Hello everyone, just like to introduce myself firstly. I am Oscar Knott, I make short films and all that stuff and really intreseted in it all (http://www.youtube.com/oscarknott69)
I have finished school in Australia and now living in England for a bit. I will later be coming back to apply for the “Australian Film Television and Radio School’s (AFTRS) Foundation Course” for 2011 (http://www.aftrs.edu.au/courses/foundation-diploma.aspx).
At the moment im dreading over the application for it, their are no pre-requisets for it (which im kind of suprised about) but the tasks are a bitch:
“Tasks to be completed as part of the application process:
- Set Task 1: Submit a 2-3 page scripted scene between two strangers in which something substantial changes for at least one of them
- Set Task 2: Write an outline of your creative work and experience (300 words)”
As you can probably guess its not so much task 2 im worried about as I have a fair amount of creative experience on my record, both personal and proffesional. So as for Task 1! JUST BECAUSE IM JOINING THIS COURSE DOESNT MEAN IM A WRITER! Any one who has ideas for this please share, i really need some inspiration. My plan is to simply write as many scripts as I can untill then and decide which is best by the end. I will also be posting these as I finish them for advice from you guys!
As some of you may know, AFTRS is super prestigious and ultra selective so it will be an acomplishment if I do manage to get in. I have also noticed that their arent enough journal/blogs online of the stressful AFTRS app process and what the experience is actually like so I plan to give you as much detail as i can as to what to expect.
Alternativley if I dont make it into AFTRS (god forbid) i will end up at tafe to study film and tv the course looks alright but the fact that their is no application requirements and all you have to do to get in is show up on the day kind of puts me off.. so lets hope i dont wind up their…
Lastly I would like to officially announce my new film which I will have more details on in my next post. So they new film is…. get ready for it! ….THE FACE (4). If you are familiar with my past films you will likely be dissapointed by this news and not suprised either. But their is more to this sequal (or should I say reboot) then meets the eye. So as I said befor, I will go into more detail with this in my next post and put up the first image (or images if ur lucky haha) of the film.
So that was my first blog, hope u cum bak for more!
