I got some writing done in the morning, so I’m very happy about that. I’ve almost finished the first draft by now, after which I will location scout a bit on Wednesday (looking for willing coffee booth owners in Edinburgh, etc) and do some analysing of my own script (along with others) to see if I’m hitting the right notes and such.
I’ve been hurting like hell since Tae Kwon Do on saturday. Bouncing on the balls of my feet has fucked the entire backside of my legs, from my arsecheeks down to my calves. Subsiding slightly by now, so maybe a run tomorrow would be good.
Lectures today were good. Had Paul Holmes on script development. He’s the resident writing and directing guru. Cool dude, good lecturer. He’s always wearing those red “sunglasses” of his, which I’m sure would make most other people look like utter pillocks. The wild locks of dark brownish hair that surrounds them kind of makes it work on him, however. Then we were taught about script breakdowns by a guest lecturer called Susie Brown. I’m not going into project management or anything like that, but everything she had to say was both important and interesting.
I did indeed manage to get an appeal through to get my full grade for the theory module last year, which was just an incredibly huge relief to me. I know my essay was a B+ and my presentation a B-, so now we’ll just have to wait and see if I actually managed to eek out a Merit pass for that module or not. If I can help it, I want to have all merits on my BA, but we’ll see. Only three of the third year’s six grades go on to my BA. Still a chance!
Watched Some Like It Hot today. It’s incredible what they could get away with in those days. Fun and zany movie, but PC-freaks (not ‘puters, silly) beware! This is rocky territory!
Planned on doing some workouts, but my friend Atle invited me to play some Mercenaries 2 instead. Mercenaries 2 has a lot of issues with the gameplay, but it’s actually quite a lot of fun, especially when you’re playing with a friend. It’s sort of GTA-like in its setup, which works oddly well when you’re in Cooperative mode and driving around between missions (Which generally just involve blowing things up).
Good day, all in all. The week has started out as friends, I’ll do my best to keep it that way.
