J.J. Abrams on Magic of Moviemaking


“As the Emmy-winning creator of the smart, addictive TV dramas Lost, Alias and Felicity, J.J. Abrams’ name looms large on the small screen. As the writer/director behind the blockbuster explode-a-thon Mission: Impossible III, the upcoming Cloverfield and the next Star Trek movie, these days Abrams also rules the big screen — bringing his eye for telling detail and emotional connection to larger-than-life stories.

Abrams’ enthusiasm — for the construction of Kleenex boxes, for the quiet moments between shark attacks in Jaws, for today’s filmmaking technologies, and above all for the potent mystery of an unopened package — is incredibly infectious.”

“As a boy, JJ Abrams was fascinated with magic. As a television writer, director, and producer, he has beguiled audiences with a masterful use of suspense, plot reversals, and special effects.”

    As I stated on Twitter, colegle is a great place to learn how to learn as well as make lifelong friendships. As a young entrepreneur, I think true friendship can be hard to come by because you’re always spending time making connections . You need someone to hang out with when you don’t want to be working Also, as someone mentioned, colegle is one of the best ways to meet a future spouse in my opinion, but it’s definitely not the only way.As you already know, I’m starting my senior year of colegle and I’m only 18. And even though I’m spending a lot of time studying, I have a lot of time to work on iPhone apps, websites, and travel. If you really want to work during colegle, you can, no problem.Another thing you could look at is just getting an associates, which shows you went to colegle and received a degree (as opposed to dropping out), which opens you up down the road to continue your education without trying to transfer credits.Ultimately, whatever you decide, you’ll have millions of opportunities pass your way but I personally think that you’ll be more prepared for those opportunities with some higher-education under your belt in addition to all your industry experience.
