The Power To Stir Another Human Being’s Emotions

Power to stir emotions

The power to stir another human being’s emotions is so appealing to the artist’s personality. I think that variable is certainly one of the core motivating factors of any artist whose work is for public consumption.

I know that one of the great attractions to making films from my perspective is the opportunity to hold an audience in my hand (metaphorically) and alternate between a range of emotions from laughter to fear to joy to sorrow and back again. That is the kind of power that I crave.

I have always felt pride in the fact that the right piece of music or film or television show or even the right commercial can make me experience it through the fish-eyed lens of tear-stained eyes.

I treasure that quality within myself because deep inside it bonds me to the artist who was able to accomplish that and makes me feel great joy that their artistry was so powerful, moving and persuasive as to trigger my emotions.

Itzhak Perlman is so incredibly talented and his performances are truly breathtaking. My note for this Saturday is to share that great artistry must always be supported by society because artists with real power are most able to tap into our deepest emotions and allow us a tender moment of being human.

Wishing you a tremendous day. Step out of your shell and enjoy the sunshine. The sunrise at the beach this morning was magnificent?

The thing is that I always consider myself lucky that I can actually cry listening to some music. – Itzhak Perlman

When I was 5 years old, I discovered that the lemon tree in the backyard + dixie cups + water and sugar and I was in business. I have been hooked on that ever since. In 1979, I borrowed $14,000 to create a brand new product... photographic greeting cards with no text on the inside, called Paradise Photography. That was the start of The Illusion Factory. Since then, The Illusion Factory has been entrusted by all of the major studios and broadcasters with the advertising and marketing of over $7 billion in filmed, live, broadcast, gaming, AR, VR and regulated gaming forms of entertainment, generating more than $100 Billion in revenue and 265 awards for creativity and technology for our clients. When I took a break from film school at UCLA to move to Hawaii, my mother did not lecture me. Instead, she took 150 of her favorite aphorisms and in her beautiful calligraphy, wrote them artistically throughout a blank journal. That is the origin of the Lessons from the Mountain series. Since then, on my journeys to the top of a mountain to watch the sunrise, I have spent countless hours contemplating words of wisdom from the sages of all races, genders and political persuasions, constantly accumulating the thoughts to guide me on my life path. I hope you enjoy my books. Please let me know your thoughts, as I highly value your feedback!
