Filmmaking is story and strategy, visual and visceral.
Filmmaking is immersive.
There's no end to what can be learned and explored as a creator.
There's no medium more emotionally gripping for an audience.
Filmmaking is collaborative.
We're not made for ivory towers.
We thrive within community.
It's easy to flaunt success but it takes both humility and courage to be honest about our many small failures along the way.
Big dreams are never accomplished until they're started. It's that first step that can be the hardest.
Every filmmaker who believes they can learn, grow, and change the world through story is an encouragement to me as I so easily forget.
