"Pick up your camera. Shoot something. No matter how small, no matter how cheesy, no matter whether your friends and your sister stars in it. Put your name on it as director. Now you're a director. Everything after that you're just negotiating your budget and your fee." ~ James Cameron

Tropfest Film Idea!

Wow wow wow! So today I’m meant to be studying for my exams…and out of the blue it’s just like ‘BANG!’

All I could think about was film college and film making and Tropfest! It was like BOOM boom BOOM… left right and centre!

Of course I just wanted to procrastinate, because honestly, who enjoys studying?!!! But but but (and please ignore the fact that I just started a sentence with the word ‘but’…3 times…)…I came up with a mega cool idea for my Tropfest Film for 2013.

Now I can’t go giving away all the details just yet…but I will give clues and post clips about my film making process for this festival. Whoop whoop! Can’t wait!

So clue #1: It will be innocent, funny and serious…ALL IN ONE FILM! Exciting stuff I know!

Happy film making 🙂
