… Check out what I have been helping to build all evening for Overdrive…
See Blige, Mayer, Luda, T.I. and more gab with John Norris on the Grammys red carpet.
… I’m going to be here til midnight or so working on various Grammy related things, making this weekend entirely about production… On Saturday I shot a short film that I will be submitting to The Lot. It was a lot of fun but also a lot of hard work. I haven’t made a short film since I moved to NYC, and although I was exhausted after it was over, I told Jennifer that I was happier than I had been in I don’t know how long….
I’ve been eating way to much food while working, because my desk is near the kitchen and there’s a ton of cuban deliciousness in there and a ginormous fruit bowl. Someone help me!
Nina Simone singing an Isreali folk song (awesome)!
Eretz Zavat Chalav u’Dvash (“Land of Milk and Honey.”)
Another edition to my slowly growing list of film resources…
Not Coming to a Theater Near You assumes a bias towards older, often unpopular, and sometimes unknown films that merit a second look.
So there is a lot of “news” happening right now related to death that many media entities are reporting on, including MTV News, and it’s made me aware of a disturbing trend that I have seen among bloggers… Writing a post specifically on something sensationalistic/what everyone is probably googling right at that moment, for the sole purpose of showing up in results.
I’m making a personal choice not to do that. ..Just because I know it might mean I will get more hits/subscribers, doesn’t mean I am going to take advantage. I mention my work and tag it as such when it’s relevant, however the point behind this blog was to create a public face and to share current & future creative endeavors with the world. I will have to pick and choose what I think is appropriate to mention here about my work life, and to be honest I am a little tired of hearing and working on assignments related to death.
I would rather finish up this week on a good note. A real one, that actually applies to my life – Tonight I am going to a dinner for someone’s birthday. There will be a lot of people there who I have never met before, which should be fun because due to this awful weather I haven’t gone anywhere in a long time. I wore an incredibly cute skirt today with heels and within the first few minutes of being outside, my toes lost all sensation. Luckily I brought black low top converse, which go with everything.
I am going to live it up tonight, and Saturday I am spending all day shooting a short film. I am excited about this because the finished product will be my first short film that I will make available on the web, so stay tuned.
…The Pistolera music video for “Cazador” is almost done! I will premiere it here next week for the whole world to see, before it starts showing up on video channels that I will name on a later date. This was my first time directing/producing/shooting a music video so obviously, I am psyched.Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( None so far )
