IMDb 250 project is now officially completed! Read more
Movies, like books, are about storytelling. They use less words so it is not very easy when compared to books. Any subject, if told really good, can become a masterpiece.
That’s what I learned the best from the bests among IMDb Top 250. I will definitely use this in my future short films for my Filmmaking project.
This one is too close to an achievement if you call watching movies an achievement 🙂 *
Here is what I’ve been so far: Alex’s scores on IMDB 250
I do as I am sick at home, it is much better than pitying myself and doing nothing 🙂 Here are what I learned through this journey:
It’s coming to an end soon 🙂
The initial list on Dec 24th 2014 (139 movies left) as I have watched the rest earlier than the project.
I first set my goal as “throughout the year” but I changed it until the end of January 2015 as I happened to be super motivated and fast about it. Here is the updated project summary on Jan 4th, 2015:
This one makes me very excited!
After watching all those movies from my watchlist of IMDb top 250, I got more and more amazed with filmmaking. I decided to make one myself. As a new project, I will make an appx 15 minutes long short film. To do that I will:
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, free courses, watching the best movies ever.
2. Write an original script.
3. Produce it including developing the team, production design, storyboard, art direction, casting, filming, editing, distribution etc.
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.
After watching all those movies I realized that Monty Python’s Holy Grail and Life of Brian are the best ones to watch if you want some color in your life. If your life is as miserable as mine, you will not regret as you watch them. Bloody hillariously brilliant 🙂
Monty Python made my day in each and every scene I could not stop laughing or giggling.
Thank you dear 🙂
