Pretty much sums up the mood of today!
(not made by me, found it trailing the internet)
I’m not going back to college!
A big decision to be made...
So things over summer haven’t gotten any better! My head’s a mess, I don’t know what I’m doing or where I’m going and it’s led to me having to make a big decision… Do I go to college this year or do I not? There are so many issues to sort out. If I go to college I’ll have to start the year living on my mums sofa (not the most desirable living...
Something to keep us busy over summer? →
Plenty opportunities for over summer… jobs competitions etc..
Britain in a day →
Britain in a day… BBC got people to film and submit what they did on the 12th of November 2011. After loads of submissions they pulled it all together into one long piece. Really really enjoyable. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p00kqz5p - some more info and links..

Hey saw this and was wondering if anyone want to join me in taking part in this? I think it could be a right laugh!
Final Evaluation of FMP
Although my final is piece is not entirely what I wanted from this project I’m still proud of what I achieved given the personal circumstances that I have had to deal with throughout the project. I have had to deal with so many aspects within my own mental health that have taken me to extreme highs and lows but I have still managed to produce a final piece and exhibit my work which is a massive...
I’m finding it really hard to evaluate in my current state of mind. Everything is just so negative…
My statement of intent - In the head of my mental...

Too hard to continue...
So Neil said that I could continue working on my video up until my hand in day (tomorrow) but I just couldn’t. I’m so exhausted and there are things going on in my life that are just making it too difficult to carry on. Looking at the video now makes me hurt inside. It’s just too painful to carry on. I think it’s a chapter that I’m going to put on hold for a while. I...

linking a drawing bit with smoking clips and paper opening and closing. I love how the paper and smoking scene are overlayed. The paper when opening up starts to get to the smoking scene before closing back up again. My Mum doesn’t know i smoke, it’s like I’m not ready to tell her that yet (even though she’ll see if she comes to the exhibition)
2 videos overlapping. played around with opacity levels and changed speeds. one video is 400% normal speed and the other 200%. I think i need to play around with the levels of opacity to balance both videos out a bit, too much white at the moment… I like the pace of both videos together, think they work well. Need to turn around the drawing so that it’s not upside down. Getting...
Rendering issues :( →
Ok so i tried rendering at the same quality as the source material, but that changed the file type into an .MXF file. I tried to watch the file but it won’t work on VLC or any other playback format. So googled the issue and found the above. I think I’m just going to have to lower my standards with the time that is (or isn’t) left. So far the video quality playback have been ok....
Time to start the final journey!
Right, it’s a week until the exhibition, which is when im going to hand in my final piece… I’ve been playing around with different editing techniques, and have come to realise that I want to try and convey a journey. Since my breakdown in September 2011 I’ve been on a massive journey into the unknown with regards to my mental health. I want to convey that in my video, that...
