Trekked myself to Harvard Square to the screening of the New York Film Academy's short films from their 4 week course at Harvard. It was QUITE entertaining, and some of them were REALLY good. Followed that up with a meeting with the director of the NYFA film I've been cast in.
Oh yea, didn't I mention that? Next Friday and Saturday I'm doing the huge long film shoot days for a short film. One of my students got me involved with it, and I'm playing opposite him. It should be a WHOLE lot of fun. Neat story. I get to be all emotional and stuff. :)
So in just randomly talking to her, she mentioned the fact that she wants to start a film production company here in Boston. For those that don't know, the Mass Film Office just closed. We're now the only state in the union without a Film Office, I believe. That means there's no government agency trying to entice movies to come here and film anymore, which is really going to quash the film community that's here, I think.
Anyway, listening to Michelle talk, I found myself getting dragged closer and closer towards the end of the pier of security. Found myself wanting to jump off the end, into the unknown depths of creativity and insecurity. Found myself wanting more than what I'm doing now. More than Real Estate crap work.
Aht, as we say in Boston. I want Aht. To live it, breathe it, and bring it to life.
