I know, I KNOW. I’ve been a very naughty blogger, facebooker and general upkeeper of my goings on this year…and a half. Like, really naughty. And, it’s been so long that I couldn’t just post anything without explaining my apparent trip off of the planet. I’ll try and keep it short (I know what you’re thinking if you’ve seen me in person, very funny.)
If you’re not already in the loop, my background is in the film and television industry and the south has been kinda happenin’ with regards to the movies and shows we have filming in the region. So…at the start of 2011 I was called upon to flex my skills in that arena.
And, while it may sound crazy that one would sign up for 18 hour days, tasked with accomplishing the impossible (you don’t realize you did that until it’s over and you say “holy crap, yay us!”), that’s what the business is all about and I kind of love it for that reason. The people (and animals!) you meet, the things you learn (oh, so much random trivia) and the hard-working and talented team that goes through it with you makes it all pretty amazing.
Therefore, when a movie led to a TV pilot, led to a TV show, led to another movie (away from home), I simply couldn’t say no. Along with my adoration for photographing animals, the production business is also my cat’s meow. I’ve been blocking available time for clients whenever my schedule permits and I’ve met so many fabulous four-legged friends this year! But what with the hours and the traveling and the lovely bags under my eyes, it just hasn’t left me ample time to blog and go on the facey-spacey.
Please forgive me for my web absence and know that I feel an obscene amount of guilt (it’s in my genes, I can’t help it.) about it. So, if it seems I’ve disappeared without a trace, I really haven’t. I’m just trying to balance the working and traveling with the decompressing and, if I’m lucky, a little family time here and there.
Thank you for understanding and continued support!
