J J Abrams loves larger-than-life spectacle moments with characters at the centre.

He considers films require more disciplined story telling and prefers the more freeing form of TV.

Get life experience so you have something to tell stories about.

Your ideas are as important as everyone else's. You may not be right but if you feel it, other people will too.

Film-making resources have been democratised. Everyone has access to tools to make professional-grade movies. Make the movie!
