Imagine a room full of animated people all talking at once.
“It’s all about the script.”
“No way, it’s all about the acting.”
“Are you kidding? The director is the vision. Everyone knows it’s the director’s baby.”
“Without the sound you don’t have a film.”
“Oh, yeah. Try to do it without an editor.”
What a cacophony of voices, each claiming dominance. And yet, once the cameras roll, it all comes together to create something wonderful. Movies are truly a group effort. So many individuals coming together for one purpose – to put together a work of art.
If you think about it, watching movies is also something enjoyed more with others than alone. There’s a special feeling you get when the lights go out and the audience gets quiet. That moment when we all break out in laughter or share a sense of awe can be electric.
So, whether you’re at the local cinema or home for family movie night, pop up the popcorn, get comfy in your seat and enjoy the show.
