I’ve been filming bits and bobs with my new camera and sound equipment and editing by learning how to use Adobe Premiere Pro (thanks YouTubers). There has never been a better time for the autodidactic/creative in me to acquire knowledge and experiment. It’s as if I’ve fallen in love again with filmmaking, having spent a long time out of sorts with the problems associated with narcissistic/neurotic personality types or “energy vampires” who flocked to the indie sector in droves. I needed time out. During the past year I got my teaching qualification with top marks (I’m officially Outstanding!) and underwent a metamorphosis of sorts. I have worked exceptionally hard during my time in the field as a filmmaker. Teaching, however, requires slightly different sets of skills and endurance; the challenges are on-going and the project never comes to an end.
My mentor during my training year discussed my aims and ambitions and drew up a its of things that I wanted to achieve. Upon analysis, all of my aims were for creative activities. I will add links to what I am up to in future posts.
