I promote my movies online. A lot. There is nothing new or even original about this. I make movies because I want them to be seen by as many people as possible. I am incredibly proud of the actors, the camera work, and everyone who helped make the movie. I feel I owe it to them to work hard and post the movie as much as I am able to. Here’s where I get confused; how can this possibly affect someone negatively?

Put out the latest Movie Cliché clip (see below). It felt really good to get this done then put it out into the world. It took so long, much longer than it should have. It’s done now. That’s what counts. I really hope this finds its way out into an audience that likes it. I love it.

So, got another Emmy nomination. Totally rad. To be honest, I was not expecting it. I feel what I submitted this year was inferior to what I sent last year, which means, winning is a LOT less likely. That’s okay; that isn’t the point really, at least for me. I completely forgot about entering, and when I got to school, someone messaged me a “good luck”, then I logged in to the live stream, just in time to hear my name read aloud. What a strange happenstance! And then I went back to work until late at night, went home and edited some more.

Got the first pass of the sound mix last night. 90% there already. That means stepping up my host segment final tweaks, getting this thing ready for release on Friday. No one is particularly waiting for this, nor is there any anticipation. I just want to do this for me. Fulfilling a promise I made, again more to myself than anyone else, means feeling better on the inside where my squishy parts are.

So I missed my mark of having all 5 pieces edited from last weeks shoot. Instead, I did get 4 done and I watched several movies outside of doing some other work. I feel pretty darn good about what has been accomplished thus far. I’m still on track for a Friday-Saturday release of the latest Movie Cliché, this one not written or hosted by me - which quite frankly most of them aren’t.

Got most of the stuff from last Sunday’s shoot edited for picture lock. No color correction, no visual FX, no sound design or mix yet, but getting the picture lock begins all those other processes. Five pieces cut in 3 days demonstrates a significant improvement in my acumen of late. Being excited about creating new works always helps.

My ploy to deceive myself actually works a little. I started by just doing the normal ASSISTANT EDITOR work, IE creating bins (folders), moving raw footage into them, duplicating the single channel of audio to both (dual mono), and then starting to just watch all the raw footage. Of course, the cutting down of some shots, deletion of takes you KNOW you won’t use, etc. means the whittling away jump started the sometimes elusive creative process; or sometimes referred to as defeating procrastination.

I volunteered to judge some categories for the Emmy’s and also the big local film festival. Got my Emmy ones done yesterday and wow was I impressed. Having a greater understanding of the process means I am even less likely to take home a gold statue, nonetheless even get another nomination. I am humbled by the work I have been seeing.

The shoot went over. Way over. And it was TOTALLY worth it. The horror movie cliches were done as night shoots - how is that possibly a bad thing? We’ve got five of these mini movies in the can. It took almost 15 months to get them shot, but now that they are, it ain’t gonna take that long to get them edited and delivered. This I vow.

The Movie Cliche auditions went well. Very happy, found some people for sure. Some of them won’t get shot for the movies until June-July-August, but it was nice to find new actors and connect with people I haven’t seen in a while. The shoot Sunday has me excited, nervous, and absolutely jubilant.

Things are moving fast. All kinds of paperwork and $900.00 in on the new house already, and there’s no guarantee I’ll absolutely get it. The Movie Cliche shoot is coming up and I need to move pretty darn quick. I must be a complete idiot with all that is going in personally to try to not only do a shoot, but to increase my ambitions the way I have.

Yesterday was something of a nice break through. I was exhausted, burned out, and fried. And still I managed to edit out the latest Sonnyboo Podcast. Plus I walked 4 miles after looking at furniture and housewares for the new homestead. It was a better alternative to sitting around doing nothing. I watched two movies Saturday night and one more last night too.

Headed out to Dayton today to do an interview for a show there. I’m also going to drop off episods of FRAMELINES and also CLIP FRAMES for broadcast there too. Multipurpose trips always placate my Obsessive-Compulsive side.

Location scout last night went swimmingly well. An embarrassment of riches in terms of the visuals. I’m still missing one location for the shoot day, the one that should in theory be the easiest - the woods. It will be Memorial Day weekend, so the public parks will be swamped and uncontrollable. It also isn’t as simple as finding any ol’ place, as it needs to fit in the shooting areas because we have 4 company moves in a single shoot day.

I thought my big shoot was next week. I have almost 2 whole weeks! I watched and judged the High School film fest last night. Next up, judging for the Emmy’s this week. Yesterday, I helped out a friend doing some Behind the Scenes interviews for his feature. I wasn’t feeling 100%, as in I hadn’t slept well and I was sleepy. There’s also that same old oddity when you see a movie and talk about actors that you’ve never met, then when you do I have a sense of familiarity, but they’ve never met or heard of me.

Man! Things continue the upswing. First and foremost, got the house. New Rossdonia will be no more. Rossland? Ross Angeles? Rosstopia? I cannot name the place until I move in and get it all setup. Things for the upcoming Movie Cliche are so smoothly coming together, I cannot believe how lucky I am.

Man, does stuff come together sometimes. We’ve got all kinds of shoots going for FRAMELINES, with ON LOCATION segments and FEATURED FILMMAKER interviews, and the new host segments getting shot soon. We’ll have at least 4-5 new episodes put together over the next couple months.

I managed to get an entire day off work in the middle of the week. No classes, no editing of any kind, and minimal stresses. I got a long walk at the park in with the sun shining, a whole lotta television catch up (2 weeks of MAD MEN, latest CASTLE, THIS WEEK TONIGHT, and the double episode of the return of Jack Bauer in 24). Unfortunately, I grabbed the wrong raw footage files for the next Sonnyboo Podcast, so I’m headed in to the office, so some work will inevitably ensue.

My weekend off became editing on both Saturday and Sunday on a client project. Less cleaning, less sleep, less relaxation. I worked on my calendar for May, and I have booked so many things, paid, unpaid, parties, and shoots that it was an absolute miracle that not a single thing was double booked.

And I thought things were going to slow down. Nope. At least my luck has been shifting into the ever-better category. I thought one aspect of my life was about to become uncomfortable, and I got a reprieve. I thought my transmission was failing, and I spent $3 on fuel injection cleaner and solved the problem. I believed my payday was almost a month away and the check arrived in the mail. Missed FedEx, but the lens showed up anyways. Sometimes, life is better to me than I deserve.
