  •  for me it's the poised, sustained eye contact (6+ / 0-)

    and the unusually camera-ready statement about a life changed and a readiness to devote one's remaining energy to climate change action.  

    For the vast majority of the rest of us, we get on camera and our eyes and language centers can't hold it steady like that, they falter and dart around, especially when/if we are gathering our intense and spontaneous thoughts and feelings.

    •  If I were playing the part (0+ / 0-)

      of an O'Reilly fan who has just seen the light after watching Chasing Ice, and encountered a guy with a camera as I was exiting the theater, my character's behavior would probably be based on thoughts like: "What's this camera - am I gonna be on TV?  Oh, my hair's not done, and I look awful" and thus I would be somewhat hesitant about talking at first.  'Cause I'm just a regular person, a Billo fan, not an actor.

      But then again, I'm an alpha aggro - after all, I throw people out of my house who don't agree with me on climate change. So that would make me bold.  And my birthday is December 21, so I'm a Sag-Cap cusp, which means I'm outgoing and down-to-earth.  Furthermore, I was born in the year of the Dragon, which means I'm really a performer at heart, even if I'm just a regular ole Billo fan.

      But I still probably wouldn't look into the camera the entire time because I don't have camera experience.  

      But this film really moved me, so perhaps I am more impassioned than camera-shy...

      Oh I want to believe!  :)
