Factual and Fictional Film is my favorite medium, it’s where I creatively and professionally draw a person into their safe space, breaking down barriers to reveal the person inside and the significance of their story or character, giving inspiration and meaning to their journey and validating their place in the world.
My focus is People, Place, and Purpose and my skill as a storyteller in film comes from a career spanning over 30 years in the world of personal development and a passion for social change, combined with an extensive study on the theory of cinema/film, I have applied this body of knowledge in becoming an expert in the field of archetypes, narrative, and character development. I love creating new worlds for an audience to experience, by uncovering candid emotions that ignite our hunger for real humanity, giving the viewer an encounter that induces a healthy longing.
I love these words from Natalie Portman “As an actor, your job is to imagine someone else’s life. That is what we do. We say I wonder what that person feels and thinks. And that’s the experience in a movie theatre. We’re sharing this social experience with other people for 2 hours, caring about someone else’s life. It’s the act of empathy.”
And that’s why I love the power of the cinema… it provides an amazing space, where we can have a conscious evolutionary experience together. – Elizabeth Ellames
