I'm Getting The Hell Out Of Here

Well, I didn't get nominated by the EVVY Awards for either Editing or Multi-cam director. But hey, screw it. I guess I'm just a mediocre editor. Third place at AICE, not even a nomination at EVVYs. Sweet.

Well, I'm glad I'm going home, because I'm tired of this crap.

Wow... This Is Amazing.

This 1 hour documentary by BBC filmmaker Louis Theroux is amazing. He lives with the Westboro Baptist Church for what seems like a month, trying to discover what makes them tick. In case you don't know, WBC is behind the picketing of funerals of dead soldiers, and will soon be picketing the campus of Virginia Tech, explaining that everyone is feeling God's rage because America is doomed for being okay with gays and being a sinful nation. It's really a fascinating watch, but horrifying at the same time.

The irony is, that if they did what they are doing in just about any other country, they'd be in jail, or maybe even dead. With freedom of speech comes the annoyance of jerks like these, I guess.

I won!

I won third place in the AICE Filmspotting Competition! And got not only 150 dollars, but amazing contacts with the director of the AICE and his wife (who can help me get jobs in post-houses at almost any major city in the US!) and was offered internships (unfortunately I'll be away for the summer, so I couldn't take them) but if you are interested in the seeing my entry, click here. It felt like I was really a professional! An amazing feeling.

Lots of excitement here as I've probably burned 50 DVDs in the last two days being everyones proverbial beotch to make DVDs for the EVVY awards. It's been a fun ride. Tommorow I'll be Camera Assistant Director (Camera AD) on a music program called "Musicians Wanted"--I'll let you know how it goes.

It's So Close--I Can Taste It

I'm only three weeks away from the end.

I'm so excited.
