I have always been a visual person
If you were to ask me what my favorite film is, I would say without hesitation, “The Black Stallion
from 1979 hands down.” From my earliest childhood memories, I recall being awed and
enraptured by this film. Even before I could truly understand the dialogue or what was going
on in the story, I would watch with rapt attention. Just about the entire film is like watching a
masterpiece painting. The DP, Caleb Deschanel, gives you a visual feast in each scene. I
didn’t know it then, but the reason why I loved this film and still love it now is because of the
amazing visuals. It was without question that I would become a visual storyteller.
