As an aspiring filmmaker/videographer i've been spending my late high school days and now my early college days as a freelance wedding videographer. I have two large projects to finish in what I'm hoping will be this week. I started off the weekend with the best intentions to get one project completely finished and off to the very impatient client. Instead i managed to waste the entire weekend with little more then capturing my footage onto my disk drive. So here is my list of how to waste an entire weekend. Friday 1. Tell yourself your going to bed early tonight and wake up early the next morning to work. Saturday 9 am - so far so good, it's a good time in the morning, get exited about all the work your gonna do - take a shower - eat breakfast 10 am - a little TV won't hurt 1 pm - realize you need to run some errands (this won't take long ) 5 pm - get home and get down to work 5. 30 have all the decks and tapes set up, the drives clear and ready for capture. Begin ... well this doesn't really need me to be here while it's capturing, i'll watch some TV and have a beer 7 pm, oh **** lost track of time, the tape has been done for the last 35 minutes. Next tape - have another beer 9 pm, oh damn forget the tape was done for over an hour again. alright lets get some work done. move a few scenes around, check email - oh macrumors gotta post, gotta post 10 pm, alright gotta work, move a few scene - have another beer 11 pm - get a call do the bar - go 3 am - get home, i'm to tired to work, i'll just get up in the morning Sunday 12.30 pm - wake up with a headache, go watch TV 1.30 pm - go take shower, and then eat breakfast 3 pm , decide to move tv into where your working so you can "listen" to some shows while you work. - have another beer 3.15 pm everything is set up, you can start working 3.30 - cigars, gotta have one 4 pm - demolition man is on 5 pm alright really gotta work - have another beer 7 pm - move some scenes around, watch tv 8 pm have a cigar 8.30 pm that was a good cigar, but my mouth is dry - have a beer 10 pm, oh sienfeld, i'll watch this for a bit, while smoking a cigar and have a beer. 11 pm. oh man i need to lie down 12 am, alright gotta work till morning - have one more beer 2 am i'm to tired to work, i'll just wake up in the morning and work. Monda 8 am , shower, have breakfast, post on the internet how well you waste time: So what have we learned about taking essential steps to wasting a weekend 1. do "essential" things outside the house 2. drink 3. go out with friends 4. sleep late 5. move a tv into the room your working in 6.drink 7. check email 8. smoke cigars 9. go to bed when your to drunk and tired to sit and "work" 10. wake up early and post what you have learned on the internet I Hope my list has been inspiring, good luck to all with their projects.
