A Year as a Filmmaker

Recap of my year:

January – I wrote a five-page script called “Phone Call”.

February – I created my production company, Foolish Fox Films and filmed “Phone Call”.

July – I had an idea for a web series and wrote two episodes. “Phone Call”, was completed and submitted to festivals.

September – I pitched my web series idea and a week later “Phone Call” won best comedy at its first festival.

November – I found out my web series had received 20k in funding from Telus Storyhive.

Workouts That Work

I’ve been trying out different ways of working out recently. The gym doesn’t work for me. I go there, I watch Netflix on the elliptical for an hour, do a few floor exercises that I do at home anyway, and I leave. It’s not fun for me, I don’t see any progress, and I’m probably doing something wrong without knowing it. Because of all that, I don’t feel excited or willing to go to the gym, and as a result, I spend money on a membership that does not get used.

Pitching a Web Series

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.
