A Brief Encounter
I somehow feel 30 years too late:
I am a vegetarian, I listen to rock music, have long hair and sizeable side-burns.
Yes! Thirty years too late. Because right now, none of these things are fashionable. For that matter, they are proper 'turn-offs'!
Add to all that my admiration for The Godfather!
Last week Bristol hosted the 10th edition of the annual Brief Encounters short-film festival. I managed to catch a few screenings. But most of all I managed to spend 6 quid to attend Anthony Minghella's lecture.
When I began to worry that not too many of my classmates looked up to it, Anthony did me a huge favour by devoting a considerable amount of time discussing the restaurant scene in The Godfather. His focus was on Walter Murch's contribution.
Just that morning, we had had a nice discussion in class about sound design where I spent a considerable amout of time discussing the very scene.
I felt thoroughly vindicated!

Why impose boundaries and be blinded by what is beyond them?

Don't worry. We all know fashion evolves and you evolve with fashion. So remove your side burns and jell in with the crowd! :-)
