The blog, Intrinsic Lifestyle Productions, currently, (this could change under the Trump administration), has the right to write pretty much anything and share it with the world.
Freedom of speech! Hell yes!
I’d like take this opportunity to share a reflection.
As an independent female documentary filmmaker, I’m an educator of sorts. Through the use of sounds and images in digital film, I facilitate a person’s learning by appealing to their visual as well as auditory perception. In my humble and (admittedly) inexperienced opinion, the tricky part about documentary filmmaking is telling a great story without being gruesome, pedantic or sappy—and enabling viewers to reach their own conclusions. At least that’s important in my filmmaking. One final note. I think it’s good to know what you want an audience to leave your film thinking, stated in five words or less. (This last concept comes from an exhibit design class for museums at John F. Kennedy University. Who knew that making a film and planning an exhibit have a lot of things in common? But that’s a topic for another post.)
