Today's topic is an example of an Oscar. The Academy Awards. If you want to make a great movie and win an Oscar, try doing something never done before.
The Ten Commandments was a movie that won an Oscar in 1957 for special effects. It was amazing to see the parting of the Red Sea. It was a Bible story brought to life in film and was exciting to see. The burning bush and seeing the pillar of fire was exciting to see too. I haven't seen another movie done like that one. The movie is a 1956 epic religious drama film produced, directed, and narrated by Cecil B. DeMille, shot in Vista Vision (Color by Technicolor) and released by Paramount Pictures.
Today movies seem to be quickly made with computer adding special effects, but when I look at the special effects in the movie of The Ten Commandments, it looks so real.
The Wizard of Oz was another great example of an Oscar type of movie and also Gone With the Wind.
So if you want to make a great movie and win an Oscar, think of the movies that won oscars. Think of something great to make a movie about. Try to make a movie that you know people would want to see. Some movies are made fast and confusing. Some movies are just not good at all. When I think about how the old movies were made, I can tell that they were made well and made from the heart. We need movies to be made like that today...
