Welcome to Class 8: Brainstorming: Unit 3, Part 6
Story 1: The first time I saw IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE, the last few minutes of it were on television when I walked into the room. Bailey was running through the snow-covered streets screaming. People were throwing money into baskets. Meaningful glances were exchanged. People cried. A bell rang. Some guy got some wings (I was disappointed later when I learned they weren’t Buffalo hot wings, but whatever.) It was about stuff that I cared about. The Spirit of Christmas. Community. Spirituality.
Story 2: During a Master Class a few months ago, I screened the last fifteen minutes of FINDING NEMO. Before I knew it, I was bawling like a baby. Yes, I’m that sappy. Now, I’ve seen that movie a million times so why did I have tears in my eyes? Because the dueling values in that thing are so strong you can’t help but lose it–no matter when or how many times you’ve seen it.
It’s easier to tell a good movie from a bad movie by its SUPERFREAK, so this week, we’re going to take a look at the SUPERFREAK you wrote last week and give it a road test. It’s about to get real y’all!
