We all have our boundaries. Personally, as much as I'd like to say that I can fully express myself in my day-to-day life, I can't. I'm sure most people feel misunderstood to at least some degree, causing them to find some type of coping mechanism. Film happens to be my coping mechanism.
Have you ever seen a movie or TV show that depicts a character who struggles with communication use a sock puppet to get his or her point across? That third party technique is allowing the character to express themselves more freely because the message isn't coming directly from their mouth.
As funny as this sounds - my camera is my sock puppet!
Because of film I can reach anyone. I can make someones day better with a laugh or I can show somebody that they aren't alone in their struggle. This is what I cherish most about "Film Life". It allows me to express my true self and make the positive impact the world needs.
