Hello! I’m Hari, and this is Smash Cut To, my weekly newsletter about my adventures in trying to become a comedy writer-director.
As part of my pandemic re-invention, I applied to do a part-time filmmaking course from the Autumn. I had my interview this week, and prepared for all the usual questions — but in the end, we spent most of the time talking about a question I wasn’t expecting: is this course the right one for you?
In the end, we decided that maybe it wasn’t. (Long story short: it’s more general and theoretical than what I probably need.)
I appreciated the honest and open chat, but I felt a bit lost afterwards — because doing the course was part of the plan, and I’m the kind of person that feels very uncomfortable when I don’t have a plan.
But I guess it’s better to endure a little discomfort than stick to doing the wrong thing comfortably. So I’ve started looking at some alternative courses, and hopefully I’ll find one that works for me! 🥳
How’s your week been?
