The End?

I cannot believe this day actually came...

(Abstract) Eye on the World

A few of you may have seen my new blog on my Blogger profile but for those who haven't, it's called '(Abstract) Eye on the World' and it's about anything that I feel I need to talk about. Basically it's your average everyday blog.

Why did I do this? Well, you see I love this blog and making movies, but I've always been so strict when deciding what topics I write about. So I hope that this new blog will give me more freedom in what I can write in it.

Obviously this blog will still be updated, in fact, nothing has changed. Except now I have a place to blog about whatever I want, and keep this website focused on my movies. So please, show your appreciation by checking out this website and don't forget to follow/subscribe! (If you missed the link, it's right at the top of the article!)

FB Like Buttons

Just as a quick note, we now have Facebook like buttons at the top of each post, so if you like a particular post of this blog, don't be afraid to 'Like' it! It's a wonderful system and every time you like an article, I get a tiny bit of publicity for my blog, so everyone's happy!

Completely Random Post (Or is it…)

Well, I bet you never saw this coming, what with my pedantic nature and hatred of random space-filler posts, but I do actually have a reason. I really need to stop mentioning Twitter but it is Twitter related, not my Twitter account but The Cannon of Clips’ Twitter account. You see, whenever I post to this blog or someone posts to the Cannon of Clips Crew blog; a service called TwitterFeed is supposed to tell the Cannon of Clips’ Twitter account to post a link to the new post. Unfortunately it takes hours until each post is finally posted and sometimes it doesn’t post at all. So this post is to see if TwitterFeed can really be trusted with the Twitter/blog posting job. (Or whatever you prefer to call it.)

Actually, there are a few more small things I want to say before I end this post:

  • The Bodens ‘Behind the Dream’ series is finished, you can get a link to their YouTube page here! (I appear in parts 1, 2 and 8)
  • A new, upcoming little website/blog has just come out of the internet processing bin, it’s called and it was made by my good friend Calum Knott, (See if you can see him in the Behind the Dream videos) I’m not sure exactly what the website is going to be about but I’m waiting for great things from it, so the more people that are watching it, the more pressured he’ll be to work on it!
  • More advertising, this time we’ll be staying right here in the ‘Blogspot’ domain with a blog created by an old friend I was happy to be reunited with at Midsummer, but not an actor this time. This photography based blog was created by a volunteer photographer, (At least I hope it was volunteered or all us actors have just been screwed!) Heather McCutcheon with a blog called ‘We're all Mad Here...’! (But who is madder, me or Heather?)
  • Please ‘Like’ The Cannon of Clips on Facebook! Just click the button in the sidebar! (This is why I hate the new page ‘Like’ buttons, they make me sound desperate. E.g. “Please like me!”)

Back to Work, Mr. Pichelski!

The Easter holidays have officially ended for me and tomorrow I'm back off to school to continue my life. By the way, Midsummer Night's dream went really well, (I'm hanging up one of the leaflets on my wardrobe to remember it by) they even gave me a small blog on their website to personally track the last couple of weeks, (It's just about gone now though) truly it has been an unforgettable experience and I hope to work at Bodens in the future. Oh, very quickly before moving on; in case you don't follow me on Twitter (I really need to stop advertising my Twitter account) here's a picture of the costume I wore:

Anyway, moving on to my projects: now that I've got some time I can get back to working on my own videos, hopefully now that I've made some friends at Bodens, perhaps some of them will have that time to help me. Now that I think about it, I bet the only reason I have trouble finding people is because of time, no-one around my age has any time, what with GCSEs or A levels or whatever they are legally required to do...

*Sigh* I guess I'll just have to hope for the best...

A New Coat of Web-based Paint

Only this week did Blogger announce the BETA for customisable themes and I have jumped on that boat right away! The previous theme was one of the built-in themes at the time, but for someone with no coding skill whatsoever, that was pretty much the only option.

But now with news of the customisable themes, I think that this a good chance to try something new and really make this website original. I can't add the TCOC logo into the background yet so it's not 100% permanent, I may tweak the layout as the feature progresses, but for now, enjoy the slightly more original 'Julian's Movie List'

Bodens' Midsummer Night's Dream

If you follow me on Twitter, (Yeah, you can know a lot about me from my Twitter, perhaps I'm hinting at something there (It's TCOCJulian by the way)) that I have been involved in a production of Midsummer Night's Dream for Bodens Studios. I would have posted about this a LOT earlier, except I was waiting for the first behind the scenes episode to be released on YouTube and it's only just been uploaded. If you know the story of Midsummer Night's dream then you'll understand the scenes being improvised here, if not, then watch the video anyway, it's really quite funny Our Director (Anna Sternberg) has been really amazing to set up the rehearsal process like this. So, better late then never, try to look out for me and here it is, Bodens' 'Behind the Dream:

Part 1

Part 2
