“Reel Wisdom” Lessons From 40 Films

“Reel Wisdom” Lessons From 40 Films

Yoda from the Star Wars seriesDerek Stettler collected some words of wisdom from 40 films, weaving them into a virtual advice column using video as the medium.

“In creating this video, I wanted to focus on a few key themes, while featuring as many films as I could,” he wrote on YouTube.

Reel Wisdom features an array of film genres, from action/adventure and sci-fi, to drama and animation, in order to show how all types of film have something important to say.


“There are a lot of Star Wars lines, I know,” he admitted. “Mainly because I grew up watching Star Wars, and I love all the great lessons found in the series.”

If you know of a film clip that should have been used, send Derek a message on his YouTube channel and maybe he’ll include them in Reel Wisdom: Part 2.
