All About History
Steven Spielberg started his career by making homemade ‘adventure’ films on his father’s 8mm film camera, and after winning an award in a short-film competition, he got an internship at Universal Studios. Quickly proving himself as an able filmmaker, his big moment came in 1975, when his horror thriller Jaws was released in cinemas. Becoming the highest-grossing film in history at the time, Jaws ushered in the era of New Hollywood with its massively marketed event films. He would spearhead this movement throughout the 1980s, 1990s and the early 21st century.
