Last Request.

So, in college, I took a film course, it was the only offered at our college.  There I learned how to write all types of scripts and review movies.  Our final was making a short from beginning to end that included making the script, making storyboards, filming, which meant learning blocking, and editing, based off a prompt the prof gave us.  It was a lot of work, but a lot of fun.

On thing the course taught was to look deeper.  He showed us a wine commercial, then, asked us what he was about.  Of course, we said wine.  He said no, it was about sex.  He went back through it practically frame by frame showing how NOBODY was actually drinking, but in just about every from there was something sexual whether it be the way the actors and actresses were, or he even showed us statue with bodies entwined.

Did you know E.T. is an allegory for the life of Christ?  Check it: He came down, he taught, he was misunderstood, he died, and he rose.  Crazy, huh?  There were others.

J, where you going with this?


Yeah, it’s a beer commercial, but the guys never drink.  That’s not the point.  The point is about legacy, about kinship as the son and his friends returns his dad’s keepsakes and ashes back to his fave place he and his friends used to hang.  Deep, huh?

Be good to each other.
