discover the deeper meanings being communicated through story.
POINT #3: “GO FOR BIG CONCEPTS”
-Look at any of the great films and see how they all communicate some fantastic messages that go beyond the technical jargon of storytelling!
