I've given into the Blogside!
Firstly, a big warm welcome to you. Thanks for stopping by!
I've been meaning to start a blog but work and stuff kept getting in the way plus you know, it's finally sunny out. Anyways, I'm here. I'll be using this space to talk movies, television, screenwriting, reviews, cats, girl power, anything that's on my mind really. If you have any questions, feel free to comment here or tweet me @missjoho and I'll answer when I get the chance.
Let's kick off this getting to know each other with...
10 Things You Didn't Know About Me:
I learned how to write by studying my two favourite TV shows, Buffy The Vampire Slayer and The West Wing, and continue to watch each boxset once a year.
Gained my first industry gig by going through The Knowledge and cold calling each and every listed production company until I found one who was crewing.
As a kid, I was scouted by big time film producers while on a trip in China, who wanted to train me into the next big action star. My ma said no because it would mean leaving me with them in China.
Translated, my beautiful Chinese name means "daughter of the snow".
In English, my Chinese name sounds like "whore shit".
I played football with an armadillo once, until my grandparents cooked it. *Amendment: this reads like I used the armadillo as a football when what I mean is, I rolled a ping pong ball over to him and he would kick it back. I was convinced I'd discovered some unique animal whispering/coaching talent. Then one day, I got back from kindergarten and was served him as my main course. Heartbreak ensued.
I'm probably a better gamer than you.
I think I'm American. I use American words and spellings, write big budget genre shows/films (usually set there), and have their "can do" attitude to life. I am genuinely shocked when someone points out I'm British.
Ballerina's scare me.
That accursed Michael Arndt is getting all the jobs I want.
