Possible documentary thing

Post by Furburt on Fri Dec 09, 2011 12:54 am

So I had a serious crisis of confidence today when I realized I'm a lazy twat who'll happily procrastinate until doomsday. This needs to change, I need to become a doing person.

I recently applied for a volunteer position in a thing called Dublin Community Television. It's sort of a youth run tv station. They said they'd put me down on their list, but it's been 2 months and I've heard fuck all from them. I was moaning about this to my dad and he said, quite reasonably, that I need to get better at just putting my foot in the door and not taking no for an answer. The parents and I came up with a little documentary I can do and send into them to prove that I actually can do shit for myself and that they should hire me. If it's good enough, they might even show it.

The theme I was going for was being a young person coming into age during the global recession. I was originally just going to interview my friends, but I figured with skype and all that, I could include a few of you guys too. Basically, I'd just ask you some standard questions and record your responses, and then splice it all together into a 10 minute film, along with filmed footage of people I know. Or if you don't have skype, I could send you the questions and you record your response to them yourself. Obviously, it'll be all boring and serious, can't go too mental on a first impression, but we might be able to make something interesting.

Now, given my track record for doing things and putting things off, this may well not happen at all, but I'd really like to just be able to see something properly to its conclusion. In fact, a lot of the reason I'm making this thread is so I can't just forget about it like I always do.

If anyone's interested, let me know below, and I'll start organizing stuff.

Right, so the first question I've hit upon is: As a young person, do you have faith in democracy?

Don't answer that yet, I'm gonna keep playing around with different wordings and the like, and it probably won't kick off proper until January.

Yep, any and all applicants required.

Now, it's only going to be 10 minutes long, so that means I probably won't be able to fit all of you in. So I'm going to have to pick and choose. DON'T FEEL BAD

I think you need someone who is a wild card, someone who is charming, elegant and British.

So call Alasdair then?

Hur hur hur - I can has help. You might want Tory Scum as part of it anyway.

Right, this now might have to be shelved for a while after my chances of that volunteer position have gone down the shitter. I am currently applying for another college course and that's probably going to take up all my time. However, I'll get back to this.

Dammit, I knew this was going to happen.

Damn. If you come back to this, I'm very interested. Love to talk politics and get attention.
