What I have been upto all these days, plus a book recommendation
Quite a lot - From picking through Kubrick to picking through accounts.
I never thought my PGDBA would help. But my modest skills in drawing up business plans, growth forecasts and preparing statements were useful in my Independent Producing and Production Management unit. Now I too am an accountant! After that, I forced myself into a crashcourse in music theory to help me attempt an analysis of Stanley Kubrick's use of sound in 2001 - A Space Odyssey. I then did a little analysis on International distribution of Tamil cinema, which I hope to publish here soon.
Enough excuses to keep me off blogging?
Book recommendation: On Film-Making: An introduction to the craft of the director by Alexander Mackendrick (edited by Paul Cronin). Mackendrick, famous for his Ealing comedies is a very good teacher as well. I should say that this is the best book on film direction I have ever read.

This is very VERY basic stuff but methinks the author makes it even more basic and therein lies his genius.
His two books and that ridiculously simple software are pretty neat! They seem like they popped straight out of the 1980s. Then again, so did I! (You, even?!)
Anyhoo, well worth a flip-through, time-permitting!
