so i'm still technically "jobless". its tough but i'm man-ing it out now but i've sorta been working for matt archambault (my life drawing teacher, advisor, and of course a great role model) on his website it's not really a full time job or anything but it's definitely easing the pain of recession. i've finally sat down and really watched his videos and man, are they inspiring. i'm going to get myself out of this rut and really pull through. these times are hard and i'm not going to settle for anything less. i'm going to really find a job in my career or at least in the arts. so this means i'm going to really work on my portfolio website, work on my resume, and actually really try to send them out. before i was just sorta contacting people, but i'm really going to try and do my very best.

other than that i've been thinking a lot about my last year in SVA. i know that my film isn't as bad as i keep thinking it is but it really changed me and i felt that it wasn't really done for myself but for other reasons. i feel that i wasn't myself when i was working on. now i'm in a positive light and more motivated to do something that i'm happy about. no rushing, or competitions, or negative energy. i'm going to start a new film. i've had a few ideas in my moleskin that i've worked on while doing thesis so i'm going to get my hands dirty and really rip them apart and find that gem. there are a lot of things i'm going to change while working on this film. no more secrets? i think my biggest fall on "Pathway" was that i was too afraid to share my ideas with others. there were strong competitions and i was afraid of leaking my idea out to my classmates. (how foolish of me) i'm going to put it all out there and i will be more than happy to and even grateful for any feedback and critiques.

i'm going to be helping out jisuk cho on her thesis film this year (check out her thesis blog >>><<<) and helping her around with it has really got me on an itch to work on a new film. i cant wait to get my hands on her film and really work on it, it definitely hits my happy buttons and i'm honored to on her film.

so in a week or so i'll post up so thumbnails of what some ideas i've been brewing in my head.

you'll be hearing from me again in a week or two :)

hiii Sandyyyy

I know this is a late comment but I definitely relate. I've been in a massive amount of stress over jobs and apartment hunting for the past two months, but things are starting to look up and I'm hoping that moving into a new place/starting a new part time job will help get me out of my own rut. I really want to just relax, draw and create again. I'm excited that you're making a new film and looking forward to hearing more about it!

hope to see you around, keep in touch! :)

I'm moving pretty near where the school is actually since I'm going to be on my own and wanted to be in a place I'm somewhat familiar with -- lucky enough to get an apartment for a decent price! I'll be a couple weeks in settling in and stuff but yeah we should definitely set a date :D maybe get some of the other people to show up too.
