Got some simple CGI animation done for one of the Movie Clichés, and also the sound mix for that example. That one is pretty close to finished, just need the final touches, and flourishes on the host segment and then – BAMM! 1 more down, 29 more to go. My brain scatters a bit as I work on the next Sonnyboo Podcast shot on Friday and still have one of the Movie Cliché examples to even start editing, which I’ve blown off for over a week and would only take 2 hours tops to finish. Gotta keep my head on straight. My world is starting to swirl like the particle effects I just put in the clips. Getting ready to move, all the repairs and fixes – the stress from every single bump in the road along the way. I just want to make movies. Period. I still need a place to live.

It will all work out in the end. I’ve got a ton of new FRAMELINES roundtable material. The last couple ones have been mined for a lot of great material that is perfect for the web, if not broadcast. We’re finalizing a bunch of shows all at once, as we get the last pieces of material to put them together. Incorporating Johnny DiLoretto as the host has been fun. As always, we shot most of that greenscreen material all at once.

In a few short weeks, once I’m settled in the new place, I can focus on even more shoots. The goal is to get 1-2 of the Movie Clichés shot every week, here and there, whenever they can be worked in. We might do some “Behind the Scenes” previews every other week to fill in the time. I’m so antsy to release them as I finish, but then they don’t have time to ferment.

I’ve also got some more Tech Tip examples to shoot too. There is a backlog of Sonnyboo Podcasts in my queue also written. I can make stuff all the time, almost non-stop. So far, I’m pretty happy with the quality of what is getting finished. I can always do better, but that’s the journey, isn’t it? To always strive to do better? That’s what it is for me, anyways.

A weekend off means doing more work, but work I am excited to do. I have been dragging lately, not a lot, but enough to make me want to catch up, do more. I’m juggling several balls all at once these days with 2 jobs, 4 different personal projects, and 2 TV series in the works.

“Well, she’s walking through the clouds,
With a circus mind that’s running wild,
Butterflies and Zebras,
Moonbeams and fairy tales.”
