Hello there, I finally got around to post a new entry, I’ll just kind of write about stuff I’ve been doing the last three weeks or so.
First of I ended my stay at the European Film College, it was rather sad, especially because some of the friends I’ve made live in other countries. On the other hand, staying in touch is easier than ever with Facebook, Skype, etc. The last week on the school was awesome, we didn’t really have anything to do, the only real thing that was planned was the screening of our final projects, so we just partied.
My movie didn’t really turn out that good, our main problem was the actors, we had two kids and two adults, the actor playing the dad was very good, the other three kind of sucked. Also, since it’s a sci-fi we kind of had to built a convincing set and we only had 1500 DKK for the entire project, but the end result was still satisfying (see pictures in latest entries). It was awesome to see the other final projects though, some of them were really, really good.
As a finale we got to see Nimbus Film’s new movie, Det som ingen ved (What No One Knows) because their owner, Bo Erhardt, is the chairman of the school’s board. Leading role is (surprise, surprise) Anders W. Berthelsen, and it’s a "Oh-my-God-is-the-Danish-government-making-chemical-weapons"-kind of thriller with an added commentary to the Big Brother-like society we’ve come to live in. It’s directed by Søren Kragh-Jacobsen and co-written by Rasmus Heisterberg, Nikolaj Arcel’s writing partner from the EFC. I didn’t really like the movie though, seemed like I had seen it before, just better.
Then I got home, just in time to prepare a little doc-like movie for my mom’s 50-year birthday, which was this friday. It all went down fine. I also got to see Iron Man which was a pleasure to watch, well, until the movie’s third act though. I’m thinking of going to the cinema to see it again. On another note, the fourth season of Lost has started again, and I’m gonna watch the tenth episode this afternoon. The season has really taken off, the start was quite boring, but now it’s great. Since the weather is so nice I’ve also bought a bunch of Ray Bradbury books, more specifically Fahrenheit 451, The Illustrated Man and The Martian Chronicles. Right now I’m reading the Chronicles, it’s a bunch of short stories about mankind’s colonization of Mars, and they all intertwine nicely. The book’s written in 1951, and the stories all take place in 1999 – 2025, kind of funny to read.
