Cinema Paradiso: Growing Up in a World of Film...


The original Dumbo animated film caught my imagination as well as films like Dot and the Kangaroo, which had been gifted to us children from an aunt in England. Who can forget the psychedlic elephant dance or the dreaded bunyip from Australian mythology? Since these were the '80s, the days before Pixar dominated the home entertainment of most family homes, Disney still ruled. There were regular TV shows like G.I. Joe, Dino-Riders and Gummi Bears, as well as He-man, Bravestarr and Ghostbusters from Filmation... shows that were influential to me growing up. I remember the fortified town's emergency mode from Bravestarr being the inspiration for many drawings. A friend of mine named Evan and I were both very into our art, allowing our imagination to spill onto the page, whether it be drawing knights (possibly an inspiration from my medieval Lego sets) or heavily fortified buildings with gun turrets. These were the days when you actually had to use ink and paper.

These shows of fantasy and high adventure, some with a science-fiction element, were revered and entertained us as impressionable kids. While the episodic nature, formula and enjoyability kept them popular, the VHS tape with Dumbo and Dot and the Kangaroo got plenty of replay value too. It was a big step up from watching local kids TV shows like Pumpkin Patch and Wielie Walie, which had their place but were no contest for the dream actualisation and storytelling ability of the Filmation series.

growing up in a world of film

I can remember hearing the theme tune to shows like Twin Peaks and Dallas echoing through the passage as my parents switched to more adult-themed TV series at roundabout 8:30 on weeknights. The big thing at that age was trying to watch shows that you weren't allowed to, constantly being intrigued by the VHS covers at the local video store, displaying the titles and images of films that were not for young eyes. The Fright Night VHS cover was particularly nightmarish, enough to give you the chills even just looking at it. I remember the cover for It, where Pennywise has elongated monster fingers peering from up on high in an equally frightening scenario. Powerful images like the one from Platoon where Sergeant Elias is gunned down also left a mark.

I remember watching films at a friend's house where the odd sleepover often resulted in catching an M-NET movie in the 2-16 age restriction category. The most infamous of these viewings was Child's Play, about a possessed doll named Chucky who "just wants to play". Being a toy, there must have been some curiosity but I must say that the scene involving the actual possession did linger, reinforcing that striking Ster-Kinekor and FPB advert where images from a horror movie are flashed across the boys face as he sleeps.

The biggest mistake was probably watching Stephen King's It when the M-NET movie guide was giving it the 2-10 age restriction, which subsequently went up to 2-12, 2-14 and 2-16 with subsequent TV guides. I remember watching It in my parent's bedroom, alone probably because no one else really wanted to watch it. The anticipation must have been incremental since I had been counting the days until I turned 10. Nevermind the dreams of being shunted down a dark passage of doorways until a scythe from one of the empty doorways before pulling me in. Once again, 2-10 still seems quite low for that TV miniseries, which probably haunts some viewers today even if they were older than the required viewing age.

All this is to say that film has had a considerable influence, which started in my childhood and has remained, allowing me to cultivate my fascination and love for the medium into my adulthood. The power of dreams, the ability for filmmakers to take you to other worlds and the knack for capturing your emotional state and engaging with you on an intellectual level, it's one of those rare things that entertain and compels viewers. Isn't it funny how many of these shows and films have been remade for modern audiences... probably by people who were also influenced growing up?

The human mind is complex and film is multifaceted, from integrating various art forms to relaying hundreds of messages about culture, style, politics, gender, sexuality... the list goes on. Most, time capsules for the age, it's very revealing in the way the medium is controlled by those with the power at the time. This gives it a certain level of undercover honesty, which you'll experience when watching old Bond films that have a lot to say about the ideals of masculinity at the time.

We really don't realise the influence that film has over us, empathising for villains or operating on a much more subconscious level. It's no wonder that film has often been the first choice for propaganda, controlling the viewpoint and in so doing trying to realise an agenda. This is probably why horror films don't scare me as much as the ulterior motives of those making the film.

Having always found inspiration in the creative pursuits of English and art, it seemed like a natural progression for me to try and combine my passion for both fields into a pursuit that requires an understanding of both, film criticism. I hope that I can continue to watch films, from the perspective of enjoyment and analysis well into my old age. While they can be dangerous, intoxicating and subversive, they are equally dreamy, inspiring and powerful in bringing about positive change.

 
'The Three Wells' Podcast featuring Vicki Bawcombe


The Three Wells podcast is based on the principles expressed in Matthew Kalil's book, The Three Wells of Screenwriting. Working screenwriters, film professors, first-time screenwriters, adaptation writers, TV writers, commissioned writers, script editors, playwrights, novelists, songwriters, journalists, documentary writers... anyone looking to break into their next idea or overcome writer's block can benefit from this practical screenwriting aid.

With Spling as the host of The Three Wells podcast, Matthew gets to the nitty-gritty of what it takes to be a writer, how to find inspiration and how to apply The Three Wells of Screenwriting methodology through the lens of the films, TV shows and novels of screenwriters and authors.

Vicki Bawcombe is a screenwriter, script editor, story facilitator and arts practitioner, who has facilitated studies at AFDA, City Varisty, UCT and SAE Institute.

Pivoting around the metaphor of a well and finding your deep sources of inspiration, the concept deals with the External Sources well, the Imagination well and the Memory well. Kalil discusses how one digs into each of these wells in terms of what's been gleaned from pop culture, what the mind can fathom and how our experiences can be leveraged in the writing process.

An extension of the book, Kalil uses the podcast as a platform to discuss the writing process with renowned screenwriters and authors to unpack how they've come to rely on each of these wells in their writing journeys. Speaking about each of these wells and finding out how these screenwriters operate, you'll be able to get a better understanding of the core principles at play in The Three Wells of Screenwriting and hopefully be inspired by some of the ideas and concepts for your own projects.

Here's a review of Matthew Kalil's book, which will give you a much greater understanding and a veritable treasure trove of honest advice that has helped him and is worth revisiting.

This The Three Wells podcast was recorded at Fine Music Radio's recording studio at the Artscape in Cape Town, South Africa.

Six Top Movies to Watch Out for in 2019


Movie enthusiasts are already gearing up for an exciting 2019. The film studios have begun to release trailers for their upcoming releases and excitement is building among the film-going public. Some of the films are already being talked about for film awards by Springbok mobile players and other movie aficionados.

Some of the upcoming 2019 films to watch out for include:

six movies to watch in 2019

What Men Want

In 2000 Mel Gibson starred as Nick, a chauvinistic male executive who suddenly gained the ability to hear what the women around him were thinking. Nick’s first instinct is to try to rid himself of this curse but he starts to realize that he can manipulate women by using the ability to read their minds to his advantage.

In the 2019 sequel, What Women Want, sports agent Ali Davis (Henson) is passed over for a promotion at her agency. Soon after that incident, she experiences an accidental knock on the head and suddenly finds that she has the ability to hear men's inner thoughts.

Ali begins to use this newfound ability to try to understand what it takes to succeed in a "man's world". Her ultimate aim is to outsmart her co-workers in a race to represent an up-and-coming basketball star. The question is, while Ali's new power is helping her get ahead, could it also be putting other important parts of her life at risk?

This is a feel-good comedy that gets a little raunchy at times but is basically a good film for the entire family.

Lego Movie 2

The 2014 Lego Movie was the surprise hit of 2014 for the younger set. That computer-animated adventure comedy film followed Lego characters around as good Lego guys battle the Lego villains to save the world.

The new movie picks up where the old one left off. Bricksburg is now a post-apocalyptic wasteland but Emmet, the hero of Lego Movie, must prepare to defend his hometown and his friends against new invaders. The movie includes many of the elements of the first film including characters, intergalactic action, Duplo intervention and royalty. When the evil Watevra Wa-Nabi launches an attack designed to take over the universe, Emmet and intergalactic hero Rex Dangervest team up to do battle to defend friends, family and fellow Bricksburg citizens.

The technology and imagination of Lego Movie 2 promise to be everything that Lego Movie delivered and more.

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

This is the third -- and ostensibly final chapter -- of DreamWorks’ How to Train Your Dragon trilogy. The first How to Train your Dragon film of the series followed a hapless young Viking who sets out to hunt dragons and learns that there are more to dragons than he assumed when one of the dragons becomes his friend.

How to Train Your Dragon 2, which came out in 2014, focuses on the characters Hiccup and Toothless who discover an ice cave where hundreds of wild dragons live. They encounter the mysterious Dragon Rider and embark on a battle to protect the peace.

The 2019 film, How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, takes the viewers into the peaceful dragon utopia which Hiccup is trying to create. Toothless, however, discovers an untamed, elusive mate which draws away the Night Fury, causing danger to mount. Hiccup's reign as village chief is tested and he must join with Toothless to save their kingdom.

Greyhound

Tom Hanks wrote the screenplay and has the starring role in this WWII drama about Commander Ernest Krause, a naval commander who is charged with leading a convoy of 37 Allied ships across the North Atlantic while they elude pursuing German U-boats. The movie is based on the book, The Good Shepherd by C.S. Forester, a nautical war novel that explores a career Navy officer who embarks on his first wartime mission. Krause must lead the captains of the other vessels who are younger and junior to him in rank but who have already seen battle. He fears that he is unsuited to combat and, as he sets out on a battle of wits against the Germans, he must battle his own self-doubts and feelings of inexperience and inferiority.

The tale moves past the crossing, which concludes successfully, as Krause’s skills are acknowledged and he is given command of 'The Greyhound', a navy destroyer. Like the book, the movie illustrates the struggles that the Navy encountered during the Atlantic war, especially the exhaustion brought on by constant tension and vigilance. The movie also touches on the problems of early radar and the difficulty experienced due to poor communications between the High Command and the fleet as radio operators struggled with HF Radio and early manual cryptography.

Avengers: Endgame

The coming year won’t be devoid of superhero movies and the new Avengers film promises to be one of the best. Following hot on the heels of the highly successful 2018 Avengers: Infinity War – Part I comes Avengers: Infinity Wars – Part II, titled “Endgame.” The storyline of the Endgame movie revolves around the attempt to bring resolution to the conflict between Thanos, the Mad Titan, and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. The war has been raging since the last episode and now Hawkeye, Ant-man, and Tony of Lost in Space are joining the fray.

Superhero movie fans will likely find Endgame to be quite satisfying as this movie marks the end of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s “phase three”.

Dumbo

It’s one thing to make a live-action movie with human actors and inanimate objects but Dumbo adds animal characters to the mix in a heart-stopping remake of the Disney 1941 classic about a baby elephant who can fly, the people who are ready to exploit him and his friends who stand with him.

The movie follows the original storyline faithfully but adds new elements that give viewers a highly engaging and compelling movie experience.

2019 promises to be an exciting year for movie fans of any genre.
