Got four more greenscreen items shot in 4K. Using the Blackmagic Ursa Mini for a bit. Two places I freelance for now use this camera. The Ursa Mini does some pretty nice images. It requires a decent amount of color grading to get any kind of look out of it. There isn’t really a great “out of the box” image. Many people prefer this control in post. I have no strong feeling either way. Shot 4 segments. One Sonnyboo Podcast, a FRAMELINES Tech Tip, and 2 Framelines Interactive Tutorials. Replenishing my supply of projects to finish so that I won’t waste my time binge watching Netflix series.

Even when I had a 7:00AM call time, an all day edit, and a bad night’s sleep, still hit the gym today. I swam more laps than I ever have in my life. The outdoor pool, the late afternoon sunlight, and a calm demeanor made my day complete. I have another edit job tomorrow, so I have to get to my work tonight all night.

I am struggling hard to keep positive. Outside forces are trying hard, real hard to drag me into nonsense. I stand upon a precipice, challenged to defend myself against outrageous accusations, to fight for the truth. Or Let bad people get away with lies and manipulations.

I will resist and stay on the more meaningful path I have been on. Focusing on work, relishing on the serenity I have in my world is all it takes. I have had enough battles for one lifetime.

I get fulfillment from creating things, not from pointless debates. Someone having a problem with me does not make it my problem too. If someone has a completely wrong impression of me, it is not really my job to change their mind.

All I can really do is live my life as best I can. Try not to let what I do hurt anyone else. Give more love than I take.

That’s it. That’s the most I have in me anymore.

Oh, and eat Ben & Jerry’s. The double chocolate fudge every now and then makes life worth living.

“I don’t want to spend the rest of my life
Looking at the barrel of an Armalite
I don’t want to spend the rest of my days
Keeping out of trouble like the soldiers say
I don’t want to spend my time in hell
Looking at the walls of a prison cell
I don’t ever want to play the part
Of a statistic on a government chart
There has to be an invisible sun
It gives its heat to everyone”
– The Police
