It is all about story. In fact, without great story telling, what else is there…in practically any medium? A film without a story is like a road trip without a map…oh sure, it may be great fun for part of the trip, it may be disaster for the rest. You think James Cameron or J.K. Rowlings start a project without a map…a plan…? In its simplest form, story simply attracts us, leads and compels us down a path, and concludes the journey with a resolution.
At the core of most of us is drive…some force, passion or purpose that propels us toward our destination and motivates us to attain our goals or reach our desired outcome. For some, drive may describe their chosen profession…so its just everyday work day in and day out. For others, its all about passion…doing what is inside them and getting it out in a form that excites and motivates them and their audience.
Everyone sees the world through the lens…literally and figuratively. Your own personal lens is simply a description of the context or framework within which you see things…you may view someone at work differently than you might view them out of that context…like at a party or walking down the sidewalk.
