Keep in touch
I want to apologize ahead of time. While I have written this website on a very steady and trustworthy platform for content management called wordpress, any techy would tell you that wordpress is far from perfect. While it does a great job by enlarge, it does suffer database hiccups from time to time. Don’t be surprised if sometimes links don’t go to where they’re supposed to go or if stuff just was not inputted properly.
If you feel that there’s certain elements of the website that are so problematic that it gets in the way of you enjoying the content here, I’d love to hear from you. Please report any bad links so I can get to the bottom of the problem once I find the time.
Also, if you have any ideas as to how to better present the information I’m trying to get across, I’d love to hear from you as well. As the old saying goes, 2 heads are better than 1 and instead of working with 1+1, when you put 2 heads together, you actually start working with exponential numbers. In other words, instead of just adding one idea on top of the other, we actually start multiplying ideas and really take things to a whole other level.
I’m not just spouting theory here. I’m not just telling you what I think, but my opinion is I’ve seen this with my own 2 eyes. I’m a veteran of several student films and I’ve had a hand in some Hollywood productions and let me tell you, often time, the very best films are not the result of advanced planning or a tremendous amount of pre meditation. Often times, they’re the result of a last minute, improvised line or last minute decision.
If you need proof of this, one of the most powerful and griping scenes in Godfather 1 involved Marlon Brando caressing a cat as he played Vito Corleone. A person came in to ask a favor of the godfather and Marlon Brando was just improvising his line s while he was petting the cat. It was all improvised. The cat was just a spur of the moment decision on Brando’s part. Apparently, it wasn’t even in the script, but that scene would not have worked as well as it did if it weren’t for that cat.
If you load that scene on YouTube and see how much love that cat had for Brando as he stroked and played with it, you can see how this raw intensity of all the people in the scene helped make Godfather probably the best movie ever made. I know that’s one hell of a claim and it’s definitely a claim one should not make likely, but I have yet to see any real competition that would make me doubt that assertion.
Do yourself a big favor. Let us know your thoughts, improvisations or any random ideas. You’d be surprised as to how well it looks if it’s properly implemented on this website and elsewhere.
