The Flying Club Cup

image


So I finally did it: found a job I can call my own. I might’ve hit my ass on every step of schlock the film industry has to offer in order to reach this point, but I did it.

In a marketplace where new media is reportedly replacing film – the most successful people in town think of at least six webisodes before breakfast – I’ve somehow managed to snag a job that seems refreshingly old school. I’m reading actual books all day and getting paid for it. Because the company I’m working for is a production machine, I’ll learn a thing or two about development in the middle of all that reading.

And the best part about it, really, is that I did it all on my own. Everybody kept saying, “It’s all about who you know, you won’t find a job without connections, blah blah blah.” But I applied online, nailed the interviews and writing samples, and made that job mine.

Ta da.

You could've just titled this post, "I'm awesome".

I thought of 4 webisodes before I even opened my eyes this morning.
