To try and make a comedy film, we need to have many backup ideas and techniques, therefore to choose one specific movie that inspired our process and our final film is really hard. I would say that the comedy film that I was inspired by the most is; Superbad. Although the idea of the movie is not the same as the one in ur movie, there are similar concepts that can relate to our film. Basically Superbad, is a film of a group of friends that try to be the "cool guys" of the school, and they do everything to be this types of guys. They end up making a huge party to try and achieve their goal. In our movie, the two main characters of the film, are really close friends and they work together to reach a single goal, call the attention of Amanda (a rich lady). Sometimes, in Superbad the protagonists have stupid ideas, that at the end this what makes the movie funny. In this case this example has a direct link with our movie as Mike and Michael (the protagonists) have weird ideas to try and get Amanda, and as well this makes the movie a comedy.
In terms of soundtrack, both movies soundtracks are impactant. Our movie is full of different songs to represent the moment shown in the movie, and in the other hand, in Superbad, it happens the same, for each important scene in the movie where the director wants to represent something in particular, music is played, to accompany the shots. In terms of the shots, and camera angles both films have plenty of camera angles, to show different perspectives of the scene. Finally, both movies are characterized to have bright colors alongside the movie. Bright and happy colors oftenly represent the comedy genre.
All in all the movie Superbad, doesn't have the same idea as our movie, Love Calypso. But, it does have a full variety of different aspects that helped me (as a director) to include more ideas and shots to our movie, so it can be categorized as a comedy film.
