Finally, after what seemed like years (when it's only been months, really), I am officially in winter vacation!
-goes to sleep for 42 hours, but wakes up because I have something else to write here-
As some of you know, this semester, I had to pick a complementary class and I just so happened to pick a cinema class. Let me tell you, it was the best worst mistake ever. See, I was rather content with my choice of going into Computer Science, but the cinema class absolutely reminded me of what my true passion was. I had missed editing videos so damn much! Back in High School, we had to do so much of it in Drama and in English and I was also making nail tutorials during those days. Needless to say, CEGEP (college) had kept me way too busy for me to pursue this kind of stuff. However, as of lately, I have spent countless hours working on the movie we filmed back in November. I could sit at my computer and edit during a whole day without even noticing that hours passed. Every time I had the opportunity, I would end up in the editing room (with and sometimes without the rest of the editing team) and tweak the movie until I was satisfied with how it conveyed the original script.
As of now, the movie's done. We had a fancy movie premiere on December 17th and while the movie was not absolutely perfect in every way, we were all very proud of what we did.
Oh and if I may add, the amount of people who were at our premiere (about 137 people) totally beat the amount of people who went to see Star Wars on the same night at our local movie theatre (a little more than 30 people), so yay us!
Why am I telling you all this, you ask? Well, it's quite simple, really. The movie's out on Youtube and I thought that I might as well share it! Thus, without further ado, I present you L'amant
, a movie about a young man whose romantic partner is not exactly approved by most people.
(Quick warning, the movie is in French, but I actually have an english translation right here
