I've decided to make these blog posts more casual as it would probably be easier than refining each entry before posting. Hopefully this will encourage more frequent posting but only time will tell.
Anyways, I have been home for about two months since leaving college. Whether or not I will write a post on my thought process for that decision is up in the air as of now. In the mean time, I finished my film Surviving the Notch 3. It's a little funny that my last blog post was about my attendance to my first film festival for Surviving The Notch 2, and this post is kind of about Surviving the Notch 3.
The Notch 3 has already been selected for two festivals. So far one is an online festival, Direct Monthly Online Film Festival, and the other is based in West Virginia, the CARE Awards. This is pretty exciting as it's my first film two be featured at two different film festivals.
The concept of film festivals is strange. Besides bragging rights, the acceptance into a film festival doesn't do much. I admit that the laurel that I add to my thumbnails does look nice, but the traditional goal of film festivals is to network. Not much networking can be done from online film festivals, and many festivals that have physical events don't notify about submission status until very close to the event date. It is all very weird to me, but nonetheless it is still an honor.
I guess this blog update has turned into a brief thought rant about film festivals so I apologize for the lack of direction.
