“I imagined battles in which people wielded poetry instead of weapons. People standing in lines, having a war of the imagination, of words, attempting to influence each other through ideas. And then I think I went astray. I would love to meet my eight-year-old self right now. I would look her in the eye and I’m sure I would burst into tears for the parts of myself that I still recognize, and also for the parts of me I allowed to be corrupted.”—Brit Marling in an interview with Bullett Magazine (via hellyesbritmarling)

To me it means going for it without considering consequence, taking the more adventurous route and not looking back. Just going for it.

So, I’m going to film school, college level film school, as I’m sure you’re all well aware, but something I was unaware of up until moments ago is that though I am indeed at the a collegiate level and a legal adult; I will not be treated like one.
I personally, as in I alone, have scheduled three short films for production with both cast & crew, and have three more on deck over these past few weeks. Along with the countless, shorts I’ve done on my own. I’m able to make professional decisions entirely independently. And I consider myself more than capable of taking care of myself, films and any & all cast and crew. But according to Columbia’s educational system, I’m not.
It’s truly a load of shit. The reason I can’t is I have to turn in everything I’ve already done in my Production class as a packet. everything I’ve already done. everything I’VE ALREADY DONE. The equipment isn’t even that great, but I can’t afford to buy socks, let alone film equipment.
Simply put, I don’t appreciate being treated like a fucking child when I’m putting forth loads of time and effort to plan and prepare to be consider anything but.
