My last article was put up in July and then I went silent. It seems to be a fact of life that I stop creating at a random interval and have a problem restarting. I haven’t been standing still and not doing anything, but it sure seems like it.
I wish I could see the problems coming so I could dodge them. I know you can prevent being eaten by a Grue by not wandering around in the dark, but I haven’t broken the code on avoiding the dreaded dry spell.
Since I don’t seem to be capable of doing that, I’ll just commit to a few things to get the ball rolling again.
I’ve got several articles underway and I want to roll them all out before the end of the year. Here’s what I want to do-
I have an update, and what is looking like the final chapter, to the saga of the Massive Misfit. I do need to develop some more film and do some scanning but the rest of it is done. I am pleased with the results, even if they are a little quirky.
One of the long time concerns I have about film photography is the longevity and viability of the medium. What is the future of film, and will it be sustainable? I have a couple of possible answers.
I’ve undertaken a pretty significant upgrade of my video production abilities, and I want to do a day trip to film. A new video and audio editing workstation, new video camera, and an all new audio suite for voice over and possibly podcast production are up and running. The next video will be the first in the transition to 4K, and plans for even more and better things are underway.
I’m not going back to the two updates a week schedule, absent sponsorship, a lottery win, or a wealthy patron. I’m not pretty enough for an OnlyFans page, so that’s not an option. I also have some long term projects percolating that may take months. One may take a year. We will see.
In the mean time, you good folks stay safe. Take care of yourselves and each other.
I’ll see you out there.
