Wow... it's been so long since I was here. I can't remember when I last came here but I had an unread PM from February 2006 so it was at least a year. Think it may have been 2 years. Wow.

So.... what have I been doing with myself, might you ask? Well, in August 2005 I went to film school in California (I'm from the UK). Film school was a real life-changer for me and I decided to not go to university in the end and pursue a career in the film industry. So, to cut a VERY long story short, I ended up setting up my own post production business out in the States with the hope of getting a visa out here. I'm still waiting for my application to be processed (it takes AGES) so hopefully it will all work out. If I don't get it, my life isn't ruined but it makes things a lot harder.

In the meantime, my good friend and roommate from film school directed an indie feature film that my company worked on. The film is SO crazy. It remains, to date, the only film I've ever cried whilst watching (I came CLOSE in United 93). You'd think the budget was 3 times higher than it actually was. I know it's going to do well for my friend, and hopefully for my company by association.

So I haven't had much free time lately what with all these goings on. Right now I'm in the UK so I'm far away from the action (that's good and bad) and have a lot more free time at present. I remembered the fun times we used to have and how I'd literally laugh out loud 3 or 4 times a day when browsing this forum. Funtimes.

I don't think I can be the regular poster / contributor I once was, but I will try to be around as much as I can.

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.

Give a man religion and he'll sit there, praying for fish, until he and his family starve to death.

lol yeah i know. I'm gonna try and keep that from happening this time. I'm gonna set it to my homepage so that way I have no excuse not to stop by and at least catch up with everyone once in a while.
