Phew *wipes sweat off brow*

Boy it sure has been a busy summer, well I say busy... maybe its been a little hectic... ok so its been uneventful...

I've been sitting at my computer doing nothing for a couple of months.

BUT! I have actually done some good *looks smugly around the room*
Because in a whole 2 months I have made two -count it- TWO films *beams*

And not to mention I finished the amazingly fantastic documentary on Marxist views on money an'all!!! (only took us a year to finish, well when I say we, I mean basically I)

Yeah, so I entered this film for youth competition with a rather cool idea which explores my complete and amazing lazy-procrastinating nature. Called revision :D

Anyway so as you can see it pretty much contained full on me for about 5 minutes -Oh the horror! My eyes are bleeding!- with a cameo by Catherine!

It also contained some lovely composing by mr Thomas H.Compere who was great ^_^
But obviously the film for youth guys didn't like it as much as I did... didn't wanna meet Guy Ritchie anyway *sulks*

The second film -the Marxist documentary- was an extra curricular thing that I took on about a year ago, back then Georgeus was head honcho but it all sort of went downhill due to a small part of the organisers if ya ask me, and the documentary quit a couple of times until it was just me left -oh and kitty- So I put myself in gear... and about a month or two later I had put together a little thing -6 mins- along with the wise words of Paul Smith -dialectical Materialist extrodinare-

So that little fiasco went ok, and put me with an ok documentary under my belt, along with the fantastic memory of this guy (on the left)

Who said that with money we can be happier - because 'rather than smart price we can bust out on walkers 'an that!' truly hilarious.
From the experience on the documentary I learnt that teams barely ever work :p and that you can't find decent stock footage on the internet for free. Who would have thought it would be so difficult to get ahold of a sun setting!!

So now we get onto my third and final outing in the filming industry that is my computer room.
So if you remember (who exactly am I addressing this to :P) I put something up about a year ago about a film I had in production; well that was for Studentfilms.com's summer contest, and without-a-doubt I was gonna enter it this year.
unfortunately last year my film didn't hit it off -not really a surprise there :P- but still, if I were making my films for other people then I wouldn't have any.

Now being my most recent of films I am currently very proud of it. After acting in my coursework for my A levels I took quite a shine to it, and decided that I; would for once be the star role. And I must say, for my standards the acting I did perform was performed rather well.

Well cept for this bit... you dont tend to laugh when a kidnapper is taking you away in their car.

And I also had the amazing skills of Mr Bert Mueller at my disposal who made a jaw-dropping score for my film in under 3 HOURS!!! I love you Bert ^_^ (awesome name too)

So here's hoping to some good reviews even if the film is a little cheesy... and doesn't make much sense. But it doesnt matter because we have Catherine tied up!

And 'cos I make another cameo as the bad guy (see those arms, I was wearing three layers of clothes, I really look absolutely massive, I'd be scared if I saw me :O)

So thats it really... in less than a month I will be off to university :O where no doubt I will be surrounded by much more professional people than myself, making films and hoping I can fit in well :/

'Do you have anything else in the works?' I hear you say... well yes I do as a matter of fact; I still hope to do a small documentary on the debates of videogame violence, as well as perhaps a nice little traileresque piece for the amazing street performers that visited my town... um maybe a month or two ago *avoids catherine hitting me* :P

So thats it for now, sayonara! (is that spelt right?)

Eh? Why would I hit you crazy woman?

Nice post, makes it look like you have actually done something this summer, a hell lot more than the last, altho this summer is like two months longer :P And don't be stupid you will fit in, everyone has problems, would you believe I do to? :P Everyone will probably be all quiet at first on your course and then as time goes by you'll all be friendly, that's usually how it works out....
