This video gave me chills. This is the feeling I’ve had my whole life about films, perfectly exemplified in a YouTube video I stumbled upon by pure accident.
I’m transported back the the 4th grade when I did a science project on visual effects in films. Now this was the 90’s and my current obsession was Tim Burton’s masterpiece Batman, which would set the stage and the bar for all future superhero movies. In retrospect, the obsession was with the magic, the illusion if you will, of a different reality where anything is possible and that anyone with a camera and an imagination can sew their dreams. The power of this medium and it’s potential inspires me and my projects today.
