BAFTA Sweetie! Luvvie, Darling, Mwah, Mwah!
Have spent the evening at BAFTA with Charlie Fish at the premiere of his first short film, "The Man who Married Himself". It was well received, and was good to chat with some of the people involved. especially Warren Clarke who spoke about acting as if it were like any other job, one that you need to do because you enjoy it, not because of what you might get out of it.
That really spoke to me. You should strive to be in a position because you enjoy what you do, and you do it because it matters to you, not because of the destination. That is very Zen, investing in the thrill of the journey, rather than the kudos of the arrival point.
Hopefully this will be the beginning of many more nights like this, we just need to find more hours in the day for Charlie to write ...
