Boba Ferris Bueller or Hanging up my Blaster for 6 Months

Sometimes you have to look back to go forward. Some wise words from Ferris himself.

Time to take a break from editing JOBS.

I have in the last year been involved in a few great projects but the volume of exciting/challenging projects has deminished. Leaving me a little "dry" creatively. Leaving me with just JOBS.

No, I am not retiring or moving on to greener pastures. I can't. Movies are the greenest pasture that I know but since my daugter has arrived, Laila, I have decided to take 6 months to really look back, rebuild and reasses my editing future's direction.

I have always been Boba Fett aka a Freelancer and after recently going on many job interviews in corporate/broadcast post. I realize that I will always be Bobba Fett; don't think that my creative energy fits in that box.

So, for the next little while I will be putting my Blaster up on the wall, rebuilding my Lair (office space) and keep my ears and eyes open for the next big Bounty (media project).

FYI. For the next little while my post will be updates on my rebuilding of my "BatCave", No Spoilers post and some of my regular film perspective rants about life on set since I will be doing some Film Union Lighting technician work to pay the bills during my Hiatus. 

2011 Look back to Look Forward to 2012

This year was a bigger projects year but less volume which is good for my creative health. 
After buying a house/relocating my office space and doing some renos. The year ended quietly.

Here is some of the work I produced this year but unfortunatly, 2 of the bigger projects are under Non Disclosure Agreements, but I will post up when they are released. 

CRIBSIDE.CA: By far the best thing I worked on this year since it wasn't purly for entertainment but for a good cause. A small group of pastionate Fathers (myself included) collaborated to produce a Website to help new Dads, please pass it on to expecting Fathers and Mothers.

SHAW FESTIVAL 50TH ANNIVERSARY PROMO: A Historical Review of the Shaw Festival.

OTMP: Short series of films exploring Ontario Tourism

Now I should get Back to Work (also the name of a great productivety Podcast that I have been binging on as I renovated) and find the next Great thing to work on... Have a great year!
