The Western marked a new era in the history of cinema, as it has also done at Bmovie, a film school in Alicante.

THE WESTERN

It’s a typical genre of American cinema set in the Old West, born in 1903 with the release of ‘The Great Train Robbery’. That date and film marked the beginning of a new era in the history of cinema, but when we think of Westerns, we think of John Ford, a director who dedicated his life to the genre. That’s why many young talents come to Bmovie to learn and master this world, much like Mr. Ford did in his time. Some important films include:

  • La diligencia, 1939
  • The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, 1962
  • For a Few Dollars More, 1965
  • Río Bravo, 1959

How do we experience the Western at Bmovie? On February 12th, the acting and filmmaking students put on their boots and hats to shoot a commercial in the Wild West! How was it? In the morning, the students were greeted by a cowboy at the school gate. They sat down, and the teachers explained what they would be doing that day. There was a relaxed atmosphere, and as always, jokes were abundant.

The boys went through makeup and wardrobe to become authentic cowboys. With hats in hand and eager to explore the Wild West, Bmovie students faced the greatest duel ever feared by every cowboy—acting in front of the camera! After showcasing their skills with the revolver, the students from the film school in Alicante rode off home. But the cowboy experience doesn’t end there. At some point in this journey, the boys and girls of filmmaking and acting will venture into the adventure of discovering Europe’s largest Western set.
