I’ve been a bit busy as of late, and haven’t had the time to post like I’d like to.  So many ideas have come and gone, and I’m kinda angry about it, but on the bright side, I’ve actually had a bit on my plate lately.

I wanted to put up an image but didnt feel like uploading anything, so I picked something at random from my server.  Who wins?  Everybody.

For one thing, I’m doing more things that I enjoy on a more serious level.  I guess most importantly, I’m back into videography on a professional level.  I’ll write more on that soon, but let’s just say that it’s got some serious potential.  It’s “what I do” now.  I’m very excited about it… so excited, in fact, that I even do it in my spare time along with doing it as “work.”  I say it in quotations because it doesn’t feel like work.  It’s fun to me.  So I threw this together one afternoon a couple of weeks ago.

The beauty of it is, I shot all of that on my Canon Vixia HF200.  I’ve finally figured out a way to make the footage usable… all with free software.  You all know that I’m big on doing this stuff on the cheap, especially when it comes to computers.  I edited the video with Kdenlive, a great program that runs cross-platform, and is one of the best I’ve used on Ubuntu, period, let alone for video editing.  Once I’ve got the money for a new computer (PC or Mac, who knows?), Kdenlive is coming with me.

Aside of imagining myself a filmmaker again, I’m also very close to putting a new show on.  Stageloft is one of the best local theater groups going, and it’s an honor to be joining them for Laughter on the 23rd Floor, opening up on August 12th.  I’ll be sure to keep publicizing it on here and Facebook and everywhere else.

In fact, I’m going to cut this post short because I’m off to rehearsal in a bit.  Stay tuned in the near future for more.
