I ran into this little movie called Rare Exports Inc the other day. I truly enjoyed it. I'ts been a long time since i've seen something that has truly called out to my sensibilities as a storyteller.

This year, being the third year in the BAA program i've been exposed to my peer's sensibilities for story and it's been a learning experience, I sit and watch as ppl other then myself imbue a story with what they think will enhance it or solidify it, and most importantly make it engaging. Everyone represents an audience and they(most of the time) try to appease that audience when pleasing themselves, so in a way I've been exposed to many different audiences.

The story then gives powerful emphasis to otherwise simple actions. This forces the audience to come away from a film feeling they witnessed characters who have accomplished great things. The metaphors are present of course, there are always thinkers in the audiences and they enjoy feeling smarter then the rest for they not only found the analogy before the rest, they best understand it, weather it be political satire or ecological awareness.

Lastly the humor, it's present but it's subtle, it's speaks to the audience in that the people that hate comedy won't have any contempt towards the story, they won't feel anything undermined, yet the enthusiasts, will get their payoff...

To take a myth and re-imagine it; take something everyone knows and reformulate it with a different tone...yet a similar one
