Gearing up…

24 May

Righto, so I am all prepared to get straight back into the whole filming thing!

Sometime this week we’ll be doing a photoshoot for Pure Modesty, and filming will begin in the early weeks of July. Rpisode One will hopefully be ready for my 17th birthday, by roughly around 19 July.

Now, it might not have the audience of OSM – but that’s okay. It will certanly have an impact on people – and I know for a fact that some of my friends and family will be shocked at the things that will bew happening, because it’s so out of character for me!
So that July deadline for the pilot is really soon. Season 1 will be five episodes long. If it proves to be popular, we will do another season 🙂

So I’m going to get back into the script. This was just an update to show things are moving ahead! 🙂

So, you can help out by buying one of the following things I’ve put up on auction:


Teacher Kyle

22 May

It’s quite fun being a teacher you know. Yes, a teacher!
Every Thursday afternoon we have film class. And Mr. Johnson heads it, but the class it split into three groups who are out and about doing their own things (film wise) and each has their own classroom and leader. But there’s a bit of a story behind the three groups.

The class was going to be split into two groups – the Seniors and the Juniors. Somehow, Ryan & I were put into the juniors group – !!!
The senior guys – all the same year as me (Yr 12) were at the back, being stupid so meh. The juniors were at the front being kinda nerdy, and my group sat in the middle, in serious discussion.
I was going to be in the juniors, with a Year 10 leader who knew nothing about film! I was not going to stand for that, I’d go insane! So I had a chat and luckily, my little group split into it’s own so three groups were born. That’s the little story behind the groups.

So we have our own classroom with projector and about two dozen computers. The guys sit down (mainly Year 9s) and we go though camera angles, etc. Today we went over the plot of our film – titled Crossroads. It was a film I was going to create with Zieland Productions, but instead I transferred it to the school. The group agreed to make films under the “TUIKIWI Productions” label and I was fine with that, seeing as I’m editing and directing the project. But I’ve got the guys doing some work too – for example, Ryan is writing the project, and Luke is going to be a cameraman.

Speaking about cameras – we’re filming HD! The cameras we are using are HD. Amazing. The first TKP HD film! Haha! So I’ll be learning something too.

So today I ran a little quiz in class and organised the roles. Now I just need to get a few things prepared for next week, which is when we start filming. And it’s such a buzz to be teaching lol! Not a career path – at this stage, but it’s been fun.

Exceptional Service

20 May

The iPod Nano I brought last year was the lastest model out.
And one of the super-cool features, was supposed to be this: You turn the iPod on it’s side, and all the albums come up so you can flick though and find the one you want. But it never worked for me!
So I sent my scratched and slightly dented iPod to TotallyMac last week, and they confirmed the fault and emailed me to say a replacement part was ordered.
This morning, I recieved a brand new iPod in the mail! No scratches or dents, and works perfectly! I am very impressed 😀

What isn’t exceptional is the freezing weather, and I think it’s fair to say freezing! It really is cold. This is true coldness! Brrrr.

So that’s all I have to blog about today. Oh, OUTRAGEOUS FORTUNE will air from Tuesday June 2nd, 9.30pm on TV3. Great news 😀

Windows 7

18 May

Well I’ve upgraded to Windows 7! It did not take long for everything to be back to normal….as soon as I installed Firefox, I was shocked to see that without doing anything, all my bookmarks, passwords, extentions etc were all there! Amazing.

Everything is perfect so far, I love it! The only downside is I need to reinstall the Graphics Card driver, and Dad has it at the moment. I’ll do that after school.

But seriosuly, try Windows 7. It’s super fast, clean, and just so nice to use. Unlike Vista, which was a nightmare as soon as I installed it.
