2: Think of the last person who hurt you; do you forgive them? I can’t remember who hurt me last; I generally don’t hold grudges though. Whatever they did must not have been too horrendous if I don’t remember.
4: What’s something you really want right now? some water
5: Are you afraid of falling in love? Yes.
6: Do you like the beach? Not really. I hate sand, and I swam so much when I was little that I hate doing it now bc I hate getting swimmer’s ear. And I burn. When I go, I generally hang out under the umbrella and read/play cards. Last time I went to the beach, @aggressively-ignored and I created a new card game. That was fun. But I only really have fun bc of the people I’m with, not the location.
7: Have you ever slept on a couch with someone else? Yeah. Basically at every sleepover I’ve ever had lol
8: What’s the background on your cell? an #aesthetic pic of chihiro/sen from spirited away (lock screen) and soot sprites (home screen)
9: Name the last four beds you were sat on? uhhhh… mine (now), my parents’, my sister’s, and… I guess my grandparents’?? I dont sit on many foreign beds lol
10: Do you like your phone? No. It keeps dying at like 30% battery and it’s pissing me off.
Having been in worst health in recent history I made a miraculous recovery before the weeks end and was able to get back into uni for the sound induction!
From then on, this week went smoothly. Let me backtrack:
In last weeks post I was in a horrendous mood [probably due to my antibodies fighting off whatever virus threatened to consume me] and wasn’t feeling all that optimistic about the project. However, in an unexpected plot twist, after Steph’s departure to Photography, my group started jelling quite well. Akemi and Jake seem comfortable now to express their opinions and to actually contribute to the end result so this is all feeling very much like a group effort. funnily enough, we all seem to have quite similar aesthetic tastes, so the conceptual look for the video was basically agreed upon by all of us and at the actual shoot we all had lot’s of good input.
I am very happy with how things are turning out. Being sick, despite not leaving me with much energy, allowed me enough time to get in to quite a bit of narrative theory and explore genre tropes so I’m quite confident that our project is heading in the right direction. Sadly though I’ve discovered that, because I bought my computer on the other side of the pond - shout out to Canada 🇨🇦 - my computer is blocked to accept british DVDs. Meaning that my renting out of Cinema 16, City Lights and Wuthering Heights proved itself useless (as do the gaping spaces in my sketchbook). Never the less, everything seems to be going according to planned and I’ve gotten praises and ‘thank-you’s from the team for my work.
Yes, I am quite chuffed.
So, what can be improved?
- I think if we had better equipment available to us like a dolly or something, some shot could have been improved. I do believe we’ll be getting the induction soon though so I suppose it’s a waiting game
- Sound. At induction Lindsay said it would be a nice idea to take out all of the sound kits and compare them to really know what you want. I should do that.
- I’ve just discovered that Jake doesn’t actually have any editing experience despite having initially said he did. What does this mean? COMMUNICATION once again. And here I thought we were perfect…
