Broader Horizons

I’ve been away this week with almost no access to films to watch or video games to play so I’ve spent most of my time writing stuff.

I began this blog as an exercise when I was at college. It focussed on media studies, especially Film & TV, and continued throughout Uni, then increasingly focussed on Film throughout my time at LFA. More recently, the blog has highlighted my attempts to find a job whilst, I now realise, the majority of my life these past few months, has been immersed in gaming other than when I’m writing.

I realise this because the jobs I have been gravitating towards are for gaming companies rather than in film. You know that I love Rooster Teeth, right? Well, I’m going to RTX London this month but I’ve also applied to work with Rock Star Games (London) and Jagex (Cambridge). Imagine working within the world of GTA, LA Noire (new release coming soon) and with a hint of a possibility of some involvement in the long awaited sequel to Red Dead Redemption! Or Runescape! Jagex’s UK offices are about as awesome as those typically seen in California’s ‘Silicone Valley’ – and their work ethos seems to be something I’d love to be part of.

It’s a long shot but, well… positivity and optimism. So I’ve cast my jobseeking net wider and, to be honest, the non-film-making companies seem more suited to me.

In other news, at the end of last month I went to see the stage play of the old Ealing (black) comedy film, The Ladykillers. I was probably the youngest person in the theatre, on or off stage! Thoroughly enjoyable though.

That’s all for now folks!
