It Just Takes Some Time

Media production takes time. A lot of time. You have to learn a ton of stuff, then figure out how to apply it and use it for your productions.

I spent four hours editing MathTacular4 this morning, came home and replied to a question from the Forums, and then spent four more hours developing a script for the web series we're working on. It's gonna be HUGE. (Nothing like a little hype.)

Oh, I also dumped some footage from a children's play from Sunday that I'm converting to DVD for the cast and crew. Which, I guess that's a side lesson that you probably already know about: If people find out you know anything about media, you get asked to do everything. Which can be cool, but also annoying if it's something you really didn't want to do in the first place.

I'm not saying that's where I am at the moment; just noting that it happens. And it happens often.

Add a blog post to my day and that's curtain. Crazy.

I wasn't able to watch any more 24 Hour Competition videos today, but I did respond to several comments back to me. Thus far it has been very positive. People like getting honest, real, and helpful feedback. I hope I can continue to offer that in the days to come.
