Finally a new post! I’ve been so busy lately I neglected everyone. Sorry about that!

Everything is going great! I attend a lot of lectures even though they’re not mend for me to follow. I’m also working hard on my animation. I’m lucky I have a team of people that really like my project and work hard for it too. My producer Patricia arranged the equipment, location and all small stuff I forget :p My scriptwriter is working on the episodes and the four I’ve got now are really good. Too bad I can’t manage to make them all and I have to choose which episodes will be made.
I also have to write a critical study of my practice. The main topic of that will be how far I can stretch the limits in children animation. What’s allowed to show children and what isn’t. This week I have to hand in a draft of 3000 words.
I’ve been asked again if I want to take part in a photo shoot next week. This time in daylight and I’ll probably get the photo’s of the first shoot somewhere this week. I really need to die my hair again though -_-‘

Film festival
Yubing and I went to Glasgow last Saturday. There is a film festival going on and Yubing won a free ticket. I went with her to see Glasgow for the first time and to watch some movies. I find Glasgow a very good city to shop and it looks modern which I don't like that much. We were there at 10 in the morning to shop first. I’ve bought finally the bag I was looking for; a red leather baggy bag with particular handles, and a cute children book about phobias.
Yubing went off to see the program of her free ticket and I went to a program with movies made by kids from 9 till 21 years old. It was so creative, funny and nice to watch (and it was free too :p). I really had a great time. After that I walked through the city because Yubing wasn’t finished. We met each other again at some network party of film people/students. I was so tired and wanted to go home but every time we took a few steps there was someone else wanting to talk and have contact details. Everyone was so eager to network! I find it always difficult to do but this time I didn’t have to do anything.
I was back home at 8, hungry, tired but satisfied.
