Emma, truly, thank you for this! A friend of mine told me the other day that I didn’t love characters so much as moments and this is especially true of romantic moments. So I’m delighted to be able to talk about these.
These are in no particular order and are obviously only some of my many favorite.
Okay no one laugh! :D Alright, I know it’s cliche etc. and yes this movie has a lot of unnecessary stuff in it and I’m not even sure I love it as a whole, but this confession of love has always blown me away. It’s so sincere and it’s delivered so sincerely and I just. The fact that it takes place in a room full of divorced women complaining about the men in their lives does make it funnier.
2. Victoria and Albert-
No not the Young Victoria nor the new 2016 series, this is an older mini-series. Sadly, I don’t have a clip, though I’ve been looking forever! To sum up, Victoria and Albert have been married for years and he finally tells her he loves her. That sounds extremely harsh but in context- both historically and cinematically- it makes sense. All he says is, “I want you to know how deeply I love you.” It’s unbelievably, ridiculously tender, straightforward, and sweet. I held my breath waiting for this moment and when it happened I cried. I still think about it all the time.
Are these my favorite A&R moments? I’m not sure, I love them all. I love the first clip because anytime Amy lets down her guard and really tells Rory how much she loves him kills me. The second clip isn’t one moment but it’s a little homage to one of my favorite Amy/Rory episodes and has some of my favorite quotes. THe whole episode is INSANELY heartbreaking and frustrating but I’ve always thought of it as a heightened look at their relationship and really makes you understand what’s at stake for them? I’m crying.
I had to have a Jane Austen confession of love in here! All of them are perfect in their own ways but this letter cuts right to the heart and says everything he wants to say and she wants to hear in only a few lines. The gravity of it, the completely unembarrassed emotion, the completeness of his love? I’m sensing a common theme here. :D
This surprises me too but it’s a great scene! The way she tells him that it’ll be easier if he leaves and he says I know and then just takes another step towards her…yeah, i love it. And have thought about it way more than anyone involved in the writing/production of that scene ever intended me to.
Bonus: the most romantic scene in (perhaps) the stupidest movie of all time!
I know you know what I’m talking about Emma :D but for everyone else, may I present…………..
Why doesn’t she marry him?? WHY????? This will forever be the greatest mystery to me. This is a direct and thrillingly sweet confession of love, just understated enough to be surprising, nearly perfect in every way and yet the movie gets it wrong. Somehow this movie couldn’t figure out where its greatest strength was. (John Krasinski!! In a sweater!! Telling a girl that she is home to him!!!) It got it wrong and I’m both horrified and weirdly fascinated that they (writer, director, someone) could have filmed this scene the way they did and still have messed up the direction of their love story.
Look, I know it’s a crappy romantic comedy from 2011 that nobody remembers and I should probably move on but I can’t!! I won’t!! I refuse!!
Thank you for doing this, Emma. It was so much fun and I talked way too much.
✨Hi !✨ I can finally share with you my full piece for the ⛸ @born-to-make-history-zine⛸, it was a great project ! I did this illustration early January, so I wanted to see both of them celebrate the New year in Paris 🇫🇷 ! Used photo ref for the backgrounds, tried stylisation experiment etc…
🍙Soon new WIP for a new short film🍣… Thank you for your support.👍
I’m excited to share the product of my absence! For the past year, my thesis partner and good friend Esteban Bravo and I have been developing a computer animated short film, “In a Heartbeat,” for our senior thesis project at Ringling College of Art + Design. We are launching this Kickstarter to help cover the costs of hiring a professional composer and sound designer for our film!
“In a Heartbeat” follows an insecure middle school boy who has yet to come to terms with his sexuality. When he crosses paths with the most popular boy in school, his heart pops out of his chest to go after the boy of his dreams. Please visit the Kickstarter page for more development, information, and production artwork on the project!
We are currently mid-production, about to wrap on animation and begin lighting, rendering, and compositing the film, but we need YOUR help to make this film the best that it can be! Any contribution helps, be it a donation or simply sharing the video and spreading the word!
THANK YOU SO MUCH! This film has been a true labor of love for us both and I am so excited to share the finished film with you this Spring!
