Hard work, laughter, frustration, and dedication

I never thought I’d say this, but I’ve actually enjoyed group work this time around. Sure, it’s been frustrating from time to time, there’s been some miscommunications and disagreements, but there’s also been a lot of laughter. Around the time when the sun begins to set each day and we’ve been sitting in front of the computer screen for too many hours (because we’ve quite literally been living at Uni lately), the tired sets in and inevitably the laughter follows.

I’m very excited to see all the short films next week. Everyone has been working so hard and I’m sure there’ll be a lot of interesting and impressive films. I’m hoping our film will be well received and that it’ll give the class a couple of laughs, but it’s impossible to know what our audience will think so of course I’m a little nervous about showing our film. I myself have seen our movie too many times to tell anymore if it’s good, or just really bad.

(I’ll show you our film after our presentation next week)

Film production course: our first short film

My group’s first film: A möter B: Emergency Delivery

With the risk of regretting that I’m posting this, I thought I’d show you what I’ve been up to at Uni lately. As mentioned, my first course this semester is in film production and as a first exercise we were given the assignment to make a movie on the theme “A meets B”. My group brainstormed and made the above movie as our interpretation of the assignment.

This movie was “only” an exercise to get accustomed to the camera and editing. Now our real project is in full swing and naturally, it’s a much bigger deal. Considering how much work went into this short one minute film, these next couple of weeks are going to be intense.

Back to reality

Coffee during group work this morning.

I got home late on Sunday evening after travelling for 20 hours. From 4 am Sunday morning until I got home at midnight. I got so much studying done in the airports and on my flights that I’m wondering if this is a new study tactic I should apply.

The weekend was good, very low key and relaxing. And now it’s back to reality. I met my group yesterday morning and this morning to do group work, and I’ve got an exam coming up soon that I need to study for.

Unfortunately I’m not feeling too well at the moment. I was going to go to the gym this afternoon and then study, but I’ve got no energy. Feeling really crap. Hopefully a visit to the gym tomorrow morning will set me back on track.
