On Friday I handed in my last university work: 3 visual diaries, 2 films, 1 exhibition DVD showreel, 1 5 min showreel, CV, cover letter, business cards, 10 DVDs with MXF files, 2 DVDs with Avid project files, 10 still images, list over professional contacts, film festivals and job applications and 3 module evaluation forms. The last major hand in at university. After this the only thing we have to work with is the final exhibition, but this is not graded.
After handing in I thought I would feel an burden lifting from my shoulders, that all the stress and worries would disappear and that I would feel that I got my life back. The same feeling you get after finishing a exam in high school… That didn´t happen, in stead I felt like I had lost something. I felt like I just got fired for my favourite job and that I now was thrown in to a uncertain future. I felt the post university blues arrive and my one question was and is; what now?
I am not the only one that feel this way. Loads of my friend soon started to share their fears as well and the begging for a job and a future soon filled my facebook, my thoughts and my talks. Teachers warn you about this, they try to prepare you with CV workshops, pretend interviews and job websites. But you don´t realise how hard it hit before it happens. And it is not strange considering that the university life is the only life you have known for the last three years.
Still, no matter what the future have to bring I am sure it is going to be fine in the end. Anyway I will always have 3 wonderful years at university to look back at. I feel that I really have done everything I can and have really managed to get the best out of the university experience. If you want to take a look at some of my best work these last three years have a look at my new Showreel, hope you enjoy it! And btw, if you know about an available job within TV or film, let me know 😉
