#354: See if I can finally figure out how to climb a rope.

Date: 12-20-2014

Due Date: 12-20-2015

The Resolution: I never figured out how to climb a rope, granted the first and only time I ever really tried was about 25 years ago during the Presidential Field Challenge thing we had to be a part of while I was in elementary school.

Part of the problem was that I was a fat kid and didn't have the upper body strength the other problem was that I didn't really grasp the technique. I remember have some kind of cartoon physics going through my head as I just clung to base squirming like an uncoordinated inch worm.

I never revisited this challenge because it seemed so pointless, but now I'm kind of intrigued.

 I have no idea whether or not I can climb a rope right now but I do think I can figure it out this round.

We'll see.

No I just need to find a rope to climb.

I started out with a goal of becoming a paid screenwriter. I had no interest in any other aspect of filmmaking. I received and scholarship to The Vancouver Film School's Writing for Film and Television program where I graduated in 2005. I fell in love with being on set during my first non-school produced short, . I loved being around all the creative people, seeing people having fun while working. The whole liking your job was a new world to me, so I decided to give it a shot. I volunteered for any project I could, doing what ever was needed. The set was my Film School this time. While working as a PA on a feature I was informed that the DP wanted the three tallest PAs to help out in the grip and electric department. That is when I found the department that felt like the best fit for me while I continued to write.
