Another post for another year, guessing this is becoming an annual thing for nobody to read! But its strange to see what differences there is in a year, and in my case very little!
Felt this post for 100% necessary this time due to the fact its my last summer, ever. After this one, its out into the big wide out world, no more sleeping in without feeling guilty, no more days of playing Zelda all day, no more watching anime all day, no more...FREEDOM.
Anyways, right now im literally in the exact same position as last year (both physically and metaphorically) as we have wrapped on Sophies Fortune, again (reshoots blah blah, long story) and im still jobless, and yeah, im in the same chair. But, on Sophies Fortune, I had to role of DOP (Director of Photography) which is a huge responsibility and puts me entirely in charge of how the film looks overall. Alot of fun, pressure and stress to boot, literally 14 hour days with no brakes, but in return tons of epic footage!
Jobs are stupidly impossible with my kind of CV, so i've gone the freelance/suicidal route instead and gone to local productions companies etc, had an interview today even which went pretty damn well. Still, as long as this summer is dragging out, theres still 3rd year looming, so my excuse right now for sleeping in is that im collecting it for the lack of sleep im going to get when september hits.
Anyways, lets see what the next post brings, till next year!
P.S. note to self, maybe start looking for jobs around Feb/March, that would be smarter, dumbass.
