My name is Guy.
(How very cliché)
At this entry-level point in my life, I am a Location Marshal in the Film Industry, and I have started this website as part of a (possibly misguided) attempt to throw myself into the creative side of said industry. For better or worse, I plan to make use of my compulsions: all my life I’ve been writing on one topic or another, and after years of denying it and pooh-poohing my own skills, I’ve decided to try my hand at this business of show.
I should preface all this by saying that I’ve been warned against it. Parents, friends, hell; even my own damn self, everyone’s pointed out that Film, for all its promise of glory, is a mirage filled with struggle for 99% of the poor saps who strike out for tinsel-town. Truth be told, this is why I began my Higher Education career in a small city in the North of England, studying Medical Product Design in the hopes of doing something that was sure to earn me money and have a positive impact on the world. Some time and wide-eyed fantasies later, I emerged with a BSc degree and a conviction that Medical Design was not for me, but the lessons I’ve learned both professional and social will serve me forever. However, it was at University that I started playing more with my Creative Writing, taking elective courses to which I probably gave too much of my focus, in retrospect.
