Oh man this year is going to be FIERCE!
During my trip to Singapore and Malaysia I've had smalls bursts of inspiration to do all sorts of things. First semester, I am going to do a screenwriting course. I hope it will help improve my script writing ability, and possibly help me churn out some awesome ideas for a script. At the moment, I want to write a zombie comedy (zombcom?). I don't know what the story line is going to be, but I have a few characters that I definitely want to use. I need to nut this out a bit more, but hopefully, it turns out to be awesome.
Another thing I want to pursue is documentary. After producing/directing one for uni, I feel like I really want to do it. There is so much in our world, so many stories that need to be told or information that needs to get out there. After going to Malaysia and immersing myself with all sorts of people, I really want to make documentaries that explore culture and people, possibly geared in the direction of death, like funerals and mourning. It's all very vague right now, but I have a team already confirmed and willing to help me, so I'm feeling very inspired.
This then leads to work placement. I officially cannot graduate until I complete 80 hours of work in my field. This desire to make documentaries makes me want to crew for doco makers, learn how the professionals do it, plus just see what other stories people are interested in and learn about how to film under pressure.
Now onto a totally different topic, I am soooo going to wear lipstick this year. I bought this baby in Malaysia:
It's anna sui, number 350 in the matte version. I think it's awesome and looks good on me (the photo doesn't do the lipstick any favours). I'm very excited about this.
So yeah. 2010 is going to be FIERCE!!
