My girlfriend listened to these guys over and over for WEEKS. Then eventually I ended up getting into sound. Definitely going to be stitching some of this into my videos when the chance presents itself (maybe the BTS video of my time here in the states). I thought the live footage of them used on the Brit awards was pure GARBAGE. Broadcasters are losing the plot, but it leaves freelance ‘new directors’ (like myself) with a chance to show them how it’s done.
I've been following you for quite some time and I often peruse your blog for inspiration. I'm a film student and though I'm not terrible, I'm not the best either and for years I've been allowing that to hold me back from trying, saying that I need to learn more, do more research. Which of course led me back to your blog, especially your earliest post. Then 100 pages in, it hit me. Stop scrolling and grab my gear and go. Thank you. For being so open with your experiences and being so awesome.
Well thanks a lot! It’s good to know that my content serves as inspiration for readers like yourself. When this blog started it was vastly different than it is now, so there has been a definite progression over time. I’m happy with what it stands for now, and this year I’m hoping to do more articles on my experiences, along with reviews of stuff I carry with me out in the field etc. There will be more user content and inspirational posts when possible. That being said I do try to keep the human aspect of this blog very real. In other words, I like people to know that it comes from the stance where it’s here to help.I believe with the right frame of mind anyone can achieve the things they dream of doing.
As for ‘holding yourself back’, I think we all experience that at some point. It’s easy to ‘do it later’ but the real challenge lies in doing it there and then (or at least making a start). I am no saint in that department still, and truth be told I don’t think anyone really is perfect; but it is something I actively try to deal with. There’s no time like the present to work towards the things which you feel most passionate about. Thanks for reading and spread the good word of thatfilmduderyan.com
