I’ve always liked the idea of having a blog, and now here I am.
As you may or may not know, my names Richard Joe James and I’m an aspiring young film-maker. I come from a fantastic town called Chesterfield but have been studying at university in York. I’m about to return to my second year, and I’m feeling more driven than ever, so I thought it was about time I set up some sort of online space that I can dedicate to my projects and can document my journey through the risky waters of film production. I also wanted to feel a little bit more professional than just my twitter and facebook(although feel free to look me up on there or send me a personal message if you want to) as well as a place to set up an e-portfolio of my projects. I had been thinking of doing it for a while now, but after spending a day at a Channel 4 4Talent event I was particularly inspired to get this going and share my story. It’s never too early to get a bit of name branding going.
So what am I going to do here? I guess I don’t exactly know yet. I plan on keeping it updated with how my projects are going, share things that are inspiring me lately and share as much knowledge as I can, and just be honest about how challenging yet fulfilling some of this work can be. Hopefully I’ll have some fantastic stuff to share soon, I’m very excited about the projects that I have coming up, especially having my first go at directing a film with The House, but there’s plenty of time to tell you all about, so for now I’ll just say hello, and thanks for checking this out!
And always feel free to leave a comment.
