so this blogging thing…. i’ll give it a try. i’m going to use this blog as a mix of a portfolio and a venue for ranting (i guess that goes without saying, but i need to type something here to start off with).
at the moment i’m blogging from one of the only spots in scranton where i enjoy myself. Northern Lights. while it’s not my ‘type’ of coffeehouse it is a good solid coffeehouse with a mix of clientele and decent beverages. right now i wish they served soup.
but really that’s not an interesting blog, is it? i should say something stupdendously engaging so that the 3 people who might read this will not feel like their time was wasted.
it’s march of 2009 and i’m 32 years old. i just figured out what i want to be when i grow up…. an astronaut! but i’m too old for that, so i’ll be a filmmaker instead. if you read my ‘about’ page, you know some things about me already. i do VJing (live video mixing at events) and i’ve produced/directed an independent (innacurate term – MICROBUDGET would be more accurate) feature film. it’s currently being edited by a long time friend and collaborator, Bert. also, that i’m a professor at American University. i am 32 years old and on paper i sound like i figured some things out. i like reading things i’ve written about myself, because it reminds me that i am not just the sum of the critiques i’ve given recently + alot of time on my couch watching pictures moving around a screen sometimes delivered to me by over priced satellite tv. i’m meeting the producer of my last feature in a few minutes. it’s a rainy night. i’m hoping that we get into one of those great conversations that make you feel like you can DO something. the moments when potential is all there is and you havent started to hammer and chisel the idea until you’re left with what’s really possible and you have to make it work and you hope it doesnt suck and god bless Bert if he can make it come to life.
and that… is my first blog post. catch you next time.
