So I thought I'd start a blog page on my website to post about all and everything that's going on in my journey to become a filmmaker.
It sounds funny to say that I'm still trying to become a filmmaker because by all means I am. I make films, study films, write about films and live them in my everyday life - but I still don't feel like I've 'become' a filmmaker.
The amount I know about the craft both practically and theoretically feels like a scratch on the surface. So I guess that means to actually achieve being a filmmaker in my mind means to... start to master this medium? I don't know. There's some deep psychology going on about what it means to be an artist and at what point one can say they've reached a level where people will recognise you as such. Or maybe where I'll recognise myself as such?
I guess in this digital age where anyone can make a film the lines become blurred. Maybe we're all filmmakers? But then it doesn't feel so special to call yourself one when the 8 year old kids living opposite you are out making zombie films on the weekends.
That feels like a bit of a selfish statement.
But anyway, here's blog post number 1. Lets see if I can keep this up over the upcoming years hey.
