Welcome to Episode Two of ‘Cinema and the Psyche’. This time out we’re talking about the psyche, and for me, this means the individual. I cover a few important aspects of the individual as they relate to the filmmaker and the audience.
A little conspiratorial at times, but always relevant to the point! With cinema we are messing (for want of a better term) with powers beyond our understanding, and the reason for this is because the nature of the individual is beyond our understanding.
Cinema as an art is a mass of elements we’re tasked – as the filmmaker – with controlling. An almost impossible task, but one we can dedicate ourselves to for a lifetime. As audience members it’s imperative that we get to grips with the power our subconscious holds, and then to understand the power cinema has over our subconscious.
So this is the topic of episode two. Please check it out, and if you enjoy the subject matter, give us a like on Facebook, or follow us on Twitter, put a review on the iTunes store, or just write with some thoughts, questions or feedback.
Lastly, I’d like to mention a great website called Patreon where artists are finding patrons for their work (renaissance style) so they may continue to improve the world as they believe they can, through support from their audience. I have a Patreon page and ask that you check it out and support the work if you can.
