So today was a busy day full of fear and loathing.
I had my first full work day as an unemployed college graduate.
Searching for work, any kind of work, is really depressing. You write down the same information a bunch of times, and you realize how all your work experience is completely unrelated to each other and the jobs you’re applying for.
But they don’t call this the 30 DAYS OF FEAR for nothing! ONWARD!
I was able to get a hold of some of Alan Moore’s latest work which are his two films Jimmy’s End and Act of Faith, made with Mitch Jenkins.
It’s hard to give Alan Moore’s work a fair review without giving spoilers. I knew what it was walking into the short film, so the experience wasn’t quite as fresh for me. If you do manage to get to this film before you know what it is, I’m sure you’ll want to re-watch it, plus take a look at the much more disturbing prequel Act of Faith.
What is Alan Moore trying to tell us? It’s clear he’s trying to have fun, stay out of the big media industry, and celebrate his hometown of Northampton. But beyond that, it’s Alan Moore dipping into his spiritually, trying to make sense of the world he will soon be sixty years old in. Or maybe he’s made sense of it, and just trying to tell us what he found.
Through scantily clad women.
For more insight into Alan Moore’s views on things check out The Mindscape of Alan Moore. I find it to be pretty inspiring, and it’s worth a watch.
Other than that, I’ve been trying to keep creative. I wrote a really crappy scene, which helped me figure out where I need to go with this play. I need a back story to these characters. It’s been something I constantly fear when writing. And what better way to tackle it, than to make it a part of the 30 DAYS OF FEAR!!!
