I'm John Butler, and I study film at a small liberal arts university in Tennessee. I'm an aspiring writer-director, though my love of cinematography may eventually alter my goals. I'm open to a lot--because there is a lot I love to do.
I see film as the ultimate art because it is the combination of all of them--the written word, drama, choreography, photography, and so on. This view informs my enjoyment of so many different aspects of filmmaking, though I will admit freely that the core of all my interests may well be a desire to tell stories.
I want to tell stories. All kinds of them--dramas, comedies, vague, experimental stories, true ones even. I want to tell stories that touch hearts and tickle funny bones. In short, I want to fondle people with movies.
