This is my first attempt at a short film. I wanted to have a go at directing before I left university as it often is the best time to try your hand at new skills! I know it might not be to everyone’s tastes and there is room for improvement, but that’s what a first attempt is. Enjoy!
Its something we all put off to the next year or the next year, but the truth is most of us never get round to it.
I started my Spanish course last September and haven’t looked back, as far as finding the time it is quite easy for me as I’m doing it as an extra module at my university (I know very impressive)! My reasons for learning it was because I have been to Spain, I have been to South America and, whilst I could start to understand them I never could get the hang of a conversation!
My other motivation was, of course, that I now have a Spanish girlfriend and as this is as good a purpose as any I embarked on my cultural journey. So far we have done a lot of tenses and I now understand about half of what people are talking about. But this is not the point of why I am writing.
I am writing to inspire others to do the same, admittedly I had a ‘chica’ to inspire me in the beginning, but a busy schedule should not stop anyone, there is always time. If you have time for a blog you have time for your new language! Whether it be Spanish or Japanese, if you can speak you can do it, and even if you can’t speak one language I’m pretty sure you’ll be able to learn as well (although I wouldn’t be sure how you would be reading this blog..)!
Happy Learning y buenos suerte!
I know I’m a bit late on this fron but I saw The Artist last night. Maybe it’s just me but i love clever intricacies of plot, especially when it is in view of a bigger picture as it is in the artist: the transition from silent movies to the talkies. Jean Dujardin played George Valentin, the crowd-warmer and his emotions portrayed entirely through his actions are still incrediblymoving.
If you are a fan of clever movies, i hope you’re not too put off by the fact the only voices that can be heard come at the very end. It is worth your time, and deserved every little golden man at the Oscars!
I realise i have abused my blog a little bit, i haven’t written in it at all since i started university. However, contrary to everything else factual and seemingly with integrity i am posting a link to a video that me and a couple of friends made at the student tv society, i hope you enjoy and can give me as many views as possible because so many hours went into this..
