So many conflicts arise when there is a lack of communication. If more people had the ability to view situations from a different perspective, so much could be accomplished. While not my career choice, if I could make a living making films, I would have a chance to reach so many people on an emotional level. Films are designed to sway the viewer; every detail is a conscious decision made in the hopes of connecting with the viewer, giving them the emotion and lead to feel and believe in something. Film making is a passion, a hard mix of mental and physical work. If I could make a living off of it, I would devote myself to making documentaries. I believe everyone has something to say, that everyone has been through experiences worth retelling. Whether it be a feature length film, or small clips, I want to help people express what they need to. Furthermore, I believe that racism, bigotry, sexism, the environmental crisis, and a variety of other world problems could be fixed. If people knew about these problems, hopefully they would be willing to make changes. If they saw how real these issues are, if they were given that perspective on what their inactivity is doing to the world, or how harmful slandering words can be, change is possible. A better world is possible. This cannot happen without a reason, and if the people do not know the reason, or how to help, nothing will get done.
