Don't rely on stories to make change. They are only tools you can use to disrubt, reflect, and bridge the world of the should to should be. Manifest the courage to bring forth truth in a story. Stories can only insite action and emotion in the hearts and minds of the people who see them.
They are not a hollier than thou art form, they are simply a medium of cummnication -- like a painting, a poem, a play. They are only a way to communicate.
They are my favorite way to communicate because I believe, they bridge the connection between the abstract concept and the tangible human experience for the viewer. In other words, they are the best at transporting the viewer into another world.
