Duality

A few nights ago I decided to make a movie. Like most of my best work it was totally on a whim. So I got out my video camera and got to it, basically as an experiment in unplanned, scriptless, one-person film making.

It took about four hours to shoot, between 11 pm and 3 am (plus two small shots I had to re-do later). I edited it in a program called Kino, which took ages but I'm pretty happy with the result. All the gore effects were done with tomato sauce, of course. I credited myself with camera work but really most of the credit should go to various household tables, chairs and shelves.

My actual resolutions

I don't usually make New Year's resolutions but why let that stop me? Here they are:
  • Study more regularly. Cramming during the two weeks before exams may be somewhat effective for passing exams but probably isn't the best way to learn stuff.
  • Go out more. I don't know why, but I never seem to get around to actually going out to pubs with people from uni. Which I really need to change because drinking with people is one of the best ways of getting to know people.
  • Jog regularly. I started jogging when I was studying for my first round of exams and I enjoyed it, but then when uni went back I could never find the time.
  • Join some more campus societies.
  • Organise my time better, for obvious reasons.
