Welcome to Hollywood Journal — the soul of the biz.
Hollywood Journal is about the power of entertainment to inspire us, to change our lives, to shape our world. It is about the emotional and spiritual journeys that the people who create entertainment undertake, and about the way those journeys — through movies, television, theatre, books, music and games — affect the lives of their audiences.
The true power of Hollywood is not fame or money, box office or celebrity, but its ability to shape our perception of the world, to sharpen our empathy, to broaden our understanding, to bend our hearts and open our minds.
When Napoleon said, “Imagination rules the world,” he was speaking of the power stories have to determine who, what and how we love, what we fear and what matters to us most.
Hollywood Journal is where the people who dream up these stories — writers, directors, actors, musicians, artists, producers, story creators of all sorts – reveal the insights, experiences, inner resources and outer struggles that shaped their works and their lives. In Hollywood Journal they can explore how spirituality and creativity are inextricably linked.
Hollywood Journal is where those who enjoy Hollywood can talk about its impact on their lives. How a movie changed the way they see the world, how a single scene opened their heart or a TV show set their life on a different course.
