Second Documentary

Helllow universe

I finally finished the second documentary with my good friend and writer Marcela Hervia about the homeless issue in Manchester. (About 3 weeks a go but haven’t got time to blog!) When me and Marcela finished the first video it wasn’t any news about any good shelter for them but now there are news that empty buildings will be open for them so hopefully the promises are genuine and we won’t see anyone sleeping rough in this cold winter.

The main thing for me that kept me thinking A LOT is seeing young people on the streets that is not good for the future of a city because those young people are the future. In any situation they need help and direction and I hope they will be taken seriously to be out of the streets and get their lives back.

I don’t know why being homeless became a badge and the forever dark at the end of the tunnel when as a human we know life has ups and downs and everybody deserve help and chances to live as long as they are breathing.

I will write about it soon but … yeah … it just broke my heart watching people living in the streets in the Manchester and as it gets worst from more than 5 years a go till now.

I also made a short comedy animation from one of my short pieces at Commonword Identity writing workshop.

It will be screened at CAN‘s “Community Spirit” event at Mad lab and in Filmonik at old corner house (MMU) and I will upload in youtube soon.

I just invite everyone to watch my documentary just below and let’s not think about the BUSY schedule before Christmas and … yeah I’m fine and I will write about it soon.

Summer Time Is Near …

Hello Universe!

Summer is near … ๐Ÿ™‚

When sometime has passed is so hard to start to write about what is going on in my life specially when it’s just too much!

The good news is most of it is good news! …. and now I am repeating myself, I meant is good news.

I decided to study animation and starting university again … but with a package of “Directing Theatre” Associate Degree and “Digital Visual Artist” experience.

So all fantastic at the moment.

Still my housing is an issue but now that I know I want to start life at university from September I will live near city centre, by the way I have an appointment tomorrow and I hope I get more settle so I can do better in my job interview!

About job interview, I had one in M&S clothing. They did a role play, 5 minutes to read through 4 pages of foods with ALL details plus three pages of the role when I applied for a clothing store and they ask me to fully serve a customer in 10 minutes !!! And It was my FIRST experience about food???? And I applied for clothing branch …

To be honest I can’t stop thinking about it and I will call them this week to just give them my feed back that how fair is it if I ask them to edit with AE and they have only 10 minutes … how do they will feel and how fair is to ask someone to do the WHOLE job in 10 minutes?!

Let’s end the complaining and looking forward to something that called “Lab Project” and I have to make them understand a roof top of my head is more necessary than doing some self confidence workshop when I am working on a workshop to finish a video?!

YUP mission for tomorrow to getting up early, getting the 11A at 9 a.m towards new places experience …

P.S I can’t think of eating Mc Donald AGAIN but what choice do I have, that’s what I can afford with no job when M&S expect you to serve customer with butternut in their clothing branch and “Lab Project” will listen to you with drama and you think of a roof after years of serving universe … I deserve a roof … universe … don’t you think!

more P.S I did a good planning to what make me happy and hope it works!

Konnichiwa Universe …!

So Finally the Amaterasu animation project about the lovely deity of the sun finished.

Had the meeting yesterday and it got the road for the future and hopefully movies.

Again thanks to amazing Yuko and my amazing work place CAN ๐Ÿ™‚

There is lots to do now to focus every thing, beside one of the animations that i animated a heart and it looks SO natural and I am so happy about.

My study schedule doesn’t look really good and it really needs time and working that I couldn’t do enough these days.

It’s not that bad but from my point of view am I satisfied? … NOPE. and that’s the thing.

I need work as much as I am satisfied and I need more planning.

but in the mean time it’s a pause and breathe that will help whole the thing.

๐Ÿ™‚

I have to finish this post soon, need to get home early and I really like productive days.

So yes it’s done by me but the story of JPN mythology just began.

The meeting today with Yuko Howes the amazing Japanese lady from JSNW (Japanese Society of North West) was made me think of I forgot to add the photo of Japan Day!

So The Japan Day in Manchester was on 25th of August 2014 with lots different activities from showing martial arts to the costume contest mostly from animation and manga characters and information about the Japanese art (like craft and paintings and etc.) and culture.

And Yuko invited me being as the guest of fantastic tea ceremony of Japan and I absolutely LOVED it.

The adventure was cool and the venue “Midland Hotel” was great, and I think bigger venue was even better because LOTS of people came and yeah! … it was full with people who were interested in Japan and it made me super happy ย ๐Ÿ™‚

Here are some photos:

And finally me as a Japanese warrior … Kind a … ^_^

Power of music

Power of Music

Like a piece of ice

Melting on a boiling lava

Drop by drop …

I drip to the music notes

I can’t stop listening

And as much as it melts me

I listen … over & over again

Then I become a part of lava

In a place that knows me the most

When I’m a stranger to all

I put my heads down

And I melt again …

I listen again …

And Its the lava that start melting

By the power of music

P.S Amaterasu “Goddess of the sun” animation finished!

I had a dramatic day because of some important things that needed to change at the last moment but I trusted my editing skills and VICTORY!

This is the first step of visualizing my research as part of Japanese mythology that again is the part of my research.

Hopefully by the beginning of 2015 I can came up with more focus research pattern and draft so I can step up for bigger projects.

Specially with starting working on my website it will get all better place.

It’s like giving the works a nice home and it feels good.

But now for the moment lots of projects is going on.

one big digital and graphic video for a massive performance project for the next 5 month

Digging on digital and social media world in DO I.T. this year
