Film is not about the story one tells, but rather the manner in which that story is told. Most films only rely on the plot to progress and to move the story forward. This leaves all the other aspects of a film to remain unchanged. However, a truly cohesive film is one in which all the aspects of a film (plot, cinematography, editing, sound, music) progress together in the same direction. By having all the aspects compliment each other and change together, the impact of a film on an audience is, in turn, much greater. With my film, Common Tongue, I developed a progression for each aspect to follow throughout the course of the film. As a result, no aspect of the film remains static and the impact on the viewer is more everlasting.
