Maxence Cyrin ~ Where is my mind?

As my family will tell you, I have an interest in more melancholy songs, such as this one. I am trying to learn this one on the piano, which means that I really like this song because usually I do not learn things on the piano (so far there has only been two songs that I have bothered to learn) since I have never had any lessons, but since I can read notes somewhat and also have a pretty good ear for just picking things up. Normally I play the violin, but I don't think that this song would really work for the violin. I thought that I would add a picture that reminded me of the music. Here is a link to the sheet music, in case you should want to learn it as well:   Where is my mind? sheet music

Filming ~ Day 1

Well we did our first day of filming, which went a lot better then I expected. We managed to get an entire act done, and also managed to have a lot of fun in the process. We were going to rent a old Victorian house for filming, but it didn't quite work out since it didn't fit with the budget (which is only about twenty dollars, which admittedly is a rather hard to work with budget) so we ended up filming at my house, with almost all the furniture we used was from my room since I have during the years collected an assortment of old and Victorian furniture (which I might point out was only about four pieces of furniture but who really cares about such minuet details!). Anyway I will keep you posted as to further developments.

To do a Movie or Not to do a Movie? That is the Question

Whether it is nobler to do a play and bear the pangs of not having all the actors or to skip the whole thing and do a movie instead? 
      Or something to that effect, I think I have determined that I will be doing my own Student film. What in world am I talking about you may ask? Well, several months ago I started directing a play, which I also ended up taking the lead in, due to some complications. In between now and then many adventures and mishaps, but I have decided that it would be neat if we did it as a movie instead. So I am beginning the motions, trying to find locations, working out choreographing for those locations, and oh, also memorizing lines. The play (or now movie) is Pygmalion written by George Bernard Shaw, you may of the musical version which is more well known, My Fair Lady. Set in the early 1900's England, about a certain gentleman that takes in a young girl from the streets and teaches her how to be a lady. The title Pygmalion which you may think an odd one, comes from the Greek legend about a stone carver, Pygmalion, who carves a statue of a woman and falls in love with it, in the end the Greek gods have pity on him and they turn the statue into a real person. All in all it should be a very interesting venture and I will try to keep you informed of any further developments.
