I’ve been up to this and that recently.
Doing these side jobs, I’ve been feeling really good about my camera work, and I’ve also been enjoying not being the director of the shoots, and having just a bit of direction to work with in each case. I’ve been feeling ok about work, when I’m editing or shooting, but have found that I’m really not interested in much beyond that out of my work scene. Also, teaching is looking good for the whole “summers off” bit, though when I mentioned this to my retiring 30+-years-of-teaching mother, she replied, “there’s a reason for that.”
Grad school or post-bac classes are seeming like a really good idea no matter what for, and I had a nice long talk with Marco at the farmers’ market early Saturday morning about sustainability, greenprints, urban/rural planning, and environmental studies while eating pea shoots, local pain de campagne and artisan cheese on a street bench. When I think about the heated discussions I get into, they tend to be more on this bent, therefore making these choices possibly more logical (and certainly more fundable) than film school.
Lots of people are gearing up to move out of town. Hmm.
