Jules and Jim

cinemaburn

Both Jules and Jim live the bohemian lifestyle in Paris during the turn of the century. They appreciate poetry, art, cafes, and women. They get together to talk about philosophy alongside personal problems. You see, Jules wants a woman to love. But every woman he encounters in Paris does not meet his high standards. Either they are flighty (like the steam engine girl) or not intelligent enough (like the many whores he visits). But Jim, he has a girl. A girl who is faithful and loving and boring.

Suspense 101

A Dreamer Walking

There are two ways to create entertainment for those who choose to watch your film. 1. You create entertainment through enlightening, humoring, or awing your audience in the present tense. 2. You create entertainment through expectation of the future; creating a sort of mystery and suspense that keeps your audience member on the edge of his or her seat in anticipation.

I have seen several moments/scenes/sequences in film that will stay with me for the rest of my life. I was in awe of the land of Pandora when watching Avatar for the first time. The sequence where Jake and the rest of the Na’vi go up the mountain cliffs to ride the ikran was unbelievable and an unforgettable experience.
