Read the post here. Now let us take a look as to how I have done so far.
1) Watch 280 Films
Well, so far I have watched 179 films. That is quite an absurd amount seeing up to this point there has been 167 days (correct me if I am wrong). Trust me, I have skipped films some days. This number includes the watching of new to me this year films being watched 2-3 times also.
2) Watch at least 160 NEW films.
Not far off it already. So far, 155 new viewings have come across my eyes.
3) See at least 70 of the films that come out in 2012
I think this is the toughest goal, that is far too high. So far I have only seen 12 2012 releases. It is the second half of the year I start seeing the years films more frequently.I am guessing I will only see 40.
4) Try and get a review published in a newspaper, or an official film site.
Not much progress on this yet, but I think I will eventually get on a film site.
5) Discover and explore 10 new directors work
This year I have explored David Lynch, Akira Kuroswawa, Quentin Tarantino, Lars Von Trier and Sergio Leone. I knew of Lynch and Tarantino prior to 2012, but I hate to admit, I only watched their films in January. I had only saw one Von Trier film in December, being Melancholia and since have saw others. I am yet to further explore the works of Ingmar Bergman, Federico Fellini, Luis Bunuel, Paul Thomas Anderson, Darren Aronofsky and others.
6) Make at least 5 short films in different genres being Drama, Action, Comedy, Documentary and Mystery & Supense.
At the moment, I have taken part in making two Mystery & Suspense films and a drama. I will be soon making a comedy with a hint of Pulp Fiction influence.
7) Enter a film competition
I will be doing this very shortly.
8) Have over 200 Followers at my blog
It seems I am not even half way to it yet :( Please follow readers.
9) Gain 200 Subscribers at YouTube
At my new channel IndieHouseFilms, my team have 45 subscribers as of this moment. Still building.
10)Start writing a film related book
I have started, but have not finished as I feel it is a waste of time. I will wait until I am in my 20's to embark on such things.
11) Expand my DVD/Blu-Ray collection to 200
I am well over this now.
Well, it seems I am not far off achieving some of these. Any thoughts?
