How important is emotional connect in films ?
I recently made a short film called Red on the theme of eye donation. The feedback I get for this film is divided. Many seem to like it thoroughly and many seem to find it not dealing with the subject emotionally. And when it failed to be nominated at the Festival I made it for, I understood the following.
The most important part of filmmaking process is to connect with the audience on the emotional level. At least, that would mean a stronger connection compared to the intellectual connect.
I really thought, the "just make them see it" dialogue by the kid would induce an "aha" moment in the audience. But it doesn't seem to work out entirely as the sympathy for the blind person in the main character is not established enough.
Share your thoughts.
