Hello you, and welcome to my new blog!
What will I be talking about?
If you know me, I guess this won't be much of a surprise, but: CINEMA!
If you are as passionate about films as I am, and you want to know more about the art behind them, this will be the place. We will analyse shots, characters, and screenplays, and learn from the biggest names out there. It's all about being film geeks together :-)
In the book "Godard On Godard" by Jean-Luc Godard (1968), I came across a line that made me think:
"We have indeed forgotten how to see."
I couldn't agree more. The world is faster than ever, and we are rarely allowed to slow down and just see. What I hope to achieve with this humble project, besides sharing my knowledge and passion, is to help you learn to observe - especially if you gave up art at some point in life claiming not to have an eye for it.
I believe once you learn to pay attention, whether it is to a movie, a painting, a photograph, a landscape, or your lover's face, those new little details that before were invisible to you will definitely change the game. You can find the inspiration you were looking for, you can start appreciating something that you have always given for granted, you can turn something ordinary into something special, you can start understanding what you have always considered out of your reach.
The way you will decide to use your new eyes is only up to you but, if you feel stuck and need a little push, I hope this will help you take the first step in the right direction.
Hope to see you around for the next posts!
