We've been given a new brief to look at over Christmas in terms of research and getting ideas together. I have chosen the Movie Season brief, I have to create 5 10 second idents promoting a season of movies romf any given genre, i.e. Horror, 80's Teen Movies etc. I initially thought about doing 80's teen movies because I find the characters and dialogue from that genre quite fascinating and an attractive prospect to play with. However, I think I might turn this into 80's cult classics so I can include movies such as Ghostbusters, Gremlins and the Goonies.... The material is so vast, I need to look at what imagery and quotations I'd be most interested in playing with.
Here's some, but I'm not sure I agree with all of the ones on this video. Films I think of when I think of the 80's and cult films:
Ferris Bueller's Day Off.
Fast Times at Richmond High
The Karate Kid
Stand By Me
The Princess Bride etc.
However, the more I think about it, the films in this list that I am most attracted to are the John Hughes movies: 16 Candles, Breakfast Club etc. which I guess brings me back to 80's teen movies, however, given that John Hughes has recently dies, I think it would be quite current to do a series of Idents for a John Hughes movie season. Here's some movie quotes form his movies that I can utilize:
