Even my weekends are jam packed! I am prepping cameras, 4 new LED light kits, the multicam and streaming package that are going out on a job while I am working a totally different gig on the other side of town. Next week is non-stop action. From early in the AM until late in the PM, just job after job after job. I love my life though and it feels good.

So so busy. Almost non-stop production, post production, client meetings, and teaching. And in my off time, I just either chill out poolside getting much needed sun on my pale white skin or in a near catatonic state devouring Netflix at a voracious pace. On the plus side, I did get my 4h Emmy nomination, so thereís that to placate the exhaustion.

Has it really been almost a month since I wrote my last blog? Holy hell, it has. Aside from doing freelance work as a TD (Technical Director), Iíve been directing the live shows for ALMOST ADEQUATE with J.H. Nuber and NOT SO LATE SHOW with Johnny DiLoretto, so my dance card is so full, I cannot get enough sleep. Especially with new episodes of Twin Peaks to catch.

Screened my roommateís feature film in the home theater last night for some people who worked on it. Scotch whiskey from Ireland was consumed. Grille charred the meats and men were men last night on this perfect Tuesday evening. The notion of making movies again just seems so appealing. I am torn though.

My feelings turn towards a sad reflection. A friend of mine, William T. Miller from Dayton passed away. I did not know him too well, but we were definitely kindred spirits. I did his talk show a couple times (see below embedded video) and we got along so well. He came here to see me a few times. I even saw him a few weeks ago at a film screening. Such a loss to the film community, as Bill was so enthusiastic about making movies.

Took some much needed time away from the world this past weekend. I got lost inside of Marvelís Iron Fist on Netflix. And I made time to reorganize my storage room for all my newly acquired and old moviemaking gear. Now that my Glidecam Crane 200 has been repaired, I wanted to start to make my stuff ready to work. I got some plans.

I donít recall the last time I was this busy. Working multiple jobs for several vendors, drone shots, camera operator, editing on someoneís short film, publishing another book, and teaching. Your faithful narrator remains ever so occupied. So why not add to that by re-writing a feature film?

Turns out directing live show has become equal to editing for my paydays. Iím getting booked up months in advance for different live streaming and broadcast. This skillset came from teaching at a broadcast school. I got trained by some local news guys who also taught at the same school. Now it makes me money. Oh how great a thing this can be.

And just like that, I am trying to cast my next short film. Been getting back to the gym (finally), heading there in a few actually. Getting the blood flowing back into my brain has helped motivate me to get off my ass and make this happen. In my head, this is ready to go. Thereís no reason for hesitation. Time to just do it.

Got so much work again that time remains working against me. The queue refilled itself with projects for the non-paid as well. After being sick for a few weeks, all I want to do now is just lay around and binge watch documentaries like the one I just saw on Gore Vidal. Getting out of the funk and back into action requires a jumpstart.

I was sick again. That lost a lot of energy into nothingness. Being thrust into a flurry of work for various companies meant no easing back into the groove. Doing live switching events has been my mainstay since winter time is not the best for Drone work. I still have not been able to take on my greatest enemy, the nemesis that has dominated all of my focus.

Things truck forward. Been busy all week with multicam directing gigs. Got an edit for Bryanís short film heís directing tomorrow. Tonight will continue the binge re-watching of GAME OF THRONES. I started this when I was sick the past two weeks, but now that Iím feeling better, I just canít stop.

Fate sometimes smiles upon me. I got an idea last night, this notion to turn something else I shot into an Interactive Tutorial, as it was fairly obvious. The entire clip on Cutting on Motion was ripe to have the raw footage put online and let people practice match cutting. I searched all three of the 5 Terabyte drives, and the additional 8 terabytes of internal storage and nowhere was the raw footage to be found.

A strange time indeed. The Annual Birthday Bash was a success. Iíve got an iPhone 7 now. Iíve got a 14mm, 50mm, and a 85mm prime lens. Storyboards have started for the next short film. Episodes of FRAMELINES continue to finalize as more segments get cut. Time moves forward and Iím gearing up for the next few steps.

Okay, next short film shoot is scheduled. That might be my last hope in some ways. Lately, it seems that life is robbing me of all the little (and even some big) pleasures. I used to get giddy at the completion of an edit, any edit. Could be for a client, could be a podcast, a FRAMELINES segment, and most especially at the end of an entire episode of FRAMELINES. I completed several segments, podcasts, and even 5 whole episodes and nothing. Nada. Niente. What the hell?

I got sick. Just a head cold, but man did that turn into a productivity motivator. I finalized 5 half hour episodes of FRAMELINES. Most of the segments were already edited, I must admit. Still, not all of them and putting together the shows requires a different mindset and takes some thinking (tinkering?).

Here we are at the end of yet another year. I did not think I would have the time to do a recap this year. Turns out having the flu creates a pocket of time since you can do little else. Although, I have managed to squeeze out 3 full episodes of FRAMELINES in as many days. I still have another 4 to go in the next week. Not that hard when most of the individual segments are already edited.

And another year comes to a close. Iíve been so busy of late that there has been no time to digest the happenings of the past twelve months. I usually slow down this time of year, only to be filled with my own works of the less-paid type and that is not the case in 2016. Although I have made the time of late for some personal and FRAMELINES edits to complete.

Holy cow, I have had one long week, that also is not letting up. Worked 3 jobs, got my FRAMELINES shoot done, and now I have been buried in greenscreen edits for one of the jobs until midday. I was awake every few hours to make sure I met the deadline. I directed a live gig and created some graphics for another project. Oh, and I have signed on to edit my 2nd short film for other people in 2 weeks.

ďThe best laid plans of mice and men often go awryĒ as they say. I had scheduled my first short film shoot in a couple years for Wednesday and now I am on several large paid gigs, all in a single week. I refused to give up on the FRAMELINES shoot so I just rearranged it. This one is required to be shot ASAP, so Iím okay with this all, just a little disheartening to lose the other.
