Comment: “So what happened to those members of the High School Marching Band?”
Reply: “Last I heard they marched off to college and got a degree in education.”
Setting technological accomplishments aside, the shift from human evolution to devolution appears to have begun (metaphorically) with the first person who poked a stick through their lower lip…and then convinced others it represented a cultural step forward. If you have any doubt about how far that ‘step forward’ has progressed, take a look at the brief video in Evolution vs. Devolution #9 and/or the opening clip from The Gods Must Be Crazy ;-)
Can a three minute film really be compelling and tell a complete story?
British film director Sir Ridley Scott launched a global film-making contest for aspiring directors. It’s titled, “Tell It Your Way.” There were over 600 entries.
The film could be no longer than three minutes, contain only six lines of narrative and be a compelling story.
The winner was “Porcelain Unicorn” from American director Keegan Wilcox. It’s a story of the lifetimes of two people who are totally opposite, yet, very much the same – all told in less than 3 minutes.
You’ll see why it won.
