Filmmaking: Just a bigger sandbox

In the immortal words of Doctor Who, “There’s no point in being grown up if you can’t be childish sometimes.” That, I think, is one of the greatest allures of film making. It’s Lincoln Logs on steroids. It’s like all the mighty wars that raged in that backyard dirt pile, fought with little plastic soldiers and using pebbles as mortar rounds. As filmmakers, we’re still creating make-believe worlds, just with bigger budgets, bigger kids, and bigger toys.
