Festive Fare

So, there you have it. 2009. Whoosh. Gone. Just like that. "Life moves pretty fast. You don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it." (RIP John Hughes)

An interesting and exciting year, by all accounts. Two episodes of EastEnders, wrote & directed a short film, and a couple of other bits and pieces. Short film and EastEnders being the obvious highlights. Still have the short film to finish (just waiting on final bit of post-production) but hopefully that will be done and dusted in the New Year. After that, who knows? Push for more commissions. Try to create more opportunities. Write new scripts. Get the short film out there. Do more directing. Make another film (sssh, don't tell my wife).

It's been the Year of the Twitter, too, hasn't it? That's been fascinating, to say the least, especially as I managed to raise £1k with the Twitter Short Film Fund. Although blogs seem to have taken a dip in content and use, social networking sites are all the rage, and there are emerging opportunities for writers (e.g. games for social networks, check them out).

Any-old-hoo, time for a break. Let's see what 2010 has in store. Until then, have a cool yule, yo, and see you in the New Year.

Merry Chrimbo Big D - know where you're at with the not-telling-the-spouse on the short filmmaking, hoping to squeeze a THIRD "it's not a big budget, just a coupla hundred quid, you won't miss it" short past the Hub next year... Arf. Though our budget QUADRUPLED on the last one - NEVER SHOOTING IN A WOOD AT NIGHT EVER EVER EVER AGAIN!!!

See you in 2010.
