Show Notes

A first podcast from us in what seems like forever, a first since our rebrand to Big Geek Life and I am joined by Stewart from Social Echo, the place in which we have recorded this episode, and who have kindly allowed us to use their equipement. We discuss John Hughes; his films and impact on the films of today and then go off on random tangents, including John Candy, Michael Bay, Remakes/Reboots, Snyder Cut, Bill & Ted, Top Gun: Maverick, COVID19 and so many more... There are a few outlandish statements in this!

Creating Original Ideas

Alex & I take a break for the slating and downbeat and look to invigorate those who are looking to be creative, be original, be different and challenge Hollywood's remake culture at the moment. This was all Alex's idea by the way! Haha! We discuss the most important areas to help you be more creative and original and how that relates to films and tv shows, giving examples of where those who have challenged and been different have shone through and taken us on a journey through new processes. With so much going on, we wanted to inspire others to put themselves out there and create content that can push boundaries and give them the tools to do so. We actively encourage scripts and screenplays to be sent in and we can give feedback etc. We hope this is a nice break from the norm and is informative and helpful, along with our choices of music to help us push ourselves forward in times of "blocks" We genuinely hope you like this one off. Don't forget to leave us a review :) ...
