Been A Little *Too* Busy

Since the release of BRAINROT, I haven't been able to focus on my film stuff. For better and worse (on a personal front), I got a job that utilizes all of the skills I have been honing on for well over a decade. Obviously, this is a very good thing because I love my job. It is intense, but in the best way. It requires me to use every tool I've ever learned, while also expanding the skill sets I already had.

From exercising every aspect of filmmaking, I have also gotten more proficient in graphic design and website construction. This job has been the most professionally fulfilling experience I have ever had.

The aspect of my work that I haven't quite mastered is work/life balance. I assume that will come with time because I'm only a couple months short of my one year anniversary. I am very task driven and when my work requires as much as it does, that is my only focus. While that is a good thing, the free time I do have, where I would typically start constructing my next project, my thought process always goes back to how can I make what I do with my job that much better. My brain always goes to work.

Now, that is something that I am grateful to have and I'm not at all complaining. Just explaining. I'm fortunate to have a job where creativity reigns supreme, I just need to figure out how to carve off a sliver of my free time to shoot that dumb stuff that I love. And I think I am beginning to approach that point. Obviously that's not confirmed, because I still haven't made anything in a good while, but something may be coming down the pipes soon.

In the meantime, the future is looking very good. Emily is doing well after her surgery, and I am glad I was given the opportunity to have a career doing something that I love. I work with some of the most creative and intelligent people I've ever met and I'm excited to see what happens next, both personally and professionally.
