    Environmentalism in Popular Film

    How has the recent rise in awareness of our planet’s environmental crisis changed the way we tell stories? Such a wide, sweeping issue with such potentially devastating consequences can press itself into the general consciousness and affect creators all around the globe, allowing for an urgent and massive impact on what stories we choose to tell and how we choose to tell them. While there has been a recent surge in both apocalyptic and dystopian films, the question remains as to whether these are tied to the environmental crisis, sourced outside said crisis, or resting somewhere in between.

    • It would help to use a few examples like Mad Max: Fury Road, which was a very pro-environmentalist film. – luminousgloom 8 years ago

    I enjoyed this overview! I remember, as a kid, playing at this hands-on exhibit at the local children’s museum that allowed you to create your own rudimentary stop motion videos with tiny plastic dinosaurs, and it’s a method that has never failed to catch & keep my eye ever since. While CGI can often incur comparable hours and produce similar results, there is something that feels very deliberate in the creation of stop motion films. If nothing else, it’s a methodical art form that I hope holds a place in the future of film!

    Understanding the Art of Stop Motion

    I like how the story’s format allows for that juxtaposition of visual and textual output. There’s an element of stream of consciousness to Raleigh’s introduction and following thoughts that is directly contrasted though heightened by the normalcy of her outward reactions. It allows those moments when things bubble up to the surface to be only that much stronger of a revelation. Even after those revelations, however, I appreciate the self-doubt you mention O’Malley introducing into the narrative, as that may be one of the hardest things mental illness can face you with. Good article!

    Good article! I like the idea that poetry provided an outlet that often helped avoid true censorship but also self-imposed censorship in an attempt to spare loved ones. I would be interested to see how much of poetry from the Great War was published purely in retrospect, and how far out for that matter, though written on the battlefield. Something for me to look into!
