(specifically in movies)
When listening to speeches they inspire me and boost my creative mind so i'm able to come up with ideas easier or faster.
They also give me confidence to do the things I often don't like doing or aren't looking forward to, for example during the first week of school for each year i'd often find myself listening to speeches on Youtube.
I never intentionally search for them but always end up on them by clicking through other videos like i'm subconsciously searching for them.
When asked what Inspiration feel like?
"It’s a sudden dryness in my throat and a catch in my breath. This feeling stays with me until I relent and seek out meaning within the object of my curiosity. Once I dig deep enough, peeling through the layers until I find that perfect spark of pure inspiration. Once I find it, I cradle it and nurture it into explaining itself to me fully. Then, once the story enfolds within the confines of my mind, I type up the synopsis and store it away. To save the perfect spark of imagination for a later time when I am able to fully develop it."
To me Inspiration feels like a rush of energy that makes your hands twitch, the hair on your arms raise and your pupils dilate. When I feel inspiration I have to write down the idea because where i'm so forgetful i will forget it. However when inspiration is needed but absent it can be one of the most frustrating things i know, spent twiddling a pen whilst sitting slack in a chair getting distracted by random videos.
Some of the ones I listen to the most include the speech from "The Great Dictator" with Charlie Chaplin and "That's how winning is done" with Sylvester Stallone.
Ludwig Göransson , the composer for Creed, listened the soundtrack for Rocky and noticed one of the things the old composer done was combined old style music and new style music using both an orchestra and choir coupled with guitar solos and disco drums. Göransson wanted to commemorate the old soundtrack so experimented with his new style of music.
The composer also commemorated the Balboa films by taking the iconic theme and laying over the rapper Future to give the motivational sound an update whilst respecting its predecessors.
In the Creed video before of Micheal B. Jordan there is the soundtrack which is reminiscent of the Balboa films but later on in the soundtrack the composer lays sounds of dirt bikes and a 45 second rap verse which doesn't clash with the Orchestra but works with it.
The soundtrack which accentuates the line "one step at a time, one punch at a time, one round at a time!" is called "I fight, you fight" by Ludwig Göransson with the title reflecting Creeds boxing fight as well as Balboas fight with cancer.
Music generally help speeches, they take a shortcut to our emotions and can unlock them faster and more reliably than words.
This would be Chaplin's first speaking role which would put down the tramp a role which had created his career and now was a part of Chaplin himself, he was the tramp and the tramp was him.
Even before shooting began, The Great Dictator had enraged German and British diplomats posted in the United States as Chaplin wages a war with Hitler on the Silver screen.
In the autumn of 1938, when the Munich Agreement was being signed in Europe, Charles Chapin was putting the finishing touches to the first draft of a script written in the greatest secrecy. Rumour had it that the creator of the Tramp had decided to make his first talking film. Moreover, it was said that he would be playing the part of a character inspired by Adolf Hitler.
The speech has been used in two recent songs by different artists both with a different atmosphere, one gives the feeling of being trapped and to break free and the other encourages that you are limitless and to use that freedom.
