Things are picking up pretty fast now, as I move further and further towards the world of work. Today I went down to Bletchley train station to do a location scout for the short film I’m shooting in just 2 weeks’ time. It’s unbelievably exciting to be actually preparing to do something for real that I’ve been imagining myself doing all through my time on the list and before, when I was too ill to consider actually getting on and doing it.
Now, more than ever, I’m aware that filmmaking is 100% what I want to do and to earn money doing it is my ultimate goal. The next few weeks are going to be a kind of make-or-break time for me when I will discover whether I am actually capable enough to pull it off, or if I’m going to have to revue my plans and options and consider a change of direction.
The scout was really exciting as it really drove home the fact that is is definitely happening now. It’ll be a real challenge and it’s already pushing me creatively more than I’ve been pushed before, but I’m absolutely loving it and thriving on the freedom to make decisions based on what I want to achieve, rather than aiming for the results someone else is going for.
I can’t wait to get shooting and turn out a really top-notch little film. Here’s hoping it can meet my expectations and provide a launching pad into the career I’ve wanted to follow since I was in my teens.
