I haven’t been posting as much lately as I should have, but that is because for the last month or so, I’ve been working on a web series. If you follow my reading/writing blog Precarious Reader, you may have read my post Derailed in which I mentioned that I had put aside the novel on which I’d been working for over nine years. I’d had an idea for a web series and I wrote two episodes, and then I got busy with some other stuff for a while and wasn’t sure where to go from there anyway.
I got super lucky in January in terms of roles. I managed to worm my way into four short films, two as the lead, one bit part and one background. But apparently that wasn’t enough for me, because I wanted to make a short film.
If you’ve been around long enough, you might remember I had written and directed a short film called SIV, based on the short story I wrote (this is the original short story, and this is the sequel from which the short film was made), and which premiered earlier this year.
This past week has been one of the busiest I’ve had so far this year, and all in a good way. A great way, in fact.
2018 has been interesting in a good way. As with nearly every year, 2018 started with parties. Then there were a few days of chilling and getting organized in preparation for the upcoming year.
I directed my first short film this past week.
Okay, so I have a lot to catch you guys up on in regards to my goings-on in the film industry. I’ve had quite the interesting summer.
Well, I don’t have any school to go back to in September. I thought I might take some classes but that’s not looking like it’ll happen until May. I’ve got a part-time job, but as stated, it’s only part-time. So what will I do the rest of the time?
Mild spoilers. Nothing serious.
I have been looking forward to this film for a long time (though not as long as Ryan Reynolds has).
I love Deadpool. He was my introduction to comic books and he’s just awesome. His humour, creativity, mercenary skills, R-rating, general quirkiness, and deep seated self-hatred all come together to create the perfect Mary Sue for everyone to love. Any shortcomings are overlooked because he can, has, and will break the fourth wall, making him interesting on a whole other level. He’s like Batman but with less money and more personality.
Disclaimer: The movie I just saw had a lot of swearing in it, so you can rest assured this post will, too.
Well I’m scared to shit.
I’m twenty-one years old. I still haven’t completed my university degree. My subject of study is freakin’ Creative Writing. I know fuck-all about Wall Street. So keep that in mind when reading what I’m about to say about The Big Short.
Ah, look. WordPress has just wished me a Happy Anniversary because I signed up with them one year ago. My counter is showing 1 hour to go before it’s been a year to the day this blog first went up. When I post this it’ll probably be up. But I’ll talk more about that another time.
I’m going to review Bridge of Spies tonight.
