A Story to Tell , with Images and Sound , and Sometimes even a Message hidden inside .
The Art of Film .
I Spent the Morning watching ” The Making of Silent Running ” Silent running was one of My favourite Sci Fi’s . But How it was made is even more interesting . Where , What, When, How , all the Actors , Droids , and Environment were all manufactured inside a Pre Fabbed environment that blended so well with the idea , you couldn’t help but let yourself in .
They made Silent Running on a Budget of just over a Million dollars . Yet travelled a Million Light Years .
All done on real Film , With Real Actors ( even the droids) Every prop was Made , not Digitised .
Editing and Composition was all Real Time , Manual , and no Undo feature in the menu .
Have you seen Silent Running ? Or Better Yet , were you at the Right Age and in the right time period so that it had the right affect on your reality ? To see it in Todays world , it might seem Outdated or even Cheesy to the Younger Digital crowd , But if your into Film or Creativity and the Art of the Story , then Take yourself out of this Time Period , allow yourself to forget this Digital World for a time period , and Pretend that your seeing a Film for the very first time , Allow yourself to be Fascinated , ….yes Fascinated , To Allow ourselves to be Amazed at something , rather than be Jaded by all that surrounded us on a Day to Day basis . Jaded ,… When Nothing Fascinates or Amazes , because we have been Saturated with everything , we lose the simple Joys that make life interesting and worth it . The Artist , Musicians , Painters , Sculptors , all Allow themselves to be Fascinated , in order to be inspired and keep the Ability to Create the Art you enjoy and ….The Stories you Watch and Listen to , and are inspired by .
