I admit it I'm a film geek

I may have mentioned this before but I love watching Behind the Scenes films/featurettes, as well as listening to DVD commentaries for movies. Especially if they deal with the choices made on how to create the movies and the meaning behind certain choices in order to tell the story the way it needs to be told. I know that some people find it boring but it really is awesome to watch or listen to.

It still amazes me sometimes how simple choices can create such a visual and emotional impact in the viewer. I really do hope that some day I'll get to see a film created from beginning to end in person. I know that filmmakers go through hell at times to get their stories on the screen but I would love to see the entire process.

By the way, if you have a chance to get hold of the DVD for The Missing (Tommy Lee Jones, Cate Blanchett), watch all of the short films in the extras. It's well worth your time. And also just want to say that the film totally rocks, its one of my favorite westerns.
