I like to read and I am a consumer, so I don’t think it takes expertise in film making to have an opinion. The Author with the trailer got lots of opinions and I almost felt sorry for him as the Authors barraged him with advice. I didn’t agree with all of the comments, but kept this to myself. It felt good to be a part of the process and to wish my fellow Author the best of luck. Taking the first step, I have a sense that I belong to something bigger than my own writing.
