Given around six hours to explore Bruges, Belgium, one thing was evidently clear: we needed to pay homage to Martin McDonagh’s film “In Bruges” in some way. So, we picked a screenshot from the movie, found its location, and set-up an impromptu photo shoot. We’re more than proud of the result.
And if you haven’t seen the film, you should. It’s brilliant.
I’ve been in London for nearly a month and I still haven’t written a proper post detailing, in even a small way, a single of the many adventures I’ve had thus far. Shameful, really.
Unfortunately, you’ll have to wait just a little longer, dear readers. But, to whet your appetite, here’s just a few things:
We’re off tomorrow to see the Churchill War Rooms and Westminster Abbey, which will prove a historical experience, no doubt. This weekend, we’re off to the Flanders region of Belgium, with a pitstop in Bruges as well. I hear there’s world-class chocolate and loads of medieval buildings. More importantly, I hope to find where exactly in Bruges Martin McDonagh shot his film “In Bruges.”
In terms of my academics, I’m currently developing both a full-length screenplay and a one-act play, both with varying degrees of progress. But hey, that’s writing for you. I couldn’t be happier with our classes. To say our professors are phenomenal would be massively underselling them. They’re just chock-full of real-world experience as both playwrights and screenwriters; they’re basically bursting with wisdom and practical information.
And I drink a lot of tea now. Not ironically or anything, sincerely. Every class has a tea break and I always have tea when we have tea break. I am completely unashamed.
