"High Concept" Entertainment

“High Concept” Exercise


I chose to use the character/person of Tom Hanks (typewriter enthusiast and actor) for this exercise because his appreciation for typewriters partially influenced my decision to go in that direction for my Career discourse. Additionally, Tom Hanks is a co-lead in the film “You’ve Got Mail”, which I reference in the final portion of my Career discourse. I made my one-liner caption “is it a typewriter, or is it love?” because of my pre-established association with Tom Hanks as an actor in the romantic genre. In addition to this, I also stated that I tend to romanticize the act of writing and therefore view antique typewriters with rose colored glasses. The mood of my Career discourse similarly captures a love for the modes of writing as a portion of the evolution of these modes is mapped out in the evolution of the typewriter.
