They reflect a world just beyond the one we live in–real and unreal at the same time. A movie can transport us to other times and places…break our hearts or make us laugh out loud. They are a wonderful example of what can be accomplished with collaborative effort.
Picture and sound meld and become more than the sum of their parts. We’ve all felt emotions being elicited by images but that can be greatly enhanced by music. Talkies changed the world, but even before people were talking on screen the music was adding its own flavors.
When we head to the cinema, we have expectations. We want to be entertained, uplifted, amused. Sometimes we need a good cry. Or, maybe we’re looking to have our minds blown with some out-of-the-box ideas. No matter what motivates us, it’s worth consideration that the film began as someone’s dream. They are taking us on their journey and that can be quite a ride.
