WooHoo! I'm now qualified as a summit-or-other in film, no idea what, but its exciting!

Also massively hung over after a night of celebrating the fact...


Don't know what to do now - make a movie I suppose...

Today is the last day of editing, at least for me - though mr moog (the director) is going to be polishing tomorrow - its quite nerve wracking yet satisfying & a relief to get it over with. Tammie has her graduation today, and mine is tomorrow evening, the rough(ish) cut went down very well at film school last night; getting it there was a nightmare, especially on top of stress from my marital (or non-marital) situation and I'll be happy to get the course over and done with. We had the usual set of problems - Avid being crap, Windows being crap, DVD burners being crap all adding up to huge stress and irritation. The solution in my view is a nice Mac; not sure about the software, Premier is a little un-professional and I have little experience with Final Cut Pro - but that may be the answer.



Lunch has helped me relax though, a glass of mulled wine at the Earth and Stars, accompanied by gentle Jazz and a copy of Edge - to remind me of the cynical (snide even) world of cheapo pulpy hacks and their unfortunate position from which to destroy other peoples work while jealously feeding their careers from it.



ahhh...

Ho Ho Ho! and a Happy Christmas to you all!

(He shouts, as a terrible excuse for posting pron on his blog)



OK, maybe things weren't going quite as well as I though on Sunday, perhaps I've made the most hideous mistake since last time I made... the same mistake.

Oh well, Santa's little helper will make it all better...

Monday morning, I'm so tired I can hardly stay awake. Had an evening of drunkenness and debauchery, Tammie and Ross both nearly got us chucked out of the Barley Mow for being too pissed which was very embarrassing. Strange that I was sober enough to take control of the situation and keep us in there...



...and strange things have happened, all very odd - and great at the same time.
