I’ve decided to set myself some goals. I feel like if I’m to make a real career of this I have to have deadlines and goals. Just saying it’s what I want to do and going through the motions with no plan is stupid.
What I really want: I’m a little unclear on this. I think as I get more involved I will find it. I’m interested several aspects of film work. I like setting up cameras and photography, I like setting up scenes, I like editing.
By August I will have my second screenplay done and I will have written 2 short films.
By the end of the year I will have in some capacity participated in the making of at least 1 film.
By June 2011 I want to shoot one of my short films.
To accomplish these goals I will continue on my writing plan. I will actively search for work on films. I will start reading more books on making movies and jobs in film. Hopefully this reading and on set work will help me plan my short film.
