Today I joined forces with SpindleFilms. Spindle Films is a film production company that produces short films, music videos and advertisements. I hope that squirrel and goose productions will be very happy with Spindle Films just like Pixar are happy with Disney. We all know how that relationship developed.
I met Jake Saker who is the founder of Spindle Films at the Odeon cinema in Huddersfield.
Ok guys, so I am seriously struggling to find any tiny bit of motivation in my life at the minute. This blog post alone has felt like such an unbearable chore, and that is obviously not how it should be, given that Im supposed to enjoy writing and the like.
I am still feeling pretty miserable to say the least, the past few months, 2013 as a whole, have been some of the worst months of my life and I am really struggling to push past the wall of negativity that is quite prominent in my life now.
I've finally got my dissertation started and underway and you know what? I'm actually enjoying writing it which I never thought I'd be able to say but luckily the topic I picked is actually more interesting than I thought.
The title of my dissertation is: Is The A Model of Success for Fantasy Adaptations
I think it's interesting how varied the opinions of all the theorists and critics are and I'm enjoying reading the text books, except the ones that use massive words that make me sit there scratching my head like "wuh!?" But I'm slowly getting the hang of it haha.
I had the pitch today that I have been focusing on for a couple of weeks. For those of you who don't know or didn't catch the last post I did that mentioned it, the pitch was to a panel of three university lecturers and the purpose of it was to win one of 4 spots on a trip to Los Angeles.
I’ve ran into a bit of a problem with my Dawn script. The Scene by Scene I uploaded is 21 pages long. I’ve turned 10 of those pages into actual script making those 10 pages into 23 script pages. At this rate my film will end up around maybe 40-50 pages in length and the minimum is 90 pages.
I’m going to see this as a good thing though. I will finish writing the script and see what the final page count is and hopefully it will give me some room to develop the idea a little more, in particular I want to develop Lucy and Roy’s relationship and also some of the mystery about why the Shadowy Figure is haunting him so much.
