When I was a kid, cinema and movies were an indulgence. When I turned on a movie, everything else that happened that day would defer to what was on screen. It didn't matter "how bad" a movie was because I didn't know what that meant, it was more of a matter of "did I enjoy it?" or "was it boring?" Of course, as an 8 year old, I didn't actually ask myself those questions, but as an adult, I think we often find ourselves inadvertently asking ourselves the same questions—What we were really doing in our heads was giving the film a mental treatment of the its story telling. After all, films are an exposé of our ability to tell stories through moving picture and sound, and there is a fundamental resonance that appeals to our inclination toward a good story, no matter what age—This is something that we always knew growing up, but as adults, we can finally come to an understanding of why story is important.
As an aspiring videographer, think about the countless number of wedding videos you've researched and watched. Many are shot absolutely beautifully, with sweeping sequences, and high production values, and you think to yourself "Wow, this is great, I can only hope to get to this point in my film making abilities for weddings."
