Wake up (or rather be slapped awake by your two-year-old wailing for milk), start the day, email, jump on Twitter and Facebook, shoot, do post production, do pre-production, start the bedtime routine, work, sleep a few hours, repeat.
What a fantastic recipe for burnout. I’m sure this is what most of our lives look like, maybe with some adjustments in the details, but you know, pretty much all the same.
WHAT??? SERIOUSLY? ME?!?!
What a compliment. Now while the Canadian-ness that never seems to leave me has me unable to receive the comment in the light that it was intended (or is that the ex-dancer in me?), it did cause me to shake my head and step out of my daily routine enough to start focusing on the type of work that I really really want to do, even if it’s just for my personal pleasure.
So, here’s what I’ve taken a few slices out of my past few days to finish: the Escher Projectthat I started with the fantastic Milan and Nana Misko and my assistant Sasha (who is designing the backgrounds for us). Now that I have this first sample under my belt, I’m looking to expand the project into a really fantasy land world of pieces, each one in a different environment and perhaps including movement studies…
Here’s to getting excited about our work again people!!
