January 2013

Greetings all! I hope you have had a successful beginning to your New Year! I could not have asked for a better start to the year! I have be swamped with work and learning more things constantly! If I’m not editing I’m on shoots in beautiful locations such as the Santa Cruz mountains and San Francisco! I’ve begun shooting some cooking videos which offer new challenges, not to mention tasting benefits at the end of the day. =D

I’ve finally increased my production kit to the point where I have no immediate need to rent gear. Although, there is always a new toy that I drool over. I think this is true for any artist. There is always that paint, brush, lens, material or tool that you lust after, and they all cost money! The starving artist is not starving for lack of work, they are starving because they spend their last dimes on their new materials! Thoughts of taking myself to school have been put on the back burner for the time being while I play catch up with the sheer volume of video to edit. I won’t lie and say that I’m not exhausted and in need of a weekend away.

My goals for next month are: refine my editing speed, I’m too slow!! And become a rock star at color correcting!!
