…people want to explore, go places where they can adventure. It is the job of the artist, copywriter, or movie director to take them there.
One of the most utilized and little recognized mechanisms to move a person from one conscious state of mind to another is a “portal.” A portal is a doorway, an entrance, an opening in which you are one side looking through to another. Your subconscious mind says, “Let’s go there.”
Movie directors have been using portals since movies were in diapers. Early movie directors used portals in their movies subconsciously (raw talent) while later directors use them consciously (a learned skill).
Here are my top five movie portals and the reasons why…
Back to the Future ($210 million)
Rambo: First Blood Part II ($150 million)
Rocky IV ($127 million)
The Color Purple ($94 million)
Out of Africa ($87 million)
