Dear Alex and Molly
From studying and viewing the filmmaking styles of Wes Anderson and Taika Waititi, I really liked how they integrated themes into each of their filmmaking style. In addition to the short films from Pixar as they also use themes to but each of the storylines take inspiration from personal experiences and for my short film, I wanted to utilize themes around a personal experience of mine. The short film follows eighteen-year-old Mabel, who writes a letter to her two former best friends reflecting on the hardships and lessons she has learned from each of those friendships. I aim to study my degree for three years then work in the film and television industry then undertake a master’s in education to teach young people the art of filmmaking.
