As an avid lover of cinema, I have always looked up to the figures most critically and commercially successful in the business. Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese, Quentin Tarantino, Paul Thomas Anderson, and Ridley Scott have all changed the face of the industry through artful feats of great insight, power, innovation, entertainment, and lasting influence. Films produced by men such as these have defined many generations of pop culture and reflected most qualities back to society, an impact I would work to achieve.
Achieving success as a filmmaker usually begins with childhood curiosity. Curiosity turns to hobby which, in turn, develops into a deep understanding of the art. My ambitions would drive me to study filmmaking at prestigious film schools and take on many student projects to gain experience alongside knowledge. After film school, rather than head straight to Hollywood, I would dabble in the independent market, producing, writing, directing, editing, and acting in my own low-budget works to build up a resume worthy of red carpet admittance. Beyond that path, my future prospects would be anything but unattainable.
I have always believed that storytelling and imagination foster much greater creations than art pieces to be admired and collected. Rather, these traits always lead to innovation and social advancement, the development of moral fiber and ethical institutions. As a humanitarian effort, the creative worth of the movies carry the potential to reign in a better world more capable of sustaining peace and prosperity.
