revoked its reaffirmation of profit and power, questioned our needs, allowed
long pauses . . .

Stand fast! And keep your childishness.
Read all the pendant's creeds and strictures,
but don't believe in anything

" Every good Book should be enteraining. A good book will be more; it must not be less. Entertainment... is like a qualifying examination. If a fiction can't provide even that, we may be excused from inquiry into its higher qualities."
-Lewis (Experiment in Criticism)

"Film and TV are 2 of the most powerful storytelling tools of our time. Powerful because there is something traditional, magical and artistic about them. Traditional because we use long established elements of storytelling. Magical because we employ the most advanced technological tools to create audio-visual tricks, artistic because we get to express ourselves while sharing our ideas, dreams, and stories."
-Gokham Ozaysin
