Chapter 55: Studying

Time is something we can never get back and lately, I’ve felt as if I’ve been wasting a lot of my youth and my future.

I met my wife over 10 years ago and when we first started dating, we had hopes, dreams, plans etc. Most of the things we wanted just never happened and with kids in our lives, we probably won’t do for another 15-20 years.

I’ve talked about it before but for year’s I’ve wanted to write and direct a film. It’s probably not going to be any good, I just want to make one. I took a few steps, wrote a few scripts, bought a decent mic and about 6 months ago bought a camera. But I just never put the effort into actually doing it.

Well, I’m 33 and I’m going to start taking my first real steps into filming an indie movie. I’m taking an online course about scriptwriting, I’ve bought audiobooks to help. I’m giving my self 2 years to save money and film something.

I’ll talk more about what I’m learning and how things are coming along.

Until next time!

Chapter 43: Upgrade!

Finally! Finally, I decided on what phone to go for. After much deliberation, I bought the Huawei P30 Pro, which seems to have a decent enough camera to start recording with (40 MP).

Now I need to look at a good audio solution, not just the different microphones I’ll need but also a decent way of recording them. I’ll probably spend a few days looking for cheap audio recorders.

But for now, I think it’s time to start writing! Or maybe collab writing with a few friends of mine for scripts. Things feel like they are slowly getting to where I want them to be!

Chapter 42: Podcasting Again.

As this is being written it is… 2:33 AM Sunday morning. A good friend of mine and old Podcasting buddy Tom are sitting down to record a practice session for our podcast. For the last 3 hours my wife has been coming down stairs to wake my sleeping arse up from the sofa.

About a week ago I messaged Tom asking/ telling him that I want to record some more practice podcast sessions. There is a lot of things going on in my life lately, what with a new job, my wife’s Fibromyalgia, my son being born etc, so it’s hard to keep up with projects that I want to sink my teeth into, like podcasting and making movies.

It’s nice to get back into recording podcasts. Ever since I first heard about podcasts and listened to them, I think maybe 12-13 years ago, I’ve been interested in making podcasts and sharing my opinion with friends online. I honestly don’t know if anyone I record with will ever read these posts but I just want to say, thank you for being awesome and helping me move towards some of my dreams.
