Movies have a way of digging into our lives more than we often realize, often changing our hearts, softening our anger, portraying our frustrations in life on the screen or just brightening our day with some light entertainment. Whatever the reason we have for watching movies, there are just as many reasons for those who want to create them. It is more than a passion, more than a desire - there is a need, a calling to tell stories, fictional or true, that can't be denied.
It doesn't matter how long the film is, what equipment was used to create it or how much the experience the actors have had, it can still be an amazing piece of work that entertains you or possibly changes your life forever. With the various online and digital formats available in today's society, so many different types of stories are literally at the fingertips of humanity.
Films, movies, motion pictures, moving images, flicks, flicker shows - whatever you choose to call them, the stories held within this medium hold great power. Whether it is the intention of the filmmakers to change lives or just to entertain, the power within is still the same.
