(I was only 2 when the first one came out... the only one I got to see in the theater was Jedi). My father also had a Super 8 camera and I used to enjoy shooting with that. The other moment I remember was watching The Shawshank Redeption when it came out during High School and over the credits I remember thinking... "Not THAT is why I want to make movies". How about you? What sparked your interest? What sustained it? What confirmed it?
