Hope is the faith that he Mahaloness will carry you through no matter what. The flow is to be ridden, similar to surfing, it requires skill, balance, and concentration, the moment you lose focus you fall, and even when you fall you fall and get back up unless all hope is lost and that seems hopeless to me. Hope is as simple as a sparkle in the eye, holding the head up high and seeing it, being in rhythm with the flow so that when the next wave comes you are prepared to catch it, and ride it with style, keeping fear at bay and believing that you have what it takes to see it through, keep seeing it through, moving forward, making adjustments along the way that you learn from previous attempts. Practice. Discipline. Integrity. Willingness. Mahaloness.

A painting that explores the world of acting, seen here a French actress named Melanie Doutey, with a glimmer of hope in her eye, yet working in an industry filled with hopeless drama, and politics, and everything that is the farthest thing from glamorous. If you have worked on a film set you know what I am saying. Also the fact that she is a woman working in often male centric arena, all within the business of cinema and the need to see returns on the investment, seems to me that in today’s day and age that filmmaking, or digital film making is in a phase where good stories may be told cinematically for very little in the way of costs, which perhaps makes for resourceful strategy, and a chance for all inspiring filmmakers to make a great movie without the big costs, although I also feel that if someone made a movie using really old film gear that this would be something that stands out amongst all the digital computer aided stuff thats being made by robots, at any rate that is my hope, we shall see what happens.
