Welcome to the Thunder Blog!
After having completed my masters in Film Studies back in August 2020, one of my goals for 2021 is to continue researching and writing, even if it is just for my own pleasure. I've always enjoyed researching and reviewing films, whether its for education, online reviews or Zoom quizzes, so my goal is to put out a new piece of writing every month in 2021. We'll see how it goes.
If any of you are reading this and have an interest in the behind the scenes of film, design or the history of film production, please feel free to leave a comment below if there's anything in particular you'd like to learn! I will also be reworking some essays and presentations I've written in the past year while studying, which cover a broad range of topics from cross-dressing in rom-coms, surrealism in early comedy and the nostalgic power of post-modern horror, to the works of art that influence film design such as Eyvind Earle's huge influence on Disney's Sleeping Beauty (1959). So stay tuned for some interesting facts and insights to some of your favourite films (hopefully!)
