I don’t know how many follow this, this is as much a catch-up and centring moment for me too, figuring out what I’ve been doing with my life the last year or so.
I realise now that it’s been over a year since I last posted a wee post here, and a ridiculous amount has changed which I’m gonna try and summarise in a few bullet points:
- I live in Glasgow now which is the first time I’ve lived in a city.
- I work at a whisky bar called The Ben Nevis in Glasgow which I love, this is my living.
- I’m an Ambassador and Content Producer for a whisky company called Peatreekers.
- I’m an SFX Technician for a company called Artem.
- My first short narrative film is finally in the works to being produced and we’re currently working on the crowdfunding campaign.
- I’ve a bunch of projects in the works that should be realised sometime this year.
I have another two short films nearly ready for competition, and a feature script that needs god knows how much work to do before it’s ready for submission for next years deadlines in January, but I’m feeling it, I think it’ll be good.
These last few months have brought about a lot of existential thought, natural I guess for a writer, and the scripts I’ve been writing have been a real decryption and analysis of who I am too. I’ve met so many talented film folk, artists, musicians, and people at all different stages of their life.
I’m going to try and post something once a week, or every other week. I need more of a regime in my life rather than just waking up, spending a day in a coffee shop and going to work two or three times a week.
I’m always posting on my Instagram and I’ve recently taken a more artsy streak with my film photography, so if you’re reading, hi and hello and go take a gander!
Current goals are to find a second job, finish writing these two short films, and get my crowdfunding campaign live and running by the end of next month. Everything is about to shift up a gear, so I figure publically documenting what is about to happen could be entertaining for the majority.
In the meantime, enjoy my application for becoming a whisky distillery tester (I’ve still not heard back).
