Tips for an uninspired filmstudent during a pandemic


Recommended Posts

Dear people of East Dulwich and beyond,

I am a filmstundent doing an MA in creative documentary directing living in the area and I am in a pickle. With projects not going ahead as planned due to covid and not being able to interact with the world around me as I'm used to.. I'm having a hard time finding new stories that inspire me. Do you know one? I'm looking localy for stories, interesting characters or places, something going on or something that angers you - anything!

Read all the stories about the post. You could trail a postman and watch people shouting at him/her or visit the sorting office. Perhaps the sight of a camera would inspire them to actually get the post moving. Stories about what the post means to people

How about documenting the local charities helping the elderly, refugees and others? I can put you in touch with a local refugee organisation that has been feeding their clients throughout lockdown - not promising anything, but you might be able to help each other.

    • how often do you spray it ? there is a lot of fence and i feel like they don't walk up to our garden - they generally just jump/fly in without really checkig it out beforehand
    • Does anyone know who is taking over the premises?
    • I received an email reminder of the "invite" (I think they meant invitation...) to the stakeholder meeting from Southwark Events Team at the weekend, really informal and signed by "Charlie". It also mentioned that "The GALA consultation findings report will be circulated shortly". I replied with a few observations & questions, including whether the report would show all the responses, and if not then how can they be obtained.
    • That's a fair point Ted  A lot of people are suffering with financial pressures and councils seem to believe residents can dig deeper and stump up extra cash when some can't even put three meals a day on the table.  If councils were run like businesses they would either all have gone out of business by now or trimmed their sails to suit the wind by reducing internal inefficiencies and waste.
