I'm not even sure why I volunteered my services. While I doubt anyone else is reading this, I'll give a brief explanation in case some poor sap happens to wander in my mad little world.
Having just started at my university where I'm studying BSS, majoring in Media Studies, I discovered part of my assignment quota for Media Studies was to make a movie. Not so bad to do on my own to be honest, but unfortunately, we had to do it in a group. Fine by me, I'm good at groups. Unfortunately, I drew the short straw. I now find myself begging the other group, which happens to be composed of my friends, to kick their errant member out and let me join. Three of my group's members are idiots, and out of the other three, our group leader is a domineering, controlling bitch. Seriously.
So I could easily bow out and do some random task like directing to be honest. But my pride in my craft refuses to let me do otherwise. How is it possible that a group I am a part of has a shitty script? Preposterous!
I can't believe I'm wasting my talent on a bunch of losers. And its a brilliant script I tell you. It's about a kid that becomes a drug addict and it touches a sore spot for me because my best friend was once an addict. And there's nothing noble or grand about it, but what is grand is that he detoxicated on his own. While still not sober-recreational drugs are fun, I hear-He can go weeks without drugs an spend the money on you know, actually feeding himself. He's come a long way in these four years, and my heart swells with pride when I think about it. But it doesn't always work out that way and that's what I want t oshow people to be honest. I want to make a difference.
Lets hope I do that without kicking the crap outta my entire group. Ugh. If it isn't bad enough that I have to figure out how to write a script without any professional training...
