June 20, 2005
I haven't made that many entries since the end of exams, nor have I really been reading other peoples', or commenting particularly. It seems that the vast majority of things I write about stem from my general dissatisfaction with life (hence the posting spike during the first 5 weeks of term). Therefore I must conclude that I am happy, or at least content at the moment, for I find I have nothing really to write about. Of course, what with the complete lack of commitments at the moment I have pretty much been doing what I want for the last 4 weeks, so that's probably the cause. It's nice to know, as it doesn't happen very often.
On a side note, I was roped into doing Warwick Shootout on Friday. We filmed all night and I believe were the first team to finish (at about 11:30 on Saturday morning). Sadly I wasn't there during the editing process, as the lack of sleep hit me at 9 and I stumbled back to my room to pass out, but I have been told it looked pretty good in the end. It didn't win any awards, so it wasn't shown at today's presentation (possibly not a bad thing considering I was in front of the camera for one scene and would not have been able to bear the embarrassment).
I would like to make a couple of points about the awards. Firstly, two of the films that won – Best Film and Best Response to Brief – were made by staff or alumni – people with so many more resources than us that it wasn't fair to judge student films on the same level. Secondly…and this will only be understood by people who were at the screening…Immersion – WTF?
