Film study, screenings, watchings

Big. news.

I’ve been accepted into the Honours scriptwriting course at Victoria in 2011.


Fortunately, I had an idea for a feature length Western just the other day, which I’m going to start jotting down. I also have a few shorts and a biopic that I want to work on. That’ll keep me good and busy for the next year.

More news below…

Alex Funke, who taught the Film Production course that I did in 2010, is doing a workshop on shooting on 16mm film. I was like, ‘that’s an investment’; so I’ve signed up for it. Tuesdays over two months, and one weekend of shooting a short. Amazing.

Then, the evening of signing up, I remembered that I was going to look at running Beginner’s Bellydance classes on Tuesday nights. But it turns out my scriptwriting classes are Tuesdays. So that might not have worked anyway. Either way, I’m looking at places to run another Beginner’s Bellydance class.

Also, the same day I signed up for the class, my credit card took another beating, as I entered Harmless into consideration for some more Film Festivals. I think that’s going to be enough for now. The cast/crew DVDs are nearly ready: two more people need to get their bios to me, and then I can burn them and distribute. Yay!

I’ve watched one of the films from my twofifty list: The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly. Finding time to watch films is proving hard, especially when one has film projects and house projects to do. Perhaps I’ll treat myself if I work on my sound design project for 8 hours today.

Thanks to Nikki (Kiwi Girl’s Take on 101 Cult Movies) for sharing my twofifty post. And special congratulations on getting your blog sponsored by!

Other than that, I’m working on the sound design for a short, and have a deadline tomorrow. Paramount has a movie poster sale today, so I’m considering heading out for an hour or so into town – grab a coffee, look at posters, come home and work more. Right, back to it. Thanks for reading.
