What 2014 will mean

Posted on at

It never fails to surprise me how quickly a year goes. 2013 seems like a blur now. I look back and remember a fairly decent year for myself. I worked on some great programs with Fuzzy Duck, and I made a short film in December, collaborating with Anderson West (coming soon!). 

But with the New Year in full swing, I have my typically unrealistic list of resolutions on my iPhone’s Notes app. I won’t go into them too much but to give you an idea, I aim to make two short films in the first half of the year, read more books on film theory, and basically grow as a filmmaker. Other fitness related resolutions you can assume.

How achievable are New Year Resolutions?  The Christmas hangover is a common motivation to start our targets, before many of us forget them by February/March. I feel though that my filmmaking aims are realistic, and over the last six months I’ve had a new outlook on why we do this. I can’t define that right now, but it’s giving me a push to make my shorts.

On an unrelated note, I saw Christopher Nolan on the tube on New Years Eve. It took me twenty minutes before I walked over to him and asked him for some advice for a filmmaker. He simply said, “Stick with it.” Take from that what you will. I only wrote this paragraph to brag.


Happy New Year.
