So July has arrived and with it, my 7th short film of the year. I’ve decided to take on the genre of action movie this month as there’s nothing better then a mid-summer action-packed blockbuster spectacular! Ok, so my film may not quite have Bruce Willis sending cars careening into nearby hovering helicopters or Robert Downey Jr. flying around in a mechanical suit, but I’m still hoping I can ramp up the energy with a good chase or maybe a suspense-filled fight.
But thinking of action movies, does anyone have any favorites? Or maybe a favorite action sequence like the opening to Raiders of the Lost Ark or the Mini Cooper car chase in the Italian Job or the sequence in The Matrix when Neo and Trinity break into the building to rescue Morpheus… How about it? Any favorites?
