I am a very visual person so I naturally gravitate towards movies. The 80’s movies that impacted me the most were the ones in the fantasy, sci-fi and horror genre. They intrigued and fascinated me and got me to wonder how these movies were created/constructed. Movies like Legend, Poltergeist, and Star Wars. These were the stories that I wanted to know more about.
Another form of storytelling in the 80’s that inspires me is Jamie Livingston-the man who took a Polaroid everyday. It is much more raw and intimate and I really appreciate that. Here is a link to some of his work. https://www.boredpanda.com/polaroid-photo-every-day-jamie-livingston/?utm_source=google&utm_medium=organic&utm_campaign=organic
