They say what you do on New Years Eve will be indicative of what you will be doing the rest of the year. What a crock! Even if it’s true, I’ll spend my year with a good friend, talking and laughing and having a great time. And I’ll be preparing to be productive for the next day perpetually. I have some proposals for the school of some extracurricular items that won’t cost anything, but might engage students outside of class time. I’m trying to find a way to reach the students that maybe aren’t as motivated on their own. I want to make video production and editing appealing to people who aren’t initially entice.
I’m planning on spending more of my free time making it less free. I have a lot of catch up to play. I have not been marketing as much, mostly because I don’t have anything to market. No new movies, no finished episodes of a TV series, and no products to go along with them. That trend has to end soon.
My goal is not to placate my ego, as that tends to be well fed already. No sir, I want to get back to the ambitions of telling stories on a bigger scale than I have lately. I’m not in a contest with other filmmakers. How boring. No, I want to make the movies I have in my head a reality and not compromise as much as I have in the past.
Step one, make movies. I edited the faux scene for the Framelines Tutorials, which needed 5 variations for the various demonstrations. It took about 11 minutes total. And of that, about 4 minutes was spent getting lost in Louie Cowan’s beautiful eyes. And Robert Foor’s derriere.
Now to finish all the other edits awaiting my metaphorical razor blade of mouse and keys. Back at it!
