So my little half-baked idea to put some 6 year old raw footage online to let people practice editing turned out to be a bit more successful that I thought. The webstats for the FRAMELINES website usually gets about 100 or so unique views a day. Yesterday topped out at around 2,400 and the most re-posts of anything we’ve ever done. I had no idea this would ‘click’ like this. Got a lot more paid work this week than I anticipated. Working on Thanksgiving, and taking on a class to help someone who is sick.
Okay. It’s official. I am a workaholic. The first step in fixing a problem is acknowledging you have one. I love what I do for a living.
Hit the gym last night. Went back to working on some edits. The new system of WDTV with content of my choosing has been helping a lot. I’m staying focused a lot longer and getting more finished.
And the two little ones are still here. I’m thinking about just leaving them outside in the snow. Maybe they’ll die a horrible little death, crying out loud and then I won’t have to deal with their cuteness and love anymore. Besides, “V” and Lorenzo need to have less fun and be MORE spoiled.
Hoping to get even more projects shot next week. As the cold and snow set in, having a backlog of edits means never stopping work. If I stop working, it’s like a shark that stops swimming. I’ll suffocate and die. Which I might do anyways since I’m in such poor shape, but still, it won’t be from a lack of film stuff.
