Since I live in the UK, getting streetpasses on my 3DS takes effort. The most I’ve ever got when I was walking around London was seven or eight, and that was on a Bank Holiday.
Then I found this thing yesterday and it’s made things all too easy for me now. I’ve made my Macbook into a hotspot for my 3DS and I get ten streetpasses most of the time when I put in a command.
It’s crazy, I’ve gotten over 100 streetpasses in a day thanks to this.
For the past year in my course, I’ve worked on sound design for all of the projects (bar one, in which I was the producer).
Now I’m fine with my role, because it was something that I chose willingly. And I’m glad I could help the directors I’ve worked with achieve his or her vision. In fact, I told my last director that her documentary* was her baby and I was the midwife.
But I’ve decided not to do sound for the next few projects. There’s nothing to learn at all, production itself is absolutely boring, and it’s a generally a dead end in creativity.
I sincerely hope I’ll pick a different role next term. (Hopefully, it’ll force the others in my course how important sound is to film.)
*I’m not sure when I’m allowed to show or link the documentary, but I think this is the best thing I’ve done in a while.
