Unfortunately, I haven’t had as much time to post here lately as I’d like to. There’s been a whole bunch of different stuff happening with me, most of it good, that’s prevented me from doing a lot of posts. A month ago, I got laid off from my job, which has prompted me to move out into the world of independent video production. Thankfully, I’ve found some work and have a few things in development that will hopefully make some money.

Obviously, no one wants to be laid off, but I think this will be for the best in the long run. I didn’t really want to work a job that wasn’t creative and zapped all my free time by making me work the 3-12 shift for over a year. I wanted to quit eventually anyway, so this just accelerated the process. It’s let me focus more on doing creative stuff, and the sort of independent production that I’ve always really wanted to do. Basically, right now I’m doing the job that I’ve always wanted to do. The question is, can I sustain it as a viable way to make a living for the long term? I don’t know yet, but at least I can enjoy this time, and keep networking and building up a client base.

So, if you need any video services, anything from making a commercial to shooting a family event, send over an e-mail and I’ll put something together for you.

But, shouldn’t that mean I have more time to blog? Well, I’ve been putting a lot of time into preparing the very first book to come out of this blog, a revised and expanded of my Invisibles postings from 2007. It’ll have all those in edited form, plus some other content, including hopefully an interview with Grant Morrison. It’s coming out from Sequart, who previous released Tim Callahan’s Grant Morrison: The Early Years. We’re looking at a likely Q3 release this year, and now I’m going back and revising and expanding those posts for the book release. Look forward to being able to pay money for the same content you used to enjoy for free. But, this content will look so pretty on your bookshelf.

So, that’s pretty exciting. Once I’m done with that, I should have time to write up more of the stuff that I see. For one, there hasn’t been any ongoing TV show to watch lately. But, starting next week we’ll have Battlestar Galactica back, and a month after that, Dollhouse will debut. So, there will be plenty to write about there.
