I want to say that I do love any type of film making, whether it be history to documentary to sci-fi and animation, comedy, suspense and anything in between. I watch films, first for the entertainment, second for the actual film making techniques used to relay the story to the audience and finally to see how the film made me feel overall. So, with that clarified, I do want to say a few words about the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton.
I wasn’t having a good week this past one, so by Friday I decided to escape from the norm by watching the Royal Wedding. At first I thought, this was going to be yet another boring Royal Wedding like Princesses Diana and Charles or Fergie and that other brother. But, as the film unfolded, I felt much better. I actually smiled and felt all giddy, so technically it was working.
Besides the fact, the couple who married were actually in-love and expressed it so beautifully throughout their day, I enjoyed the film making techniques used to capture the event in the most precise and effective fashion. I was truly captivated by all the beauty, the simplicity, the elegance and by the end of the reality film, I actually had tears in my eyes.
I do recommend the short films, which are currently available online on most any site ( I watched BBC News, just in case you are wondering), to help put a smile on your face, just in case you are having a bad day. It is refreshing and most certainly therapeutic for any tired mind.
