EIA Celebrity: Quentin Tarantino
There is something deeper going on with Quentin Tarantino these days. I have enjoyed most of his movies. Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction blew me away. But what had me curious in profiling Tarantino was his latest work. He is an EIA (Empowering Inspiration & Attraction), but this isn’t just about entertaining movies.
The EIA’s core competence is Social Experience. Whenever you want to reach a mass audience, connect people, and cause a movement, you want an EIA. Tarantino has done all of this. He started off as an actor (very common for EIAs to be drawn to acting along with the IAF) but found his calling in writing and directing. One look at his resume and you can’t deny he has empowered, inspired and attracted audiences for years.
Here is just a snippet from his Wikipedia page:
Tarantino’s films have garnered both critical and commercial success. He has received many industry awards, including two Academy Awards, two Golden Globe Awards, two BAFTA Awards and the Palme d’Or, and has been nominated for an Emmy and a Grammy. He was named one of the 100 Most Influential People in the World by Time in 2005. Filmmaker and historian Peter Bogdanovich has called him “the single most influential director of his generation”.
One of his biggest criticisms is Tarantino’s approach to violence. It is common for the EIA to use his or her gift and attempt to “normalize” morally questionable perspectives. We’re not here to debate the use of violence in entertainment. However, if you listen carefully to his take on how he approaches violence, you will see it is all for the sake of social experience. He loves to play the audience like an orchestra. Watch this clip from a recent interview:
This is where things get interesting. Tarantino is now using his Brand Culture of the Social Experience to actually take on social issues on a mass culture scale. This is where the EIA truly finds success and fulfillment. When the gift to empower, inspire and attract is used to bring attention to a social issue, movements are born. History can change. This is where Tarantino could possibly be heading.
Watch this next snippet to hear a fascinating view on what Tarantino cares about and what he feels he is really contributing with his work.
Where Taratino ends up as a celebrity EIA will be very interesting (of course highly entertaining) to watch.
