It feels weird and strange not being a student. It is also bittersweet, because now that means I have to find a new life as a worker. All my life I always been a student and never actually pictured not stopping. Sounds strange, but I always loved being in an environment that involves education and also combining passionate subjects. Like for me it has always been films.
All my life I always wanted to have a career in films. Mainly because I always used to watch films when I was a kid. I always had this fantasy every time I would go to the cinema that I was in this movie, or that I wished that I was in this movie. It always excited me that each movie I had watched whether it was good or bad always had a special moment for me.
For example, the first movie I ever saw on the big screen was Jurrasic Park 3. Now the film isn’t all that great, but it had that’special moment with me because it was the first time I had experienced a true cinema experience. I never forgot that.
It was because I always wished I got to screen my film on the big screen and that dream became true when I screened my short film The Program to an audience.
It was a dream come true for me. I had never expected that it would happen. It was a short film, but it was a big thing for me, because I got to screen it at the cinema.
The question is now what do I do? The answer is simple. I am going to make my first feature film. It is an ambitious stake to commit to straight after university. But it is a risk that I am willing to take. I am excited and panicked at the same time. That is a sign of a good idea. Keep an eye on my blog as I will update my journey as a feature film director from start to finish.
