Then, as of late, for some strange unforeseen reason, I found myself watching America's Next Top Model... Well, I guess it's not that unforeseeable, but simply uncharacteristic of me. The main reason why I've been watching it is for the photo shoot sessions. The moment the un-entertaining and stupid drama begins, I turn the channel, but while they're taking pictures, I tune in. Basically, despite most of the crap that makes up the show, they do actually have pretty good concepts and ideas for some shoots. One them that really intrigued me was the 'stereotypes' one, it's just such an original approach to something that's well, a 'stereotype'.
So then I got to thinking...yes, I know, that's dangerous, but bear with me... Why don't I do something like that, but make it 'Hollywood Stereotypes'? You know, every kind of stereotypical character that Hollywood and the general media ever evoked and played on religiously. Like the all powerful, no flaws action Hero, and the fragile damsel in distress, and the nerdy, can't get a date for his life, although he's really a hot model underneath the ridicules glasses, guy and the Jock with a below zero average IQ who's got more muscles than little gray cells jerk and the ever miserable, emo-drama loving 'outcast' teenager and the all about sex vixen with a license to psychotic killings... I mean, truly, there are just so many!! I mean, the list could on forever! ... Well, not really, but you get my meaning.
Also, I've been thinking that aside from Hollywood stereotypes, I could do a project of Cinema Classics, in which I attempt to capture the essence of some of the best and most recognizable classic movies ever made. Some like Casablanca, Gone with the Wind, and just classics that grow even better as time passes. This project will of course be a lot trickier, not only because of the subject matter, but in how I can take the 'essence' of it without really copying any of the well known images... But I like it, it's challenging, and if done right, it should be a hell of a result.
Casablanca, of course ^_^
The Son of Shiek with Rudolf Valentino
And you know, I've also been thinking of doing an 'Adult Cinema stereotypes', like the ridiculesly buffed up and incredibly sexy gardener or pizza delivery boy... LOL That one should be funny to work on... *wiggles eyebrows*
Live long and Prosper!
