Good going! Sometimes it's discouraging to work (making a living), go to school, and make a personal live. I fell out of it 4 times (school) and realized my mistake this very last time; each time there was a work crunch, I gave up several class sessions (might be just a week or two) and each time managed to fall behind enough that I failed. Finally made school my priority over work - School is what will make me, work just does it for someone else.


I won't be able to keep the job I have now because I'm going to school about four hours from where I live. I'm applying for grants, but I'll have to start looking for another job. Hopefully I can find one on campus. I hate money. Actually, I hate the lack of money. Anyway, school will be my first priority and I'm not even going to think about having a personal life until after I graduate, or at least until I get acclimated with everything. Thank you for the good advice, though.

well forty-something, let's see it's 2004 so I must be -er- 46. Those worried about what to do after college should just go for something they enjoy, life's too short. I used to be an engineer and my hand-crafted creations graced the heavens and the depths of the oceans (okay I used to build bits of subsea telecoms kit and broadcast satellites). Now I spend all day looking at spreadsheets, which is still fun in a weird way.

I could also produce a map of the world with shiny blobs showing all the firefly fans, if they sent me their zip/ post codes, using a program called Mapinfo, I've got most country codes except for Thailand and Ireland. But putting it on the web is harder, as you'd just get a huge picture, not something zoomable. It comes out in .jpg or .wmf format I think. Maybe others.

Last night my daughter (age 11) got me with "and here's a funny thing - No" when we asked her to go to bed. We tried very hard not to laugh but failed.

Uh, I am 23, feel older, tired. This is my last semester for a BA (History and Political Science double major) at the Univ. of Houston. Lord help me, I have not a clue what I will be doing past summer. Well, maybe a some idea. I'm sure it will involve me having what I like to call the "Rent and Beer Money Plus" standard of living. It is basicly what it sounds like: the beer is decent, I have enough to eat well--although basicly hand to mouth--and I might have health insurance, might not.

I'm another old timer I guess. 40. My bio is already listed at my movie website, so anyone can check it, and learn about me and the movie I produced here:

Hello there,

New to posting but not to reading so I guess I'll fess up on this question.

I'm 31, have degrees in History and International Relations so of course that means I wound up working on a ranch.

Yeah well I like smacking 'em. It does make for some "Whubba wha?" conversations when I go back home to visit and run into people I knew in college and high school and they ask what I'm doing these days. Cowboy isn't something that many people back east think of when they look through the classifieds.

Pain is scary...

35 next month. I'm a very patient person - one other half who is now writing up his PhD in bio nano something or other, after doing a degree and then a masters degree (8 years in total - see very patient)one 11 year old daughter who actually made me watch FF and I was hooked after one episode, two furry creatures who apparently are cats although I'm sure one of them was a dog in a previous life!
As for who's flying this thing - you got me there, no clue whatsoever but mostly its fun, so enjoy it! And as for a direction in life I'm now considering going to University to study Archaeology or maybe Ancient History. If he ever gets this blooming PhD thesis written............

Mac,

how is the movie making business, as far as
for independent producers (I am assuming)?

How does it work when you are generating
cash up front? lining up the distribution
channels and getting them into the theatres
and other merchandizing / distribution efforts?

Nothing is easy in the movie making business, but if you believe in the project, and in the people you are working with, it's a blast!

Working on an indie project is like working without a net. You don't have the deep pockets of a studio backed project, but you have so much more freedom. I won't go into details, but being that it was a very low budget movie, we managed to keep costs down and production value up by being under the radar.

We are just now finishing post production, and had no pre-sale distribution deal. We have to promote it on our own, and try to get the best deal so that our financier gets some return on his investment.

The best way we know to promote this, is to get the word out to the industry. That means special screenings and film festivals.

We will have our first test screening this weekend at the Femme Fatales magazine convention (April 24-25) at the Burbank Hilton. Our screening will be free on Saturday night, but a paid admission the the convention that day is required.

You can check out their web site for more information, and if you live in or near L.A. come out and check out our movie.
