The Start of a Journey and the start of a Blog.
I am off to the Cannes Film Festival in search of the man that ignited my passion and dreams through his movies. When I was in the 5th grade I had the opportunity to give a presentation on any historical figure, and at this particular time in my life had fallen in love with Jurassic Park, Indiana Jones, and Back to the Future. In my adolescent 5th grade mind I had no concern of who was responsible for the making of these classics, but my mother informed me that the same man made all of these movies, so naturally I grew fond of this man and his work and decided to do my 5th grade project on him. His name was Steven Spielberg. Within my research of Steven Spielberg I found myself completely identifying with him, whether it be his family life, how he spends his free time, or his willingness to make things happen. This man instantly became a hero for me and from that point on I wanted to be a movie director.
Today is May 12th, the day that I will embark on my journey to Cannes, France coincidentally Steven Spielberg is the Director of the Grand Jury of Cannes this year. This blog is the adventures and times of my search for Spielberg, the man who helped develop the passion and dreams that I have today. It is no guarantee that I will meet the man, but it is certain that I will have stories to tell. May this become a place for the many stories that I will gain over the next few weeks and maybe even the next few years while Seeking Spielberg.
