I realize that I’ve been absent from the blog scene for a fairly decent amount of time (not that my many doting imaginary fans seem to mind – hopefully), and I have decided that I should go ahead and change that little problem. So as of now I will focus more on steadily keeping content coming out to help make people believe this is an actual functioning blog instead of some random blocks of thoughts I decided to put together because there isn’t much else to occupy my time.
Rare picture of typing process
One of the major issues that comes with running a blog is trying to figure out what exactly it is that people actually want to take time out of their presumably busy lives to read. Thinking along those lines, there’s not really much that I can come up with . There’s already so much out there that it’s hard to say what can possibly be new and inventive enough to draw in a decent enough crowd of interested readers? The answer is that there is none. There is nothing I can possibly say to keep you here.
Don’t know what you were expecting here folks
Getting that out of the way, time to focus on what my purpose with this blog. There are many budding filmmakers out there who have no idea where exactly to start and maintain both an passion and employment in this field. Or maybe I’m the only incredibly clueless one, in which case you can just sit there and watch me flop around this field, trying to figure out where exactly everything is.
So I hope to share not only what I learned, but also spread some of that knowledge with you beautiful people. Or just watch me fail gracefully.
This blog is all about the world of cinema from a completely unprofessional, self taught film enthusiast.
I will try and include production terms and concepts and whatnot to help one become more familiar with the workings of a film production. What are all the different positions on a film set? What sort of terminology should one expect for these different jobs? What is a production assistant expected to have to do? (besides being everyone’s personal bitch on set)
Also there will be the random informal film analysis and/or review mainly because I personally enjoy analyzing films. Besides, what king of film enthusiast would I be if I didn’t dissect a film? I do have to warn the reader that I have an untrained eye for everything I am viewing, so I can’t guarantee the most professional analysis. Then again it is an informal analysis so….
Since I am an aspiring filmmaker, I may include some personal works of mine. Usually these productions will be incredibly low budget and may not have the best quality, so just a warning these videos may not always be the prettiest.
While in the future I may pursue formal education of this field, for now I will try and teach myself what I can. Or I may get lucky and learn enough to finally be able to work on a film set. Either way I’m hoping to delve further into the world of cinema and production while at the same time dragging everyone else here with me.(Side note – I will not include film descriptions of films I analyze since this is not an essay for class and I trust people know how to Google.)
