Well hello there! No I've not disappeared, just took a break without meaning to. It is an understatement that I have been busy. I've literally keeled over from being so tired.
It all kicked off week before last when I went to Bristol (which you can read about HERE) and came back to the world of work. Launched into catching up on emails and invoices and the like, while at the same time trying to organise auditions for the short film I'm working on AND trying to finish off a piece about Blood Simple (which I can hopefully share with you all soon).
Obviously, getting into work and doing my job took precedence, as it is my day job after all. Getting into work mega early just so I can leave a tad early was also cutting into my sleep. Not that I don't nap every chance I get, I had to basically nap every chance I get. To the point I was falling asleep at my desk mid type. With no rest in sight, I just powered through and got to the other side, this week, where everythhing seems to be just the same. I'm shattered.
As well as various things happening, my short film I'm making with my
friend Foxo, Late Nights at the Movies, has been taking up my time. Now
that the cinema is secured, we were able to just get rolling. We've had a
few production meetings, talking about equipment, costs and auditions.
We organised auditions for the weekend just gone and we will be
revealing good news very soon, but out of respect for the all the
actors, I won't reveal anything on here. But just to say its been a very
busy time. We also have another recce of the cinema this weekend, brief
but vital and we have another meeting Monday.
I have also been panicking and painfully trying to put
together a decent zine for my Blood Simple piece which was part of The
State of Things course. Here's a sneaky preview..
On top of work I've been trying to catch up on writing here, which didn't work out... but I will make up for it with the following planned posts:
The Slumber Party Massacre
10th Film Anniversaries
20th Film Anniversaries
Around the World: Wales
Watch List August
Against the Crowd Blogathon
I have also in turn been panicking and painfully trying to put together a decent zine for my Blood Simple piece which was part of The State of Things course. Here's a sneaky preview...
So, poor old blog has been neglected lately. But that will change in the next few weeks, got some big plans coming up!!
