Well here we go, the wait is over, drumroll please…
…I didn’t get into the National Film and Television School. I had an inkling I wouldn’t but of course I can’t deny that the hope was always there that I would.
I can come away from the whole experience with a very positive attitude though. To get an interview in itself is no mean feat and the interview went very well with regards to how my writing was received. That I can write I am no longer in any doubt. There were issues that came up in the interview that worried the panel somewhat. The distance I would have to travel, two years being unable to support a family etc. etc. and I’d like to think that is was these things that really swayed the verdict. Having said that I have asked if I can get a more in depth reasoning than simply ‘the competition was a very high standard this year’.
So its on with completing my portfolio before the years out and pushing to get that agent by next summer.
