The LIGHTING? How so? x-D
How would YOU execute it better then?
THANK YOU. And it's sadder because this comes from the filmmaking community, which are supposed to be purveyors of trends and ad-curves as well. But....that's man-boys for ya
This method of storytelling is WAAAAAAY overdue.
We began working on these elements years ago in the game industry for RPG design flowcharts. It's high time film got a similar treatment.
Call a spade a spade.
Privileged people always look for depth and existentialism in shallow sources mostly because they're coming from places of little-to-no culture whatsoever. Many times films are just flat out trash and there's nothing wrong with saying it. Just because there's an audience for something doesn't make it any less trash. Trash has audiences and cult followings all the time, regardless of the mediums. Hell I have a collection of movies also that are complete garbage in almost every way except cinematography, but you won't catch me fooling myself into saying they're "good/not for me". Some things objectively CAN be judged and others are subjective as well.
No need to sugar-coat things that don't need to be. Some films are genuinely obtuse, yes. But usually the gray goop consists of trash. Indie and studio alike.
Bad films is bad. Period
We also have PLENTY of new voices, new unique voices in film today. The problem is that we're TIRED of hearing the same elements from the same demographic; so everything is bland and flat out dull. Maybe if folks quit looking at Eurocentric elements as the PRIMARY source for filmmaking; an end all be all standard, maybe we could get somewhere on a different, stronger path collectively as filmmakers.
Don't care for a next PTA. I'd much rather hear from the next new creative genius on their own steam. Not someone to call the "next"-anything/anyone, really.
Dumb people do dumb 'ish; same thing, different day.
Friggin' movie wasn't even THAT good to begin with, honestly, so this trend escapes me so hard x-D
It's always the same background of folks too. Hilariously sad.
Bring on Idiocracy, shall we!!!!
