Today I got a blast from the past…
11 years ago I lived in Glasgow in a damp basement, sold naff gifts on Byres Road and volunteered at the Glasgow Film and Video Workshop trying to figure out what I could do with my life. I joined the technical team as I thought I wanted to be a filmmaker and that seemed like a good place to start. This was a big mistake as I watched the producers/administrative volunteers busily running round learning stuff while I hung out in a dark cupboard winding cables round my arms.
Whilst in the cupboard, I met Nadaav, who was similarly bored with his choice. So we made the most of the situation and made a couple of stop frame animations from the equipment we had and the stuff we could find. And he has just Facebooked me out of the blue with the final edited versions! (he since has become a filmmaker – not sure he will put these on his showreel tho…)
(funny that we used Iron Bru bottles on this – very Scottish)
Go see Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol– it is brilliant!
PS – Happy Birthday to my wonderful mum. xxx
