2010. It has been a superb year! I’ve had a great time at university. The first year went really well. The second year has been good so far, but it’s been a lot of hard work. I spent so many late nights working up until four in the morning, just so I could get all of my assignments handed in on time!
Thankfully, I did get everything handed in on time and right now, I’m just enjoying my winter break. AND I’m suffering from teenage withdrawal symptoms. Yes, I’m a man now. Turned 20 over a week ago. Playtime is over. Having said that, I have been playing Football Manager 2011 recently. Very good game. Got it last month as a present. Currently managing Liverpool, who else? Into the second half of my first season in charge of the Reds, and I’m fourth in the league. Hopefully, I’ll actually win some silverware!
In May, I created my first ever computer animation film called Escape, a machinima film made largely by myself, with the welcomed contributions of my friends Omar Lodhi and Mohammad Dinul Haque. This was part of our coursework for one of our modules at university, but this still proved to be an entertaining spectacle!
Two months later, I went to London to attend a TV Production Training course at the London Academy of Media, Film and TV. During the five-day course, I created a fictional documentary called Heatwave: London. I have considered doing another course there next year, so we’ll see what happens! It was a fantastic experience and a lot of fun!
After the summer came to a close, I’ve been studying ever since. I haven’t had time to make any new films recently, but I’m hoping I will get more opportunities next year. It’s been a fantastic year though, and hopefully 2011 will be even better. Another year later, and it’ll be the London 2012 Olympics! Surely there’s got to be a chance to film something then! Yes, that’s two years away. Well, I’m sure something will pop up next year!
Anyway, I hope you had a great year, just like I did and hopefully we’ll have many more great years to come!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
