So I sat down to think about why I haven’t touched this blog in two and a half months and that last entry pretty much tells the story. Turns out starting a business takes a lot of hard work and long hours and an emotional and physical toll (channeling Mike Rowe here) that doesn’t leave much room for writing self-indulgent blog posts about how awesome I am.
The business, in this case, is a new division of an existing company, but that makes little difference. Since March of this year my every waking thought has been on video production, and building a department that could not only present quality work from outside producers, but produce our own, and I only now, in August, feel like we’ve gotten somewhere and I can maybe take a breath.
We went out to LA with a crew to cover the E3 2008 conference and managed to put together \several episodes of video coverage of the event. I think it’s entertaining. Six episodes are up now, and one or two more are forthcoming. If the response is good enough we may do more video using a similar format. We’re still refining the process and our approach, but I think we’ve hit on something that could be a lot of fun, and we’re having fun making them. So I call that a win all the way around.
So that’s all been keeping me busy, but the wheels seem to be greased now and I might get some breathing room. Who knows? Perhaps even enough to start updating this blog regularly again, but if you hold your breath waiting for that one, be sure there’s an EMT standing by with oxygen.
