Jonathan and Lawrence pit the Avengers against Devaughn and Ashley's JLA
A nighttime Blog? Who knew we could do that? It's amazing! So today in class we had a special guest actor by the name of Bill Flynn come to talk to us. He was a wealth of knowledge and shared so much with the class. I can't remember the last time I felt so inspired in a classroom before. It was a great learning experience that I'm glad I was able to take part in. Since I sent in questions ahead of time I had a reserved seat in the front and most likely asked more than my fair share of questions but I couldn't help it. How often do you get to talk to people in the field you are trying to get into? It's a rare chance and I took full advantage of it. At the end of the day he gave me his business card, I thought that was really cool.
If you haven't heard of him check out some of his films! He has talent!
Jonathan starts the history of Marvel Comics off but quickly takes a detour to give a run down of X-Men highlights up until the 90's.
Jonathan talks about the police breaking the law.
So around 2:30 last night I decided to turn in and go to bed. I figured I'll go to bed at a some what normal hour (don't judge me) and wake up early. By early I was thinking something in the ballpark of 9:30 or so. Maybe write a blog, edit and post the newest Clean Jeans, after all it's Monday and it was supposed to be out last Thursday. So what happened? Why am I writing this at 7:30 instead of 9:30? That's what I'd like to know as well! I laid in bed for 4 hours and couldn't fall asleep no matter how hard I tried! It was hell! Sleep how I miss you. Please call me, we can work things out! I promise!
In other news I once again have 544 twitter followers. The dreaded number that I can't escape no matter how hard I try. I keep losing followers every time I get to 544 and it takes me forever to get back to that number. I feel like someone has cursed my twitter and I can't break free from the dreaded 544 number. Once upon a time I use to get new followers every day. Can we go back to that? It always made me feel good about myself, almost wanted.
My first project in school has stalled out. One actor left the project for a bus tour, believe it or not I'm really happy for the guy just sucks timing wise. My lead actress has pink eye and another actor can't make the call times. Not to mention that someone tagged up our location and the city has now closed it off. This was supposed to be the simple shoot so that I could focus on the second project. It's amazing how things work out, or well don't work out. It could drive a man insane, but this is the life we picked. Adapt or die, it should be the motto of every film maker, as well as every student. Student filmmakers know this well.
So the more and more I try and finish these project I create the faster and faster they fall apart. The faster they fall apart the more disillusioned I become. It's like a whirlwind that keeps circling the drain. I see the end in sight and I keep trying to swim upwards towards my goal and away from my doom but no matter how hard I try I just can't seem to get out of the whirlpools grasp.
Over the last few years I've learned a lot of tricks of the trade and I try everyone single one of them to get out of this situation. None of them work. In fact it's almost as if all the extra tools and tricks I've picked up drag me down faster. I can't support my own weight much less all this added nonsense. What can I do? How do I get out of the water and pack on the race track? Who knows?
I think for starters I have to toss aside all of the extra tools that I have picked up. I need to stop worrying so much about how each project looks to my teachers and classmates and start going back into the projects that I enjoy. That our fun for me. I took something that I love, that makes me feel alive and turned it into a chore and it's slowly killing me. That isn't good and it damn sure isn't healthy. I need to find my own path and stop trying so hard to follow everyone else. Because at the end of the day, who do I want to be like? Everyone else or myself? I pick myself and you should too.
Jonathan and Ashley talk about the new news coming from Marvel Studios as well as crazy sex stories and down ass chicks.
So school has just started back and things are already getting interesting. This semester they split workshop 1 and workshop 2 into 2 different classes, but this past Friday they put them back together to talk about the video club. Now for those who follow this blog or know me in real life, you know how I feel about this club. They don't do anything real. They just sit around and talk every meeting about what they want to do and get nothing done. Last semester I tried to start a second club, an underground club where we could make shorts and have fun doing everything the main club was supposed to do but wasn't. Well Friday changed everything. The teacher in charge of the club came into class and was asking for volunteers for club officers and no one was saying a word. Until Devaughn, from Uncanny Fans. When Tim asked for a leader who could take charge D threw my name out there. I thought it would go unnoticed but almost the second he said it people seconded it, third it and so on until it got to about eight people. Before I knew it I was the president of the club that only a semester before I tried to overthrow. Let's see if I can't change it from the inside.
