My Weekly Agenda

During the previous year, I rapidly became increasingly lazy and distracted from my ‘hobby life‘ due to working full time and worrying about bills and finances. Nothing much has changed. But this year I have decided it’s TIME. I’m going to THROW myself back into my hobby life of acting and writing fiction.

I’ve made it my goal that I will, by the end of this year, have EPISODE ONE of my Doctor Who Fan Film series done and dusted in script format. That is my goal. My target.

In order to get back on the road towards this, I’ve given myself a whole list of tasks to complete for this week, and indeed EVERY week:

READ:

  1. Learn a new skill
  2. Read 3 Chapters of ‘Stanislavski: Building A Character’
  3. Read a BBC Drama script (acquired from http://www.bbc.co.uk/writersroom)
  4. Read a stage play
  5. Read a short story

WRITE:

  1. 2 Blogs (on here)
  2. 1 Synopsis, Plot or Scene

ADDITIONAL:

  1. Record 1 video diary or VLOG for the week on Youtube (yes, more Vlogs to come!)
  2. Get some general exercise and GET FIT!
  3. Tea and coffee with friends

A rather steep list, but not an impossible one! This will keep me active and pick me back up from the lazy sad git I have become. Although, when I say lazy I mean when I get back home from working 35 hours a week full time. I really want to better my career and skills. There is more for me to do in this world. It’s time I stood up and did it.

QUESTION:

  • Do YOU have a weekly agenda to keep yourself active? If so, what does YOURS include?
  • If not, then what tasks do you wish you WERE doing?

Feel free to leave a comment or reply 🙂

IMMORTALS – No Monsters, just Sexy Men

I’ve just come back from cineworld after watching IMMORTALS – the new greek gore film with lots of fighting and gorgeous half naked men (ooh, just imagine). The film was watchable, but wasn’t quite what I was expecting. For instance, there were no monsters. Now, when you think of Gods an Titans you’d think of old beardy men and women (though not all women with beards) in robes looking down and fighting off great terrible monsters made of rock and lava, or creatures beyond our worst nightmares. The film received none of this.

What I did recieve was a film full of men and women with sexy, druel-over Gods, and Titans that were just men covered in mud paint and action moves. Ok. I can live with the thought of the ‘Gods’ being these perfect looking young men and women – and i’m sure each one would make a terrific poster on my bedroom wall (nom nom nom) – but the fight scenes that ensued made it look more like ’300′ meets Batman, Robin and Batgirl.

I was hoping for some Titans to kick ass; move a few mountains and crush a few villagers. Alas, they remained to fight in their little prison cave.

Still, the leading man playing Theseus, Henry Cavill, (nom nom nom) was able to carry the film all the way.

All in all, enjoyable, watchable, but no ‘man vs big monster‘. More like ‘Man vs lots of other men… with sexy camp costumes’.
