This topic was definitely one to put forth well thought out choices when it came to movies that influenced me greatly through my life. Each choice of movies are certainly favorites of mine, but now that I think of them more, I put them into perspectives that I never thought of previously thought of until now as influential. Each movie is a different type of movie by genre, in which gives me different insight towards production and story development.
For my first choice, it was easily one of my all time favorites, Napoleon Dynamite. In my opinion, this movie was extraordinary in it’s way that it started off as a short and expanded into a full length film. The film is hilarious and didn’t rely on high use of special effects. I seen this as influential as the means that all projects can continue on in new fashions and further develop your film in a way that you feel will get your story across.
Next also follows along the lines that movies don’t need big special effects to be outstanding. This a horror movie classic, Halloween from the Halloween series. This movie influenced me that sometimes horror can take any form in any way, as long as the context is well received and the story line keeps us gripped to what we’re watching.
For my third movie, I chose a music documentary because it covers two of my favorite things in music and documentaries, this is documentary is on one of rocks greatest albums and one of rocks greatest bands, Pink Floyd: The Making of The Dark Side of the Moon. Easily influential to me because it documents what was done behind the scenes of the album and what the band’s history was during the time of producing the album. I take much consideration into how production is made through musical projects and this documentary is a prime example of how production should be documented.
