Prolific writer, producer, and show creator, Michael Warren, helped shape some of the most influential television programming of a generation (Family Matters, Two of a Kind, Step by Step, Perfect Strangers, Happy Days, etc.).
However, like all Two Handed Warriors, Michael’s journey toward reimagining faith and culture wasn’t accomplished alone.
I asked Michael: “Who are writers, artists, filmmakers, poets, musicians, films, books, plays, TV shows, or any other cultural artifact who have deeply influenced you and will always stick with you.”
Then I only gave him fifteen minutes to complete his list, just so we cold get it “unedited.” (Part of an ongoing series of the “Fab 15” influencers who influenced the influencers of culture.)
Here is Michael’s list of greatest influences in his own life.
Ian Thomas, The Saving Life of Christ
David Lean’s Films (All of them!)
Star Wars (because it showed me the impact a single film could have on changing people’s worldview.)
What’s on your “Fab 15″ list?
Caveat: Your list must be comprised of culural artifacts readers woud have access to, so you can’t include your Mom, or some other leader who had a personal impact on you.
Make your list in no more than fifteen minutes and send it to us!
