Quote from: wilder on December 15, 2014, 09:10:21 PMLately I've been noticing how few recent movies are set in our present-day, in real life (as much as movie realities can be 'real'). There seems to be a trend among directors of doing period projects, and I'm not sure if that's just their natural inclination and they're choosing them because of the opportunity for world creation period pieces have -- maybe a way to give a movie production value in contrast to the giant superhero, fantasy, and sci-fi stuff being made, or if it's because modern communication technologies have destroyed so many of the logistical storytelling techniques that used to be possible, or that many directors don't find the modern day reality interesting to depict? Or is it a pure economic consideration, no one wants to fund them?
