In 1895 when Louis and Auguste Lumiere invented the Cinematographe they changed the world (The History of Movie Cameras:Part 1). Slowly over time motion films changed not only America but also the world. Film captured Vietnam and brought the brutality into our homes. Movies such as Back to the Future, Top Gun, and Titanic become legendary in their own rights for they showed the progression of cinema and how it moves us. Movies, television, broadcasts, Youtube, and even Vine are all forms of showering the world with information and entertainment. The twenty-first century has given us ripe opportunities to showcase our triumphs, and our hardships. It has always been my dream to showcase the world. As a child I was found behind the camera taping family events instead of being the center of them. If I could do what I loved I would take my video camera and capture the world in its entirety. Our environment is changing and needless to say it’s not for the better. In other words I would like to travel the world and document the worlds wonders from Mount Fuji to the Great Pyramids of Giza. I wish to not only the wonders themselves but also the people who inhabit the areas around them. I have always wondered what the future humans will think of us if they do not know what it was really like. That has always been a fascination of mine. Motion pictures enter a person through the gateway of their eyes and capture their hearts. Whether we’re crying over Jake from Titanic, or cheering on Forestt Gump as he keeps running no matter the fact or fiction as humans we are entwined with cinema, and I hope to one day make it possible for everyone to experience parts of the world from their very couch. That is my dream.
