“Many of us feel that the Film and TV industry has a very important role to play and need to take a greater responsibility for the influence that media carry a direct impact on hearts and minds.
Positive role models and decent characters - strong story-driven content is overshadowed by effects, action and bad language. My hope is to encourage more filmmakers to make commercially viable films that hold onto core values and morality.
Many of us are left uninspired by the raft of films released these days and it’s high time we promote the positive and not the negative. Real heroes and heroines, not just guys and girls with guns who can kick, Not just boys and girls with superficial values but real men and women of integrity and substance.
Entertainment can be so much more given the right conditions to nurture and develop. Together we can build a better legacy for our children.”
