and more of the weekend....

It is extremely annoying that as you add to your post it adds it to the top and not the bottom... I can't see any sense in this and its ruining the order!! And I like things to be in order. I have so much to post up while i'm in London its hard to keep up with everything....

So heres a few more things that have happened in the last few days...

Office summer party! Free margahritas my favourite and had a really great time chatting to everyone. Had to leave early unfortunately, but everyone got very drunk and we got bacon sanwhiches for breki in the morning. Good times!

I went to see Harry Potter at last! Well what can I say, I reckon they missed about 3/4s of the story out, what they did keep in half they made up and half was changed. I know they can't fit it all in but i felt it was a poor effort! Obviously they've already cut down half the last book content now by missing out some key storylines now so who knows what the last film will be like!!
I guess if you havn't read the book then it was probably pretty good, the special effects were amazing I must admit, just a shame about everything else.
Bellatrix is still my favourite =)
And everyone should read the books, they can't even compare to the films.

Yesterday was the Crit with Dave Trott for the G-Wizz brief he set us last week. Spent ages this week on coming up with ideas. And he didn't even look at people's work. Two were late and so he went off on one and basically shouted at us for an hour and then left! Not much help really. especially seen as what he shouted about was just a repeat of last week. Welcome to the real world I guess!
However, I did take a few things from him, he gave us a great tip of going through the newspaper, picking out bad ads and re-doing them. That way, you get totally new work that no one else has done, and your not trying to compete with people over the same briefs. It says straight away ''look whats being published, I can do it better''.

Then we had a presentation about writing for radio- very useful hints and tips, the main one being, STOP FOLLOWING RULES. This can stifle your creativity. If it works it works and it doesn't matter how you got there. So the new brief is to write a script for Kiss radio station based on the idea that ''Music Is Life''. It's for Kiss so they own the air time and it could be made if it's good enough.

Meanwhile, at work, Starting on a new brief today for a press campaign for a very expensive sports car make....
