I CAN! \o/

It's Wednesday morning and I'm on HOLIDAYS! I tell ya...I needed this break. My class this year are a handful. I'm not moaning. At all. I love my job but it's soooo nice to have a break.

So. I have the house to myself. This of course means getting stuck into some vidding that I'm busting to get done. \o/ (in between bouts of housework that is...)

I don't think I've mentioned that I am making a film at school. It's with a select group of children and it's for an international competition. It's extraordinarily exciting. It can only be 5 minutes long and the children have to do everything. Come up with the concept, write the script, shoot it and edit it - with my guidance of course, but essentially it's their project. I thought the hardest thing would be coming up with a concept and script but they've done it and we will be ready to shoot next term. They've chosen graffiti verses urban art as the theme.

I'm on a huge learning curve myself. I made a film when I was in uni but that was a gazzillion years ago. I hope it works out.

While I'm here a HUGE congratulations to Supernatural wiki for winning "Best Franchise Specific Site" at the SFX magazine Blog Awards". It's an incredible achievement. For more information pop over to missyjack's place where deserved celebrations are happening. \o/

Right. Better get to it. :D

Hope you are all having a great morning/afternoon/evening.

ETA: Beware small spoiler for next ep in the comments. Probably something everyone knows by now anyway. :)

Oooh that urban art vid sounds awesome!
20th-Apr-2011 02:52 am (UTC)
It's pretty exciting. I hope we can pull it off. Their ideas are great - we just have to translate that to film now..eep..

Enjoy your break ash! Looking forward to your new vids, especially after the western epi airs this week - maybe you could put something to music with that one. (Kid Rock's "Cowboy" comes to mind) *g*

Good luck with the kids and your project - sounds like a lot of fun.

20th-Apr-2011 03:04 am (UTC)
Thank you. I will. :)

Hee... I've had another request of a vid from that ep (which I find hilarious considering it hasn't even aired yet) to Save a Horse Ride a Cowboy. I like your suggestion though. All depends on how the episode plays out I suppose.

Can't wait to see!

Thanks hun.

WHEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! Holidays YES! *does happy holiday dance with you* Honestly someone needs to have words with the Educational Powers That Be about having terms last over 10 weeks, that is just NOT ON. I have a feeling though it would be easier to get an audience with the Pope in order to propose the moving of Easter so it doesn't get absorbed by school holidays *sigh*

YAY Vidding-fest! EXCELLENT. I am looking forward to the outcome! Sounds like a very awesome project you are doing with your kids - I bet they're totally psyched for it too!

And yes I have left a comment over on missyjack's place regarding her well deserved win with Superwiki there. It's truly an amazing site.

Ok - I am going to get productive now too, my holiday TO DO list is a mile long and unfortunately contains 10 days worth of relief lessons to write up since I fly out in 2 weeks to the UK MEEP!!! All is good and under control...well soon to be anyway! *vbg*

*DANCES* SO awesome that they are finally here. NO idea why we couldn't have finished last friday and started back Monday fortnight...strange. Still wouldn't have messed with easter.

I'm really looking forward to the vid I'm working on being finished. I've had a ball making it. Even ventured out of my comfort zone with one section - so hopefully I can pull it off.

The kids are very psyched for the film. I'm so happy we have a script already. I thought that would be the hardest part. I think the actually filming will be the tricky part. I'm sure they'll do fine though.

What a fabulous school project for you, of all people, to be involved in. I wonder if your kids realize what a gifted instructor they have. &hearts

Yay, for vacations! Ours is coming up next week and is desperately needed.
21st-Apr-2011 01:57 am (UTC)
Awww... thanks hun. I hope they realise how lucky they are to have an opportunity like this in primary school. Not many primary schools have media programs, let alone be able to make an actual film. I've been lucky also to be give the extra time to do it. :)

Yay! Holidays...enjoy yours honey. :D
20th-Apr-2011 06:49 am (UTC)
Enjoy your holidays dear!
The film thing sounds so interesting! Good luck with that!
21st-Apr-2011 01:57 am (UTC)
Thanks honey. I will! :D
21st-Apr-2011 01:59 am (UTC)
Hee.... yes. That spoiler is rife around the place at the moment. Congrats to you if you've remained completely unspoiled.

And yes, the kids have totally surprised me with their ideas. I will "boast" the end product if it works out well. I might just hide if it doesn't...

20th-Apr-2011 10:17 am (UTC)
Thanks so much for the shout out of love! And good luck with the exciting filmmaking!
21st-Apr-2011 02:01 am (UTC)
I hope you enjoyed your celebratory drinks last night. I bet you guys are still on a high. Such a great achievement.

And the film making will be a new experience for me so I am excited about that. (At least all the time I've spent vidding will come in handy... *G*)

20th-Apr-2011 12:41 pm (UTC)
Enjoy you holiday. Wish I could say the same. :P
21st-Apr-2011 02:01 am (UTC)
I will. You'll get a break over Easter yeah? At least that's a little something.
21st-Apr-2011 02:03 am (UTC)
No break - all work.

And I might not even be able to watch "my show" ove the weekend when it returns.

Now that sucks...
20th-Apr-2011 06:41 pm (UTC)
Sounds like a great project. I hope everyone has fun with it.

And very cool about the Wiki. It's a wonderful resource.
21st-Apr-2011 02:02 am (UTC)
Thanks hun. And yes! Wiki is indeed an awesome resource. I use it nearly every time I vid or attempt to write some meta.

Have a great time during the holidays, BB!! :)
21st-Apr-2011 02:02 am (UTC)
I will sweetie! *hugs*

Enjoy your holidays! :)
We are having gorgeous weather here lately, and the PC doesn't seem all that appealing, so just a quick fly-by from me. *wave*
Oh, and that school filming project sounds great! :D

See ya! *flies off into the distance*

21st-Apr-2011 09:35 am (UTC)
*glomps* hey hun!

Thanks for the quick fly-by. Always love hearing from you. Gorgeous weather is indeed worth staying away from the PC that's for sure. :)

I'm looking forward to seeing what the kids come up with re the film. It should be great fun.
