For those who keep a tab...

Disclaimer: This is not an interesting post. It is merely factual and facts about my life might not interest very many people. :)

Let me start by saying this last month has been a whirlwind of thoughts, actions and events.

My group and I had to shoot for a mock advertising campaign on Saturday, 18th of March. The choosing of product or service began as a brand extension exercise - after much deliberation we were happy with going the Cadburys route. Only this time Cadburys would be selling greeting cards. :) We debated. We changed scripts over and over. We fought, but when the moment had passed, so did the bitterness. To use a cliche, at the END of the day we had a script that could hold an audience. Gone half the distance, the other lap seemed just as daunting!

Come saturday, I was a bundle of nerves as we were given strict instructions that only the DIRECTOR got to interact with the camera person and technicians of our shoot. The onus fell on Yours Truly. :D The shoot was challenging but it turned out fabulously. Despite having a couple of actors with very little professional experience, we managed to pull off a great job. Kudos to my team for having handled the task at hand wonderfully. None of us would have been able to perform our roles had it not been for the effort the others had put in. :)

Phew... there's more. I have landed a job with Reuters to work as a correspondent at their Bangalore office. I like the sound of the work I'd have to do as it seems like a great learning experience. The package is good for a start in media and that makes me tres happy. :)

I warned you... there's better stuff out there to read, but this post was for the ones who were cribbing about my hiatus from 'stuck in my head'. Later. :D

Yes, I got this one and have replied to that. Great job and I am sure you will do very well. I guess the firewall at work must be filtering out a lot of emails coming from abroad.
