Alison Owen on Disney's Saving Mr. Banks
Seldom do you hear a movie producer talk about the personal side of filmmaking. Not only does Alison Owen talk about her life, but goes deep into her experience as a filmmaker. Owen also talks about the the state of studio films and the internet. Excellent read.
“The story unfolding on the screen elicits a powerful response and brain chemicals of well-being and yumminess like Oxytocin floods your body and you float into the realm of the imagination. Oxytocin is sometimes called the ‘love hormone’ or the ‘connection chemical,’ and it is the job of the storyteller to get this stuff flowing round your body and ambushing your responses.”
