I met Anne Marie at the Costa Coffee located in the Manchester Piccadilly area. We were meeting today to discuss my preparation for my placement with Dreamscope Tv and to discuss what I hoped to achieve with both with the placement and what I what I wanted to do after the Foot in the Door Scheme.
We met inside at 1pm and begun our conversation. I told Anne Marie that I was hoping to get a hands on experience with the company and have the opportunity to use the equipment and gain the knowledge to understand how to use certain equipment for future use. Anne-Marie suggested that I message Darren of Dreamscope and organise a meeting so I could have a better knowledge of my role in the team and what I would be doing during the festival. It would also give me an insight into how a film company like Dreamscope get involved with projects and commericalise their work and activities.
Anne-Marie began to ask me what I it was film making was my career goal in life. I explained to her that I was an Actor first but I wanted to expand and stretch my creativity into different aspects, contain many skills in both writing and directing. I have always been keen in film making, having worked on a number of short films and television sets as an extra I have always been fascinated by the director and his teams ambition in telling a story and using a variety of techniques and experimentation. I feel that with film making I could share a story with people not just in the Northwest but around England at festivals and trying to always create something new and unexpected that you knew you had.
Anne-Marie appeared impressed by my ambition and the methods I was using to keep active as a creative person and suggested a few options that could help me develop.
