Take a moment now to imagine your work life in 2 years…What do you see yourself doing?
In 2 years time from now i picture myself just out of university. I picture having a job as something low-paying but rewarding however apart of making films or music videos.
…then imagine your life in 5 years…
In 5 years i would love to be directing short films, nothing massively big yet but still gaining experience but having a steady income by working my way up. I will like to achieve having a broader network of a range of people to be able to collaborate.
…then 10 years.
After 10 years my goal would be to have broken into the industry and made a big Hollywood production. I really big goal of mine would be going to an award show. I would love to nominated but content even just have been there and have networked with fellow artistic people.
All of these i think may not happen but unless i try there is no hope in reaching my dreams.
Secondly the quote by Steve jobs i found very interesting point of view on our he looks at working. He talks about how working is a big part of your life which is true and why do something your not passionate about. It made me re think and happy to be following my passion for one day to reach the goal of loving my job and not thinking as it as a job but as a career or a hobby.
Here the quote;
“You’ve got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do.”
Another thing which i found interesting when reading through this week lecture is finding out other filmmakers blogs. For instance Ted Hope. Having a look through hes blog i notice how he’s layout of his page is very structured by on the left he had hes videos of hes work then in the middle little texts about stories of hes experiences, as well as on the right hand of the screen you saw where to contact him via social media links or emails along with how to subscribe to his page to keep update. When having another look at my blog i will try and take on board these things to improve the flow.
