My Experience With Film
Written by Cameron Smith
I, despite being a naive 17 year old, like to think I have been a lot of places. This is quite contradictory: I haven't seen England, I haven't been to the muddy waters of Mississippi, and I haven't even grown to see my honeymoon! However, I have delved into a lot of places concerning the human experience, one of those being film. Movies have a special place in my heart. I remember watching films as little as 4 and 5 years old -- Toy Story, Star Wars, The Incredibles, Monsters Inc., School of Rock, and The Goonies were a few of the films I watched constantly. I remember just a few years ago becoming a movie nut; ah, such fun times. I have studied quite a few of the great directors in previous years: Stanley Kubrick, Quentin Tarantino, the Coen Brothers, Martin Scorsese, and Steven Spielberg. Whether it's a series of intertwining events, a Space Odyssey, a tale of the human condition, a boy befriending an extra-terrestrial, or a hippie caught in an identity crisis, one thing is for sure: I love movies!
