I have some advice for costume people. Don't design a low budget feature. Only design if you have a budget of about £2million and have a team of about 20 people.

I'm designing a feature film. I haven't slept properly in 2 weeks. I'm incredibly stressed out (however my cool calm exterior remains intact). I don't know if i'm doing a good job or the director is happy. I've had no complaints from cast yet. I can't drive anywhere so it's an everyday stress figuring out how to get into work and how to carry everything into work. My budget is tiny and most of the main cast have 3 costume changes. I can barely afford all their stuff. Then they threw in loads of uniforms to hire. My brain is going to explode!

The cast are all lovely thank god.

Today we had a new character starting who they only cast last night at about 8pm. All I have to say is thank goodness he was happy to wear his own suit for the first day.

My assistant got arrested today because I called her while she was driving. I feel so incredibly guilty.

And as if work wasn't stressful enough i'm having problems with a friend of mine from uni who sent me an incredibly rude email considering I hadn't spoken to her in a month. I sent a rather abrupt email back and she replied with a sob story excuse email. I am so angry about it but I don't have the time to properly sort it out.


One good thing that has happened recently is that I brought a memory foam orthopedic mattress so my back doesn't hurt anymore! It's incredible I recommend it to anyone with bad back.

Hunt for Gollum has now officially been online for 6 and a half hours. There are already over 200 messages on the guestbook from people who have seen it. Exciting stuff.

I saw it yesterday at the premiere screening for cast and crew. It was at the Prince Charles cinema in Leicester Square and everyone wore black tie and dresses. It was so smart! It's a shame the projector and the sound quality weren't great there though. Still awesome. I got called up on stage towards the end to say thank you and got given a copy on dvd and some crew dog tags.

I went today to the world premiere screening at sci fi London. Pretty scary watching it with the first public viewers but I think it went down well. It looked much better on this screen.

I love it so much. I can't believe how good it looks.

I hope everyone likes it as much as me...

I have finally seen The Dark Knight!!!! \o/

It's only taken me 3 months. I refused to see it first on dvd and last night was the Imaxs last showing before february so I went.

It was amazing! That opening shot of flying onto the buildings I really felt like I was flying. The sceneary shots were fantastic on the Imax screen.

Heath Ledger was even better than I was expecting. I knew he would be good because eveyone has told me he was but he was fantastic. He was just so creepy and awesome.

I did feel like there was too much happening in it though. I think I prefer Batman Begins but i'd like to see it again.

And I made my sister love it! She'd not really wanted to see either and I made her watch BB yesterday before we left and she loved that and then she really loved TDK. Sucess!

I just have to say that Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince and Star Trek look awesome. I just watched both trailers and I feel the need to re-read HBP and want to see them now.

Some more shameless promoting I think. Or more of a call for support... But anyway.

Over at http://www.hunt4gollum.com/ they have created a new forum which I only discovered on sunday. Anyway there is some discussions up so far but not many so if you like the look of H4G join and ask questions or just generally talk about LotR.

As for the artists there is a section for fanart and other artwork related to H4G and they're offering for some of the work to be put onto dvd menu's and stuff. And I think they want to do a similar thing to the RotK credits with sketches of the actors/characters.

To find the forum go to the guestbook and there is a link there. (thats how I found the forum because I like reading the guestbook).

And spread the word! Please please please? XD

My favourite bit? When all the past BB contestants got eaten.

The screaming of the main girl got really annoying after 5 mins but I quite enjoyed it (the episode not the screaming). It's not brilliant but I like how it's kind of taking the piss out of itself. I shall definately keep watching the other episodes. It's on everyday so I may get sick of it by thursday or something.

Yep my plan to cycle for an hour everyday and do some general stretches and possibly some crunches stuff like that has gone out the window.

Yeah you see the next 44 weeks are going to be pretty busy I won't have time for it.

Because

I GOT ACCEPTED ONTO FT2!!!

Thats right! My letter came today. Provided I have 2 good references I start on the 29th September. And I made sure my references would be good ones so i'm celebrating now!

Now I need a provisional driving licence, I need to make my dress for Kims wedding now and I need to really sort out my sewing kit!

I'M IN! I'M IN! I'M IN!

This is possibly the greatest livejournal post ever. ferdalump posted over on bale_daily The similarities between Christian Bale and Kermit the Frog. The resemblence in some of the pictures is uncanny! One of my favourites is the Christian and Russel Crowe and Kermit and Grover one.

That has really made my week.

Ok people. In my boredom I decided to make a new business card and I got a bit carried away. I have 1 that I really like and 1 that I quite like. So I ask you:

[ETA] See next post. I did something wrong on this one :s
