A simple description would be a group of people who come together. A group of people who have a passion for something that not too many people possess. Some cast members fall off the wagon and some make it to see the finished product. The director literally sacrifices everything to make the production come to life, and yes, at times he or she is afraid because no one knows how it’s going to end. They can only assume. Everyone goes through the motions with some actors never actually feeling good enough. Some people take it seriously and some don’t. Some people have fun on set and some lose it. I guess every acting thrill has its place in time. Some performances are done in the heart of the city while others are performed in front of small crowds. Some movies make it to the big screen while others make it to a small restaurant showcase. Why someone would want to deal with the real drama that comes along with show biz is the question because even on a small stage there’s problems. Whatever the case may be even if you don’t like the production take a second look at the finished product. Give it time, because even a flop finds its place in history. Imagine a man peeking through a wooden box playing back film with no sound. My friend, it’s art, it’s passion and in the end it’s just a group of people playing in front of the camera for anyone who stumbles across their production to see.
Ironically, the first films were in black and white.
Color came with time.
It’s a complicated process.
