Video work

Meg and I have a web series now. It's a monthly cake decorating show that will update the first Friday of each month. The first episode can be found here.

In an effort to get myself doing more creative video work (as opposed to the 40+ hours a week I spend doing very basic and usually uninteresting Final Cut editing), I'm putting together a professional site. Something I can send people to when they ask for a reel, but also a place I can use to link to current and upcoming projects. So check out the rather spartan XVI Films, especially if you're in the market for a videographer.

I was cleaning fake blood off the walls of the back room in a university library. Seemed like as good a way as any to kick off St. Patrick's day.

On the one hand, I'm glad we're getting close to being done shooting this movie, because I'm looking forward to the finished product. On the other hand, I'm going to miss the feeling of accomplishment that comes from getting through a long shooting day like last night. Until the next project, anyway.

So here’s my schedule for the next few days:

Saturday - Shoot horror movie all day, edit sci-fi trailer at night.
Sunday - Shoot documentary in afternoon, edit sci-fi trailer at night.
Monday - Shoot documentary in morning, shoot horror movie in evening, edit sci-fi trailer at night (if needed)
Tuesday - Shoot documentary in morning, meet with sci-fi director in afternoon, make changes to sci-fi trailer at night.

If I could stay this busy all the time, I might not have to be out job-hunting. But I know well that this weekend is the exception rather than the rule. The documentary is just three days of work before the director flies back to LA, the sci-fi trailer is a couple weeks to a month, then nothing until (and if) the director finishes shooting the movie. The horror movie is the closest to steady work I have at the moment (and the most fun to work on), but that will eventually wrap as well.

Which is the only reason I interviewed for a call center job last week, even after I found out it wasn’t actually tech support (which is kind of interesting), but customer complaints (which amounts to convincing people not to take their business somewhere better). I have a message that sounds like a job offer from them, but I want to wait a bit before calling back and committing myself one way or the other to a job I don’t really want, but would be a steady source of income.

In the mean time I’m going to enjoy the hell out of actually making movies for the next few days.

By the way

The trailer for The Fence I edited last month is up online.

Now to impress some people with money so I can quit my job this fall and work from home editing the feature.
