Renewed faith

If their was one word... one description that could sum up my last month... one final statement to conclude it all...what would it be? would could possibly explain my sudden absences? that final note

WOW!!!!!!

Honestly thats the only description i could conjure up. let me explain...

okay well for the first week of this month it was films ahoy! pre-production, production, and post production all rolled into one film! all in one week as well!,But hear me twas for a good course!

you see when you still trying to strive along on, survive, by yourself as a college student, one is going to some what of a financial support, a little cash in your wallet, keep you going by, you know what I'm talking about?
unfortunately i had none... not a surprising thing to hear from a naive teen my age, we are all broke!
however I struck gold a few weeks back! an old accomplice's and I ran into each other whilst fairing through the night life of Hobart, she also developed an interested in the film and television industry and apparently was lucky enough to score herself a job in a small add being created in little Tazy, I was fortunate enough to assist with the post production!!!! I was thrilled! the scenario ended up with my self getting a healthy budget boost! and one hell of a great memory walked right back into my life! friends reunited!!!

So with renewed faith in passion for the film industry releasing it wasn't just some phase most students go through, I realized it was time to up the game.. a journey down to the local film and television enthusiast and equipment hire establishment down in salmanca soon fixed it.

I found it with the help of my visual workshop tutor and some fellow colleagues a nifty little place called :Wide angle Tasmania turned out to be everything i was looking for, with the exception of the pricing! Agh alas it seems in order to make money in this industry you first need the money!
facing this prospect from a student prospective is like facing a huge concrete wall a mile high! with shadows reaching far enough you get the impression your back in the stone age.

It seems the universe is truly an image of the ying and the yang theory. here is the link if anyone is interested:

On the positive side i was able to secure a position as an observer in an up and coming film work shop called : Directing & acting masterclass with Di Drew, you know that director!!:)
who knows what that will bring, hopefully ill gain some useful insight in how things work far out and beyond the confines of a college campus class room environment. the master class is scheduled to start this coming Friday.
heres to happy future vendettas!

which brings me to last week.. last week was eventful as well full of productions, general catching up with class work and assignments due an age ago! ah just kidding I feel I'm fairing just as well as the next companion.

on top of all this work load it seems a whole lot of complications are trying to pull me down... a load full of family related, relationship related work related problems have popped up continuously throughout these last few weeks. almost as if these burdens are crying to be heard and sorting, unfortunately i Don't really have time for such matters this year... I've become somewhat of a cold bearskin... and i Don't like it one bit! oh well what am i saying, I'm sure everyone my age are all feeling the heat.

Okay well as I'm sure you all agree i have rambled on quite a lot more then usual! for this I am sorry , i just feel the need to catch up on my posting ill leave you all with one of my more favored pictures i have on this malfunctioning laptop of mine. i feel it really captures the essence of my position right now.


make off it what you will.
until next post, free loving to all! and ill catch ya all on the other side!

Yeah I know what you mean, it seems that the job we desire is just always beyond our grasp. There is always one thing holding us back whether it be financial burdens or our own doubt of ourselves. It doesn't seem quite worth it sometimes, everyone always says follow your dreams, do something you enjoy, but sometimes in trying to do that you lose some of your passion for it. So we shake our fists at it and curse and feel better =P I know how you feel. I guess we can only do our best and try to go forth hey. Stupid money.
