What’s My Motivation, Pt. 1

There are many topics this blog entry could be about. In fact, there are many topics it *IS* about! And yet, dear reader, you can only learn the specific subject matter as you continue scrolling down through the related YouTube and Instagram posts.

I stumbled upon a great series by CineFix, that caught my eye last night. Knew it was blog-worthy.

Also wanted to implement more instagram posts in our directorG site, and found these particularly worthy — especially with Cannes Film Festival going on right now.

Creative storytelling is so crucial to great filmmaking — knowing what aspects can make it “brilliant” can be stored as good tools.

Kurosawa needs far more recognition today. So many people still think “The Magnificent Seven” came first; it was actually Kurosawa’s “The Seven Samurai.”

Ultimately, we reach our topic: a part of some high school movie dialogue ended up in our Thomas Productions logo animation for a period of time. Straight out of “Macbeth and the Crusades” from 2001, the dialogue in one scene starts like this:

Actor 1: Makeup!
Actor 2: What’s my motivation?
Director: Action!

How could I not use that origins to represent filmmaking? #Motivation
