This week at work my film students are in three crews with each of the crews shooting a film a week for the next three weeks. A month from now there will be 9 new short films made. It is a busy and fun time of year.

For Micro Monday Iโ€™d recommend @grayareas for some interesting thoughts on cinema.

About to see my most-anticipated film of the year, Claire Denis’ strange sci-fi โ€ŽHIGH LIFE in the theatre. ๐ŸŽฅ
