Resources for the Filmmaker & Author
As Filmmakers and authors, bringing in the changes that will help heal the planet and get humanity on a better path, the first thing we need to do is raise our own awareness. The extra bonus becoming conscious will be rewarding on so many levels in ways we can't even imagine for our own lives. We all have gifts in different departments, I want to encourage you to research, brainstorm and figure out what you have to bring to the table. Also, how can you share the information people need to know in your regular stories or in stories specifically designed to raise awareness? In the processes of sharing this knowledge you can also share the consequences of the ignorant decisions we are making or share the solution by showing conscious actions. You don't always need to make it apparent that you are making a point, it can just be a secondary action taken, such as the example with a character bringing their own mug to the coffee shop.
Below are a couple documentaries and books to get the ball rolling with raising our own consciousness. There are many others. They can be used as wonderful resources for getting ideas for the seeds of understanding you can plant into your narrative fiction films. Though the films below are documentaries, the idea is to spread awareness by integrating it into all genres therefore reaching the masses in time to create real change.
