My Weekend & Grammys Work

Posted on February 11, 2007. Filed under: Grammys, MTV News, work |

… 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!

Frozen Toes and Works in Progress

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.
