Things to do – 2005.
# Meet with my wonderful team and come up with a game plan to shoot with least amount of money before night shift ends.
# Do my bit towards the relief work. Hope to spend time in Nagapattinam and Cuddalore for at least four days after this night shift ends. Heard there’s a shortage of volunteers.
# Also spend as much quality time as possible with Ms.Sphinx cuz I just love spending time with her. Yes, I don’t know where it’s going but the journey is always more exciting than the destination, right? 🙂
# Finish my pending stories for Metro Plus. Damn!
# Get something nice for my parents. Their anniversary’s happening on 26th this month.
By end of the year:
# Get organised. Like, learn to wake up at the right side of the noon.
# Get back to gymming but that’s after movie, cuz I’m bound to lose weight during shoot.
# Start and finish my second film, whether or not the first gets complete.
# Get my own editing set-up established at home. Additional cost: Rs.20,000
# Buy myself a 3-CCD Mini DV camera from Singapore. Total Cost: Rs.80,000
# Learn driving and buy a car, which means I need a new job. Cost: Rs.1,20,000 (second-hand)
# Float my company, Made In Madras InkOperated, which will produce every first time filmmaker’s dream. But first, guys, let me make mine 😛
# Hope to love and be loved. Now, who wouldn’t want that? 🙂
Hmmm! Simple needs huh?
hm… interesting list there…look back at this mid-year and ponder how much u’d done.
Ms. Sphinx???ah ha!!! No wonder you thought i had a “school girl bubbly personality”;-))so what does Ms. Sphinx do???:p
as for the rest, hmmmmm……i think having a Plan B and Plan C and Plan D helps??maybe that way you can cheat the jinx?? 😐
Good plans… Stick onto them N be confident that you can achieve them N i m sure you will get much more than that.. All the best ma…..
Hey, Happy New Year, man!
And Good Luck for your ‘stuff to do’!
Hope your plans work out!
And then, I can become the first beneficiary of Made In Madras InkOperated!!!
Thanks man! This is supposed to be challenging yet realistic list of targets…
so, yeah lets see!
lets just say she works as an angel and her full time job is making me asthmatic! he he!
she’s got multiple personality disorder too, so sometimes she’s like this little brat chirpy and bubbly, sometimes totally glum and gloomy sending me frownies, sometimes like this super scientist rationalising everything and sometimes the spirited free flowing child… whether she is sweet or sour, there’s always a halo around her head to remind the world she’s an angel, especially when the horns begin to show! he he!
milkman!! welcome home!
maaplai, wat a surprise. thank u thank u thank u! 🙂
get ur script ready… I’m here for any help u want in developing it.
as long as there is no Captain bashing in it, it should get approved for production!
p.s: also, when u write ur first film, think low budget. If u can, think no budget!
oh wow!!!wonder what she’d say if she knew you were saying such nice things about her!!does she know??that you’ve written such nice things abt her, i mean?can i tell her?
No no no…don’t tell her.
It wud go straight to her head and those horns might just grow! he he! 😛
oh yeah…simple needs indeed!!!
gawd…what a shallow creature she is…
How about starting a ‘Scripts Shoppe’? I mean, instead of making movies,can’t we sell nice and novel stories to good film makers?
film kaami pa, intha varshamavathu… wait panni, panni, tired ayiduchu… all the best.
He he! i know teddy! 😛
Dare you say somethin like that bout my angel!
Only I reserve that right! he he! 😛
You wanna set up a Script Shoppe and sit back and watch how they fuck it up huh?
Script is the raw material for a film alrite but does not guarantee a good film! Imagine you give them sugarcane, wat if they throw away the juice and chew on the rest?? Most of these guys are bull not cow, man… no matter wat you give them, they’re just gonna give you wonly dung!
good things are worth the wait!
