Jeremy De Mello
For as long as I can remember, media has played an important role in my life. From childhood shows like Arthur (which I watch to this day) to newer shows such as Human Target and How I Met Your Mother. Activism has also been a large part of my life, as I've been involved politically and am in the process of starting my own ethical and environmentally sustainable clothing business. This past summer I had the opportunity to go to Ecuador and build a school with the organization Free the Children.
Where do movies fit? Movies, and the arts in general, have the power to change perceptions, start trends, affect lives, and inspire multitudes. Movies made smoking cool and culturally acceptable. They have the power to do the opposite. I want to be part of the change.
What is your favourite movie of all time?
V for Vendetta (an amazing action movie definitely worth a look if you like a story to go with your explosions)
What is your favourite genre (type) of movie?
Action. Although I can appreciate quality work of all genres.
If you could be a character in a movie, who would you be and why?
My answer will probably change depending on the day I'm asked but at the moment Chris Gardner from "The Pursuit of Happiness". His willpower would really come in handy. But on the average day, Tony Stark from the "Iron Man" series. Because, c'mon, that suit is awesome.
