|So I am in grad school when I get LEGACY OF THE SPELLMASTER finished last October, right? And to show it off I work selected scenes from Legacy into a presentation I had to give, using the two characters to demonstrate our prejudices about what we think is good and evil (not that Legacy made it that hard to figure out who was who, but it did get my audiences attention). |
That led to me showing the whole movie to one of my professors, the chairman of the whole Education Department. He says it was in his mind all over Xmas break, and when I see him in January he says, "I want you to make a documentary for me, and it will count for credit."
And I say, "How much creative control do I get?"
"All of it," he says. And I grin an evil grin.
I am in grad school for Education, so I can be a world famous small college town university professor someday. My Professor had written this article for publication about the perfect educational system, his Theory of Everything. About how why sitting students in nice neat rows of desks is stifling to their creativity and is the absolute wrong thing to do. He wanted me to turn his paper into a video.
With movie clips
And this is, like, a class.
So what you have here is a tour of the human brain, metaphorically speaking (Any relation to a 3D Simpsons episode is completely intentional). I spend 10 minutes pointing out what pieces we use for thinking, for learning, and what parts of our brain help us and what parts attempt to hurt us or slow us down, parts of the brain with other agendas (no one ever said learning was easy).
Now this is Part II of my total documentary. Part I was me walking thru regular classrooms pointing out what the teachers were doing wrong. The WHAT of the problem (and no FX whatsoever). Part II here is the WHY of the problem, why do teachers fall so easily into the old stereotypes of totalitarian classroom management.
Part III (when I am done) will be the SOLUTION to the problem, and may have a substantial number of FX in it as well.
So you have the middle story here. You didnt see the beginning and cant see the end, but I made all the Parts of the documentary to be self contained. This part makes complete sense all by itself as a tour of the brain. But if it helps, the last thing I said in Part I before it ended was.......
"If someone could tell us what the real problem really is, then that would be just swell." (Cue Part II)
Now as for the entity you may recognize at the end....
I hope the quote at the end gives you an idea how Part III is going to start out. After this is online, I will post a more detailed explaination about what the end means. A certain somebody is attempting to avoid stereotyping by playing the role of one of the parts of the brain. An often ignored part. He has a big role in Part III, which I may upload eventually as well.
Now this movie, Part II of it, comes in two parts. Get part 1 of Part II and then part 2 of Part II. Easy right? This doenst have the white knuckle action of LEGACY, but offers some brain food (literally) instead. Hope you find it a pleasant surprise and change of pace from all the severed limbs floating around here.
