It's Been A Long Few Weeks

Between the day job and filmmaking I've barely had any down time this last few weeks. Im cream crackered. But.... it will all be worth it one day - so I keep getting told. It's easy to say that when you're not the poor filmmaker in question!

I am enjoying a bit of a rest day at present before getting back to the day job for a few days then heading to London for a music festival. I've scraped together my pennies so I can have a little fun and accept that I may be eating toast for the remainder of the month.

As well as filmmaking I've also managed to talk my way into writing for another film-related website - I shall be writing reviews for the site as well as some original articles for my current series of articles and blog title - The frustrated Ramblings Of An Aspiring Filmmmaker. I shall be digging through my thoughts and feelings on everything film and attempting to salvage a few hundred words for my new weekly section with the site. A few hundred words a week and then a long article once a month is the thinking. I shall also continue writing an article every month for flickeringmyth.

Also - today I recieved an email from the good ol' Beeb about my interest in the new opportunities arising at BBC North due to the current wave of relocations from London. I registered my interest last week and recieved an email today inviting me to undertake an online test as they felt my curriculum vitae had some promise. The test took about an hour or so and was pretty gruelling in places. Fingers crossed I did well enough. I've been yearning to get the hell out of 'The Port' since I was 15, but always end up coming back. Perhaps relocation with a solid job can keep me away as well as allow me to build my career. Working in fiction film is fun and I love being on set and Ading, but it isn't paying the bills at present. Proper, paid work in the industry would see me opening doors and affording to live.

But first of all - I may just have a snoozzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
