Finished principle on Friday, and yes I'm on jury duty. Actually I don't have to go in today so I can, what,
sleep till 10am. Go over my budget and see what's let for post, cry a little, look back over the budget, cry some
more. Yea, that's the life for us independants. Looking for work too. We don't get to kick back
like the dudes down south when they wrap. But I love it. I miss being on set, working long hours-all to create
art. Now I don't want to drop out of it and do like I've been doing. Way back, I was tired of being poor
and jumped into the business life. Did well, met a lot of people, did what I like, develope young people, gave them skills
and encouragement to suceed. But as everyone knows, business is about making money and that can be frustrating to artist
types, like me. It was fun for a while but when it came to profit, profit, profits, it wasn't fun anymore.
Hard work isn't good for you if it isn't fun. So I'd rather be a struggling artist than an unhappy retail
manager. Don't get me wrong, we all gotta do what we gotta do. Adult responsibilities come first, but hey,
if you don't have those responsibilities, than go for "it"
11:34 am pdt
So post can't begin till after jury duty.
But I do have time to go over things in my head. I'm trying to get myself in post mode, but I'm still in production
mode. Gotta get this clutch fixed.
