However this leads me to insert regular blog post as part of my 2010 resolution. As I blogged before, this is going to be my wish list for 2010 and a recap on 2009.
From my previous post here, I have managed to accomplish at least some of items which I have listed and i'm quite happy about it too. It was not an easy task but I have managed to complete it. Here goes the list:
- Get a DSLR - DONE
- Change my car (City/Civic/Lancer/Wish/X-Trail) – Cancelled as it’s not practical based on my economical status.
- Fly to Australia or New Zealand but this time for real holiday – Change of course to India
- Get a Blackberry – Changed my mind to Sony Ericsson Satio
- Buy another house – Not needed and practical
- Register rujjcoomarh.com - Postponed
- Complete SAP - Postponed
- To direct at least 5 music videos - DIRECTED 3 – Few more under discussion
- To complete at least 2 short movies - COMPLETED 1, postponed other projects due to photography interest and learning process
- Prepare a full length story to shoot – Postponed until further notice
If you go through the list you will find that there are some resolutions that I have decided to postpone. Come to think about it those resolutions is something that is not necessary for the moment hence I have decided to either postpone it or call it off once and for all. Below are some of the 2009 items/activities which I have completed without planning or list in my wish list. Some are just meant to happen just like that and some are pre-planned.
- Going to India – This trip was all of a sudden as I have thought of going to India anytime. But after stepping my foot in India, I was so astonished and mesmerized with the country and its people. Aint no joke they call the place Incredible India.
- Getting more active with photography – I have to thank Vickneswaran for this. He has helped me so much in creating the interest of photography in me and at the same time he was never stingy in sharing all his knowledge with me. One thing I like about Vicky is he was never angry or irritated over my numerous idiotic questions on technicality of photography and its details. Thanks Brotha! Hidup VIP Studios!
- Meeting Venkat Prabhu, Premji Amaren, Aravind Akash, Sampath and the whole team of Goa and become really good friends – This I have to thanks Devan and Jay. Never in my dream have ever dreamt that I would meet these people and experience the whole movie shoot. It has made me learn a lot of stuff technically and practically on movie making. We became so close that we will call each other to well wish.
- Learning how a full length feature film is made from Sakthi Saravanan sir. One of the most talented and award winning cinematographer cum cameraman in India. He is one of the best I would say. I hope to meet PC Sreeram sir one day
- Meeting allot more people who have helped and going to help me in my interest of direction, cinematography and photography.
- Join Fitness First. Hahah this was totally unplanned and but I have my target.
- Recent photography workshop with Karthik Venkatraman - DOP of Maniratnam and Asst Cameraman of PC Sreeram. He has actually changed the way I look at things and I have never seen such a humble but knowledgeable person yet he is so young. I do not want to compare with some. P/s: you want to see his work, check out some photos of Paa the Movie (Amitabh and Abishek Bachans new movie)
- Moving into my own house finally and it was like a dream come true.
- Last but not least MahLeh - As I have mentioned before I just do not how to thank all the people who have helped me in completing Mahleh but it was a life changing experience.
So have you all read my post mortem for the year of 2009, I may have missed some points or events intentionally. Looking forward for 2010 as norm I have a list which I hope that I could accomplish by end of the year. This year going to be an excellent year for me on every aspect and will be a life changing one too. Here goes my wish list for 2010:
- BLOG REGULARLY!
- Invest and get more lenses for my camera
- Direct at least 3 short movies and send for entries at least one
- Change my car
- Move on with career
- Revamp and rebrand Arkay Productions (on going now)
- Complete my Direction/Cinematography course
- Expand the network of Arkay Productions
- Undisclosed plans
So I hope that I could reach my goals and tick off my wish list before end of 2010. Not forgetting to all my enemies, well wishers, readers and followers, I will make sure that I will blog regularly and keep my post updated to the most. I shall not repeat my mistakes again.
Thank you for being with me and Arkay Productions family all this while. We are going to rock 2010!!
