How delightful it was to see that my fellow bloggers enjoy film. It’s been almost twenty years now that me carrier is devoted to this media. Some say it’s an art but who works with it knows better. We can direct art because we direct writing and photography and fashion and architecture and music and on an on. That doesn’t makes us artists. Writers are artist and photographers are artists… we are the first lucky witnesses of those arts growing together in a media that can blend all those into one final result. Therefore we are craft men capable of taking writing from paper and putting it on screen with the help of all the arts that collaborate in cinema. Of course i’m talking about the first main idea of film. Autheurs are real artists and their work transcend direction. Fellini would be Fellini using other photographers and even without Nino Rota. Those write and direct and do almost everything they can in their films because they use all details in storytelling to be them selves as much as they can in front of the audience. In other hand Spielbergs are directors and what they do it’s not called art. That’s not less it’s just differente. Schindler’s list is a work of art? No. It is great filmmaking? Yes. The only thing it means is that moviemaking opens a window for artists but it was not designed as art. It’s an entertaining media. And a really powerful one. Those two hours in the dark theatre can take us many places and make our minds wonder in many different worlds and realities. I really love this craft since i was a child. Since Star Wars was playing and all i wanted to do is to be far away from this universe. That’s the power that always moved me to the movies. Great week to you guys!
