The movie project is going so good that not only I watch them, I read other’s critics, I write down my notes etc. It is not only watching the movies, it is, for me, a learning platform by discovering and understanding the best examples. In short, learning by examples.
I have always been a theoretical learner, all these graduations in different areas of study, researching and attending classes, participating in discussions, non-conforming the lecturers included.
When I consume everything theoretical, I try to generate my own theories by controlled experimenting, observation, data collection etc. not only in my academic life but also in my private life when trying new recipes, developing self-healing techniques, communicating with people with different backgrounds. I found my own ways to survive and develop including my own ethical rules for life or an 35 project which will last for a year.
The only thing I did not do was to watch others and learn from them as Tarantino had done before he became a director. I don’t know if I am talented or not in this. I am not very sure of myself like I am sure of my sketches. I haven’t had any training on art but it just comes to me naturally. I skecth since I could hold a crayon. I did not even got very deep in theory in art. I took it as a gift and try not to fog it by too many theories. I just want it to be raw.
But, in terms of movies, directing and scriptwriting, I need some theory. I want to learn from the bests. Do I have to go to a film school? Well, maybe I will do that too, but do I have to? Certainly not. So, I will be announcing now a new project with 3 steps.
1. Learn how to wrtie a movie script, how to make a movie, how to produce it and how to act by reading books & online material, watching the best movies and the best actors/actresses.
2. Write an original script.
3. Produce it including developing the team, production design, storyboard, art direction, casting, filming, editing, distribution etc.
It does not have to be perfect, it just has to be my own.
As I watch, I become more and more keen to write and create a visionary voice. Not only the words of my mind but also the voice of my eyes want to talk and contribute my missions.
The third goal may not be finished within this year, but I will definitely start doing it.
Oh, by the way, there are only 35 movies left from the IMDb top 250 watchlist 🙂
I am going real good 🙂
