Fun or no? I'd be the worst at that, btwHired to properly format several screenplays by a novice script writer.
This weekly post makes me realize (in a good/fun way) how odd some of my projects may look, but I really do enjoy all of them.
Depression has been kicking my ass for 5 straight weeks. I've been so lethargic.Conquering my crippling depression as well as writing my super duper final draft of my short after a successful table reading. Also getting preproduction stuff started. I feel like I'm walking through cold molasses.
I've been miserable for the past 4ish months or so. Getting out of bed and going to work has been hard. But I'm finally starting to get a little energy back.. for now. I need to start running again and taking cold showers (as silly as it seems they work, at least temporarily) That said I have a joined a 48 hour film group that's filming at the end of this month. I'm taking a trip to Chicago in a couple days and I actually feel like I am making some headway into getting back into the filmmaking game. This script I wrote over a year ago has been an albatross around my nect. I was supposed to film it last summer but life happens. After this past Sunday's table read, seeing everyone read it and genuinely laugh at all the funny bits has really perked my spirits up. I have all the gear I need. I just need the cast and crew.Depression has been kicking my ass for 5 straight weeks. I've been so lethargic.
I bought some C4 preworkout mix and it's a game changer. Finally I'm getting stuff done again.
When the scripts are good/well-written, I enjoy it. When they're lousy, I remind myself that I'm getting paid to do it, so just suck it up
It's not only the why that's missing (and why a lot of these so called "rules" are silly), but two other things I noticed: Why would I take advice from someone who makes terrible films, and why do they explain every tip with 50 seconds of explanation in a list of 15? No newbie is taking this all in and really understanding it, and certainly isn't going to be practicing 15 new things at once. That's not a learning curve, it's a recipe for disaster.LOL, you are right: YouTube is full of tricks showing you how, but almost never why.
Rendering a new preview of a timelapse/hyperlapse video. I'm happy how I stitched several shots together. Next week my client will hopefully supply the logos to finish it
Time for weekend!
Turning 37 tomorrow.
