Man, I rock at this game

Thu Nov 20, 2014, 9:51 PM

If that game is called Badly Neglecting DA. 

Since my last journal, I've gone from dreading work to basically wondering why the fuck they even hired me because I haven't gotten a call in over a week now. :| I had two solo shifts right off the bat that were entirely non-eventful and actually went really well... but now it's been so long that I have no idea how I'm supposed to retain any of it. Relief work is a mind boggling mystery. I assume it'll pick up with people start taking off their Christmas holidays. Hopefully. I have a whopping four hour shift on Saturday night, which doesn't START until 8pm. :lol: Who organizes this crap. 

My parents went to visit my aunt and uncle last week, and took the dog with them, expecting me to get called in to work, but never mind that. :slow: So I actually spent my free days doing roughly nothing and playing video games. Finished Heavy Rain (which is a brilliant experience, worth replaying to get all the alternate endings) and also got Dead Rising 2, which is just mindless zombie killing fun. 

Otherwise my short film is hopefully coming together. I've had minor snafus getting my cast and crew together, but it's seems to be working out slowly but surely. I've got a death (doom? idk, some soft moody vocals, some screaming) metal duo doing the music, and also volunteered to take on make-up duties as well, since the girl I had planned before dropped, not realising the shoot was in Penticton. I have two actresses from Kelowna... one seems kinda flaky, but I hope she'll be all right, she is a high school student though; the other is absolutely perfect for the role and is shockingly well connected, so I think I'll get along great with her. The guy is going to be played by one of my supervisors at work. :lmao: I wound up having a conversation with him and asking if he knew any actors and lo and behold, he used to help run a drama program. I'm having a production meeting on Saturday, but my actresses can't make it out -- ergh -- but hopefully I can at least get one of them on Skype since I was hoping to run everyone through the storyboard. It'll be good to touch base with the musicians though. All goes well, we'll be shooting the last weekend of November.  

The other thing my life has been revolving around recently is -- shocker! -- hitting the gym. My dad and I committed to start going together every other day, so basically I'm just sore all the time now. But feeling good. Hope to lose weight soon, but seeing results already with muscle building. I start out with 5km on the rowing machine, sometimes a bit on the treadmill and/or cross trainer, then try to do a few rotations on the machines I've taken a liking to for 45 min or so.

This is all I can pretty much process at the moment, but England is possibly going to be a thing early next year, haven't heard anything else script-related yet, nothing else of note to report.

Can't believe Christmas is happening again. What is this madness?

My name's Alanna, but people here mostly know me as Snappy.
For that reason, I get a lot of people thinking I'm a man. This, I am not.

I have lived in Calgary, CAN, Vancouver, CAN, and London, UK.
I get a new tattoo every time I move to a new city. It wasn't intentional. It just ended up that way.
I intend to move to many more cities.

As you can tell by looking at my gallery, I used to do traditional and digital art, but I haven't done either in years.
I still do photography, but that is on the backburner while I focus on my writing career.

I am currently a contracted screenwriter for NGN Productions, a company in LA. I won't call myself a "professional" until they pay me on the first day of pre-production.
I have four projects in development right now, including a remake of Orson Welles' The Stranger (1946). I release updates here as I am permitted.

Feel free to add me on Facebook or Twitter! (Just let me know who you are.)…!/shadow0nthesun

I just love your HDR photos; They are very tasteful! Not the Heavily Destructive Retouching you see elsewhere.. Do you use your camera's bracketing function for them? Keep up the good work.
Snapperz Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2014   Writer
Haha, thank you, I try not to go overboard with it. 
Yes, bracketing and shot burst all the way. :nod:
