What inspired you when you were eleven years old?
Re-Creative is all about the art that has had an impact on creatives. For this first episode, Mark A. Rayner thought back to his childhood and came up with the movie that absolutely blew his mind.
He can still remember the visceral thrill of John Williams’ first few bars of music. The absolute shattering views of giant spaceships and the planet Tatooine below. And to an eleven-year-old, Darth Vader was terrifying!
Holy crap: lightsabers!
So this episode is about the first Star Wars movie. Is it the best movie ever? Probably not.
Did it change Mark’s life forever? You bet.
