Turkey Day. No interest. I’ve got so much work to do and I want to finish edits, add graphics, color correct, and animate words and images. I’m thankful that I have a roof over my head, enough money to buy the place, and a willingness to make that happen from all interested parties. I’m even more grateful for the friends and even strangers that have helped me along the way. If I were to die tomorrow, I feel somewhat more loved than I did a year ago and certainly more than 2 years ago. My head stays in the game. I’ve got my list of things to do, edits to be completed, and shoots to be shot. even more so, ways to continue down the path of creating material and keeping my word. So strange how much I am driven by keeping my promises. Maybe it’s OCD or mayhap it’s simply trying to be honorable.
Even though I was initial annoyed at substitute teaching yesterday, it was a good class. I love to teach so much. There’s something about sharing knowledge and empowering people to create their own material. I may not like it, but that’s not the goal. I don’t want people to make what I want; I want them to make what THEY want to see. I just love opening their eyes to what is possible with what they have to work with.
Creativity and talent are subjective concepts. This is why I abhor film contests. Pointlessly debating the merits of prejudicial opinions does little but waste time and stroke egos (or belittles them based on the aforementioned opinions).
I stocked up on food at the grocery, got 4 feline assistant editors, and a hard drive full of unwatched Behind the Scenes content. I will get a lot done today. That is the goal.
And now I have a ton to learn with Element 3D from Videocopilot.net! An all new toy, with a steep learning curve; Goodbye tiny amounts of free time and Hello to some Ooey, gooey new skillsets!
