How to dive into humanity's heart ( and mess it up )?
Hey my friends,
I am currently looking for inspiration for a short film script that will be a hommage on the final 30 minutes of 'Apocalypse Now'. Not in terms of story or imagery, more in terms of the higher meaning / theme.
Do you know any movies - or writing techniques - on how to transport a character from the real world deep into the theme of what it means to be a human being?
This would be my main inspiration: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u1D2_bovy20 Not exactly what he says, but the feeling you get by watching the video.
It's a deeply philosophical question and I am looking for practical techniques in terms of writing, shooting and lighting a project like this.
So if you know short films or feature's about that topic, I'd love to hear about them.
