“Film as dream, film as music. No form of art goes beyond ordinary consciousness as film does, straight to our emotions, deep into the twilight room of the soul.” Ingmar Berman
You unpredictable creature, shapeshifter, deity and demon.
Knower of all things,seer of truth and unimaginable cruelty. Bringer of hope, destroyer of faith and beacon of light.
In film, a childish magic is unearthed both for actor and audience. I have such a great respect for cinema and how as a tool it is used to benefit humanity. I dream as every actor does to be able to cement a vision into an audiences consciousness whilst meeting you halfway in another realm, a place where actors and audience meet. A place of magic.
The beauty of being an actor is when you feel the vibration of the chords being played, the participation of actor and audience. There is something ethereal about it all.
Film is a wonder, a simple walk in the countryside on a sunny day, a nervous stroll down a dark alley way at night, a first meeting between boy and girl, the knowing glance of someone who truly knows you, the secret no longer hidden and so much more. It is a place to go, to dream, to escape, to feel, to lose yourself.
A place where you get to say ‘You had me at hello’.
