Getting things back on track
Since I got a new full time job it has taken awhile for me to get use the the time I spend at it and also figuring out how to integrate the other aspects of my life, such as amv editing into my weeks. Well I think I figured out how to do this and I now can work, and do the things I was doing before I got this job as well.
Working on two new videos now. One I like and has alot of potential. The other is a fun little side project that I don't know what to do with. Not sure where to go from here but we will see where 2013 takes me.
Another video in the bag
Well after four months of editing I finally was able to finish a new video. Posted it last night on both Youtube and the org. Hope people like it and it does well in the contests I send it too.
Work Work and more work
Well for the past few months I have been deep in trenched in work, both amv related and other media related. I attempted to try some new effect techniques in one video, however that video is too complex both concept wise and in general. But its funny, cause sometimes ideas just come to you in very strange ways. And when you try an idea that you think may or may not work, sometimes they turn out to surprise you in the long run. Plus manipulating stories of series is always a fun thing to do to. But anyways I digress. This constant stream of work that I have been doing is very cool, due to the fact that I have a fine balance between amv work, TV video work, and job search work. Plus now the whole networking thing is starting to take affect as well (job search wise I mean which is huge). I am also stepping out of my comfort zone a bit and have entered some contests that I have never entered before, one that got me my very first award and the other a second place award for. Its pretty cool and I look forward to how people will react to my latest project, as well as future projects that I have conceptualized but not started yet. In the end I hope that I am improving and will continue to improve with this amazing hobby as I progress forward into the future and beyond.
New things on the horizon
With the Boston convention behind me and new conventions, contests and now a tournament coming up it seems like now I have gotten more momentum with this whole thing. I am now in total and complete overdrive and I have new ways and approaches to getting videos done. Its very exciting.
All of the new source material I got at Boston and various other places is now on my harddrive ready for pre processing. Some I plan to use for upcoming medium to large projects and some just to have on my drive ready for use. There is alot more work I have ahead of me and I feel like Boston has boosted my desire to get what I want to get done finished.
It is all a matter of time now.
count down of excitement
The prospect that one of my videos will be shown this weekend is exciting. Not only at one end of the country but both the east and west coasts. I am feeling pretty good about it and I think, hope and believe that it will be well received, in this particular convention. After all it has done well at other venues, so my guess it will do well here. Only 3 days remaining. Excited? You bet I am
