If I were to do films, then this is what they'd be like.
Heavy use of animal imagery.
Will feature ensemble casts ranging from 8 to 12 in number.
Protagonists will be mostly female, but it wouldn't hurt to have male protagonists.
Relationships between characters will be as realistic, as I can possibly make them to be.
If I'm going to have romance, than it should be at a slow pace, and it shouldn't be automatic.
Ensemble casts; 8 or more characters per film.
Will put more stock into their personalities, rather than who they are.
Actors must really give it their all, when they play and/or voice their characters.
PG to R Themes without any explicit visuals or graphic imagery, but they're heavily implied.
Characters are always aware of the 4th wall and will show this at random intervals.
Villains won't always be redeemable, but they'll have some humanity to them, despite being absolute filth for the majority of the film.
A majority of the (human) villains in my films, will be average in appearance to help them blend in with normal people, and to mask their evil intent from the protagonist(s) and other characters.
Even if the film is set in a fantasy setting, the creatures will be treated as just as mundane as animals in the real world.
Like Mad Max, the protagonist(s) will not be invulnerable to realistic, if not permanent, injuries, and these injuries may last throughout the rest of the story arc.
Film scores will mostly be drum, piano, and guitar-based.
Center on topics most don't really want to tap into, like, for example, fatalism, and the sexual objectification of men and women.
Action scenes will have little-to-no dialogue.
Lighting depends on the type of scene it is being used.
Colors are used to distinguish a character's personality, like Beijing Opera Masks.
Will use songs that either aren't popular in the mainstream media or haven't been used as much, as in other films.
Aliens will look more like this (link) than this (link)
Much like my brother, I'm not particular with who should act in my movies, and wouldn't mind casting friends or even family members.
