Blog 2: The Return of the Blog: Electric Blogaloo: The Blog Ness Monster

Hey, folks! Long time, no read. Lots and lots of stuff has happened since the last post, and even more since my ill-fated attempt at watching a movie every day for all of 2016. Here's the short version: I moved to Austin, Texas to work in film in a place that wasn't LA or NYC. Maybe someday I'll do a public analysis of everything that went into that decision and how it worked out, but for now, I'm happy to say I'm back in the Midwest, baby! I'm living in Madison, Wisconsin and there's a cat asleep next to me as I'm writing this. In my time in Austin, I spent a lot of time thinking about my relationship with filmmaking, what my goals are, what I'm trying to get out of this endeavor, etc.. So, to make a long story short, I'm making a renewed push to create things that I find authentic and compelling. This means music videos, mini-documentaries, and maybe even some narrative stuff. I've developed an interest in 3D motion graphics, so I might talk about my quest to understand Cinema4D better. I'm going to try to get back into making music (it occurred to me that since I've moved away from scoring stuff, my URL doesn't work anymore. Gotta stay on brand). I might start a podcast! I'm going to use this blog to talk about the different projects I'm working on, so be on the lookout for new stuff coming soon. Thanks for tuning in, I'll talk to you next time.

Here are some videos I made from my time in Austin. Enjoy!
