They are a part of who I am

Why do I love media?
When I think about why I love media, my thoughts jump straight to my love for films.
I love films, because they’ve always given me a place where I could feel safe, as no matter what time or place in my life, films have always been there for me. When I was happy, films would make me imagine worlds and things I never thought were possible, where people could truly be anything they want to be. They inspired me to believe, that one day, I’ll be able to create something just as magical, that could make others feel the same way cinema makes me feel. They make me feel like I finally have a place where I belong. A place where I can be myself.
When I was feeling down, they would not only make me forget where I was, but who I was. They would take me to a whole new world, where everything was possible and nothing could stop my dreams. That is the effect media has on me, and I want to make others feel the same, because that’s what a great film does. A great film celebrates everything good and bad about life. Whenever I watch a film, I am reminded of why I love life, why I love waking up in the morning, and why I dream of creating something great

I love media and especially film, because they are a part of who I am. They are a part of my life and I don’t know where I’d be without them.
