Come view the premier of The Note , and many other films at this year's Pathways to Excellence showcase.
My inspiration for this movie came from several things in my life. The first is a TV show I used to watch called Pretty Little Liars. In the show, there is an unknown enemy who sends threatening messages and does dangerous things to four girls. My movie is very similar to that, but it is more realistic because I wanted to show that events like these can occur in real life. I wanted to use symbolism and metaphors in my movie to prove how quickly life can change. I chose to make my movie silent and black and white because it makes the movie eerie and adds more drama and suspicion to make the movie more interesting and enjoyable to the viewer. Overall, my movie was inspired by real life things that could have happened, but no one told about.
