What is Cinema?

It's not often that I sit down in front of a camera but in this video I talk about the difference between movies, film, and cinema.  In summary, I believe the fundamental difference between something that is cinema or not is the degree to which our perspective is shifted as a result of watching a ...

CINEMA — CARTOGRAPHY OF THE HUMAN CONDITION

As a Writer I strive to find meaning in the moments between the words—there is always more meaning in these moments. This is important because in the end I am a human being just trying to find his own way in life and all of this helps me make sense of it all. The opening ...

A Thousand Moments Later—A Voiceover

Below is a working document for the voice-over of my first feature film, A Thousand Moments Later. But note that the following may not in any way reflect the final cut of the voice-over in the movie. It is more of a way for me to write and create and set a scene for the actor ...

Cinema and Fineart Photography

So I've been thinking about this over the past few days: Do Cinema and fineart photography have anything in common? Can stories of human potential be rendered in the still frame as much as it can in the moving ...

Soul Searching

I heard someone recently use the phrase, "it was a period of 'soul searching' in my life." It struck me then....right then, that my entire life seems to have been a period of "soul searching." Why?
