Video: JJ Abrams About Myth Making

In this short video, JJ Abrams talks about how to tap into an audience, mixing genres and (without calling it so) myth.

He explains how he doesn’t want to see a movie about war or terrorism but rather something larger than life.

What JJ Abrams means is really how he wants to tell mythological stories and transcend reality while still talking about our reality. He also talks about the influence of  Jaws and Alien on Cloverfield.

With thanks to Louise Lee Mei and Niels Abercrombie.
