#356: Develop a real signature.

Date: 12-22-2014

Due Date: 12-22-2015

The Resolution: I remember way back when I was in high school as we approached our final year, everyone seemed to be working on developing the perfect signature. It was as if this was the true transition into adulthood.

It was a time when we had to start submitting serious paperwork on our own to finally get the freedom of no longer being a kid. Whether this meant college applications, job applications, leases, checks, etc... it was important that our printed representation of ourselves was just as flawless as the information we were sharing.

I had a pretty decent signature at the time.

Then I became a real adult and found it didn't matter.

At the age of twenty one I started working in the international shipping department at Amazon.com, where I had to sign hundreds of forms a day. I had no time for perfection so my signature devolved to the scribble in the photo above.

Now I rarely have to sign things but the lazy penmanship is embedded deep in my brain.

This year I'm going to work on developing a real signature once again.

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.
