Telling a story well as a film is not easy. And yet more and more people want to try and be storytellers. Some feel the need to express the personal experience of scars: pain, adventure, life detours, wonder, feelings. Others do it for work.
Pull Back to Reveal: Story is the mega-trend, it is everybody’s business.
We are defined by our vision, our will and the hard choices we need to make in the face of conflict. When a person doesn’t stop trying, their vulnerability is exposed. Sooner or later meaningful connections develop, and story grows in the shared space of relationships.
To me a story well told, and worth telling, is, simple and smart. By “smart ” I mean a story with a cinematic DNA, with the energy to connect the feeble light of our fragile optimism with the dark shadows of human nature.
At Cinemahead many projects are DIY style, home-made or personal. Are you are on a storytelling path? What are you working on? Where do you plan to go with it?
Let it grow.
