My birthday was awesome! Everyone loved the quiz, and then we played a few games and headed out into Ormskirk. I had a really good night and didn’t suffer to much the next day…winner!
Exciting times ahead!
This weekend I’m heading back to the sauffff (or South for the Northerners amongst you). First stop is Lincoln (not exactly the South, but South of Ormskirk!) My best friend is at Uni there so I’m off for a night out on the Thursday. One of the best things about being at Uni is going off to other Unis to meet up with friends and partying in a new city or town. Then Friday, we are both heading back to Kent and checking in with all the family and friends on a speedy run round.
Then Saturday is when the real fun starts.
10. 30 am. Piccadilly Circus. London. 48 hour film competition!
So we pick up the brief on the Saturday morning. We are given a line of dialogue, a prop list and the sub-genre (it’s a sci-fi film competition, not really my area, but it’s all worth the experience). You then have 48 hours to script, plan, film and edit your 3-5minute film!
It’s free to enter all you need is your own equipment. And this is where I get all geeky but my best friend has access to a Cannon 5D, which I am psyched about getting my hands on! Also Edgar Wright (director of Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Spaced and Scott Pilgrim) is on the panel! We are not expecting to win, but it’s all about the experience. Plus, we haven’t worked on any projects together since Sixth Form so it should be really interested to see how much we have both learnt at Uni.
I’ll let you know how we get on 🙂
