I meet Rebecca on my when I started at the university for the creative arts.
Rebecca is a keen film maker and has been working with people in America on editing their projects, she has told W.I.F.E what she has been up to in Lockdown.
What I have been Up to By Rebecca Barrett
Whilst in lockdown I've been working on my feature film script alongside my two co-writers. We are nearly finished on our first draft so its going well.
I feel like the industry has been pulled backwards by this, with many places shutting productions down, which can be very expensive, especially for newer companies who may not be able to afford having productions shut. Cinemas have also closed, many films either aren't able to be seen or have been pushed back entirely, something which isn't good for cinemas as they can't make a profit from showing films, and the production companies are not getting any profit from their films being shown.
Asides from my feature film script, Ive been working on a very ambitious TV project idea, an 'artist battle' TV show, similar to the Korean show 'Queendom' which aired last year.I don't know if any TV company's would be interested but I can only try.
I have found that my social media use now is Very high, I use a lot more, as we can't go out, I am spending all my time at home, so most of the time I am working on ideas and scripts, using my twitter and instagram to network.
I don't like Not being able to go to Uni and see my family (apart from my parents as I live with them)it wasn't until this pandemic happened that I realise how much my family means to me.
So having said that the first thing I am going to do after Lockdown is visit my family members I haven't seen and hug them. My Aunt lives round the corner from me and I haven't seen her since the lockdown, its not fun.
