30 Day #FilmTwitter Film Challenge – Day One

Name the first movie you remember watching

The first task in the 30 Day Film Challenge taken from #FilmTwitter is:

1. Name the first movie you remember watching

The first movie I remember seeing was Star Wars Episode IV, A New Hope. This movie transformed my life, even though I didn’t realise that at the time. It was a first of many things for me; the first time I remember seeing a movie with my Dad (which is when his obsession with film and in particular, Star Wars became mine), the first time I knew what it was like to become totally enthralled with a fictional world, and the first time I’d ever seen a farm boy with golden hair and eyes as blue as the sky become a reluctant hero in a war in the stars.

It was truly a once in a life-time experience.

And since Star Wars and film are so prominent in my life, I decided to throw in a little motion art I made of this iconic Star Wars poster designed and painted by Tom Jung in 1977:

30 Day Film Challenge From #FilmTwitter

Join me on this 30 Day Film Challenge started on #FilmTwitter!

So I found this 30 Day Film Challenge when I saw James Gunn posting it on his twitter for #FilmTwitter. If you are a movie nut, you should definitely consider joining Twitter for the film twitter hashtag. I see lots of encouragement for movie fans and people who want to be active and vocal about the movies they love, and that is an inspiration to me as a cinephile.

The awesome thing about this is the sense of community around it. There are some accounts I follow who are extremely active and make my time on Twitter that much more enjoyable. I don’t really like Twitter, as a rule, I had a bad experience on my Star Wars account regarding my “unpopular opinion” about the death of Luke Skywalker, and I’ve never fully recovered from that. So finding something positive on social media is a blessing to me, which I want to share with all of you or with whoever may enjoy it.

Here is the 30 Day Challenge:

I am going to try and do this starting tomorrow and blog about each topic for 30 days straight. If you’d like to join me, my twitter account is @JulieGWritingNZ or if you’d just prefer to do it on your blog, let me know in the comments so I can keep track with you!

I feel excited about this, it’s going to be loads of fun!
