The Birth of an Idea
It is said that the human gift is the conscious mind and with it the ability to dream or imagine possibilities into existence. I believe there is no greater proof of this gift than film making. I am not saying that the great achievements in other fields are not just as important, but film making allows the imagination complete freewill to go anywhere, anytime and anyway it can. It allows the impossible to be possible in relatively short amount of time. We don't need aerodynamics to fly, a time machine to fight dragons or liner explanations to help suspend our disbelief. Films "Are" because we "Think" them into being. They touch us on such a subconscious level that we can defy the liner path and move in a multitude of directions all at the same time. Films inspire our hopes, fears and dreams and lead us to our possibility or our destruction all in the safety of our mind. It is the process of film making that reminds us that it only takes one person to dream but it takes a whole community to bring that dream into reality.
