notes from an aspiring filmmaker

We are all telling this story-the narrative. In between the action lies introspection. These moments-if captured with the lens is what connects the character to the audience. Its what we normally don’t see that needs the light (exposing), and that needs to be brought out in the characters reflection-which is the outside world; So both sides of the mirror are shown interacting with each other. As the now moment unfolds it becomes a spinoff from the overall theme…each moment continues to unfold the story, but the character is unaware (seemingly) of just what their whole story is. The characters internal interaction between desire and fear is what drives the plot forward-leading the story to unfold in unpredictable ways. The complete myriad of emotions of the character need to be felt in order for resolve to be met; if the mundane, the transition between Actions can be highlighted, it keeps the audience engaged so that no frame is wasted-it is essential, and cannot be taken away. I love a character that is necessary for the unfoldment of the story-even better if the audience has mixed feelings as to whether they like them or not. I realize as I experience life that I too am telling my own story of my own unfoldment-seemingly unaware, however pockets of familiarity and synchronicity follow me down my path- leading me to believe that I have written this life for myself. Each moment is moving the story forward-even if I am still, something within me is moving. And realizing that reality is but an illusion- a perceptual card trick..I keep trying to fool myself with. It is NOT the outside that is unfolding-but me. My internal focus is what I experience..It is what the light within myself chooses to capture and play before me. BLINK. I am the only one here.
