Interests

Hot Docs Film Festival and fanfiction

Journal Entry: Thu Apr 24, 2014, 6:49 AM
That's a lot of F's.

Hot Docs

Next week I'll be attending the Hot Docs Film Festival in Toronto. I won't be screening anything, I am just going as a regular patron and for the experience/networking of course. Supposedly if my short documentary is any good it will screen at special event next year, but we shall see. I know I still have lots to learn regarding documentaries, but I never planned on it being a major part of my film career. As much as I love documentaries, its hard to make one that people will care about or rather, a large amount of people.

Anyway - I will be there from April 27th to May 1st - especially at lot of the networking events, our program handlers want to make sure we get plenty of face time with potential broadcasters. I never realized I'd have so much of a love/hate relationship with the networking side of the industry. As much as I enjoy meeting people, its the small talk that means nothing that always bothers me, it feels needless and awkward and unless I have an alcoholic beverage or two I'm pretty tight lipped. Well...it'll be interesting regardless.

Fan Fiction

People keep asking me if I'm reading stories from fanfiction.net and I said NO. NO NO NO. Give a girl credit, yeesh.
No offense meant, it's just not my cup of tea.
I've been reading at a place called Archive of our own, seems to have more control on what is published - its refreshing. The pieces are well written, well researched and I feel like I'm literally reading novelizations of comics/shows/movies. It's great.
Yesterday I had to ramble at my sister about my excitement, as I know she is one of very few people who will make fun of me for my interests.
Oh and for those men' who speak nerd, but don't read fan fiction - ease up on teasing eh?  I get that's not your thing, but teasing your chick/friend/whomever every chance you get (even absent minded) will earn you no points. And he wonders why I don't talk about my feelings often enough with him. I've grown up with men always teasing me - so its no wonder, but just as advice. The occasional joke is fine, especially if a person walks into it - but not everyday and not every hour. Leave it alone.
And if your curious, I've been reading Marvel fan fiction. Strangely enough, after reading a few stories - I've even wandered back into canon - no, that is not a pairing in my head anymore, they are..as is. Which is weird, I never realized I could do that.

Anyway - I'm done ranting - thanks for reading. I'll go watch the play offs, as thats the only semi - interesting thing on right now, next to GoT.
I'll report back after my trip.
