“I’m not saying I won’t renew contract. I want to finish my career here, but that will be decided by my performances on the pitch and my feelings. I won’t stay here if I am not important for the club. That’s clear.”
I stand nervously in front of the audience at the comedy club. It’s a full house. My hand shakes as I lift up the microphone to my lips. Beads of sweat roll down my forehead. I take a breath and shakily stammer out “s-so uhh.. H- how’s everyone doing doing tonight? I got a great… Got a great joke for you all tonight. Here it goes… Uhh… So… Why did the chicken cross the road?” The crowd is silent, but their silence asks a question. Why did the chicken cross the road? Before I have a chance to answer a man appears behind me, shooting me dead, a bullet straight through my brain.
The audience is silent once again, but after a moment they begin to break out in wild applause. A comedy critic cheers the loudest.
The next day, in his review of my routine, he simply writes: “the setup was lacklustre, but the execution was terrific.”
Are there online groups for getting feedback on reels & portfolios? I've gotten vague feedback on my reel & portfolio that I need to narrow it down & 'only show my best', it totally stumps me! I feel I'm making it worse by wild guessing. Then I feel guilty removing something & think, "It isn't as technically good but it shows my variety or creativity better." & visa versa. Or I'll remember in the past when someone liked it. How can I ask for a more specific critique without being annoying?
Hi there kidd-penn! Sorry for the wait to answer your question.
How you can ask a critique, and I am being honest, is just simply ask for a critique on your animation demo reel, and see if they can provide suggestions in improving your reel and skills. Some may not answer back (and please do not take it personal) due to overload of work themselves (animation is a very busy profession). Another thing is to continue to reach out to other animators/studios, and see who will respond back. After one does, thank them for their time, and apply their knowledge to your works.
On this blog, we do have a demo reel tag that you can look at for reference. Now, don’t copy exactly what’s on others’ reels, study them. See why they have them there, and then try to aim that kind of level of quality for your reel. Another big tip about reels/portfolios: Make sure it is your own work. I have heard too many stories of those who use other people’s works for their reels, and they get blacklisted afterwards (you do not want that as an artist).
I do hope this all helps, and again, ask nicely for a critique for your animation reel, and then continue to seek out and ask other animators. If you sit and wait after asking 1-3 contacts, it may not happen. Aim to at least ask 10 different people each day, and something will definitely come back sooner.
It totally looks like Julie is in the Nox club too tho! LOOK AT THE COLORS IN THE BACKGROUND... it's the same kind of red from the post I saw about the club.. It's really happening is it? The next season is so close I can almost feel it in my bones. The stress and pure happiness that comes with Skam.. God save us..
Anonymous said:Perhaps the party is going to escalate into a fight scene. That light behind Julie is the same as the one in Nox, so it does look like they filmed there.
I’d watch a whole show just about Millie Floss and her life with her two dads and being the daughter of Mobster’s. Without Tommy though, no in this show she falls in love with the singer from Cutter Moran’s club.
Not sure if you already saw this, but it's the club Henrik posted his latest IG story from. The place is really nice. Can you imagine Evak scenes in there?kosegruppadk(.)tumblr(.)com/post/158751666252/henrik-posting-a-new-insta-story-at-2121-and#notes

The weird thing about writing is that certain words take on certain meanings in your head. It doesn’t matter if the context is completely different in the new work– you’re always thinking about it in terms of the old one, and you can never quite shake it.
Like when I write about Vixen!Peter, it’s too much of a mouthful to refer to the strip club as Valles Vicky’s Vixen Valley, so I just refer to it as The Valley instead.
Most of my understanding of strip clubs comes from research I did for a completely unrelated story, where the main character works as a stripper for a while. The homeless camp she’s from, and to which she keeps returning throughout the series for plot reasons? It’s also called The Valley.
Name suggestion for the book club: "Les summerables"?
I'm probably gonna regret sending the suggestion because I'm realising how lame it sounds. But, I wanted to ask, in the book club, what sort of genres are we going to read? Or a bit of everything? 'Cause I really wanna join a book club but there are none in my area and I really want to talk books!
ooh!! @ordinary-planets recommended ABC - Areistotle Book Club hahaha and it’s catchy too :D
I want to read a bit of everything but maybe we can have polls or something to see what people want to read most. Also, I really want to include as many people as possible and keep it inclusive! 💛
So, I really want to get Gunner into agility, but I’m real hesitant to try out that dog club again, after our experience with them and Asher. There’s another club, but they’ve never responded to me.
Googling about, I found this agility lady with a bunch of awards but her website seems pretty outdated and… then… I discover she trains through the local humane society now!
I’ve sent her an email to see if I can drop in on one of her courses to see what they’re like (the current set of agility class goes until the end of April). And as I’m typing this, she already responded and said yes! So I’ll be dropping in in a couple weeks, since they don’t have class next week.
