Just kidding! That was supposed to get your attention and be an April fool’s joke, but I guess I’m pretty late with that and as I sat down today to write this update I suddenly realized I’m even later with this blog post about the progress of the film and haven’t in fact posted any updates since January!
It made me wonder if you’ve begun to think that I’ve abandoned ship, hence the title.
But don’t worry I haven’t abandoned the project. I’m still here chipping away at it whenever I can. Over the past 3 months I’ve been struggling with my work/life balance and it’s been quite frustrating and challenging to juggle it all. I wish I could work fulltime on the film until it’s finished, but unfortunately, I can’t. This film, like my last one is a passion project, a labor of love. I still have to earn a living editing other people’s projects plus I also have a new part-time gig teaching at a local film school and of course I have to find that all–important time to spend with my family. That doesn’t leave a lot of extra time to work on this project, so I chip away at it when I can. It’s not ideal, but I’m happy to report that despite this piecemeal approach I am making progress and the film is coming together.
I’m itching to show you something tangible from all my efforts, but I’m not quite there yet. Hopefully, I’ll have some sneak peeks to share very soon, but in the meantime, thanks for your patience and continued support and I appreciate the emails of encouragement that I get from time to time. It’s a great motivator knowing that there is an audience out there anxiously awaiting the finished film.
Thanks for hanging in there with me.
Well, onward I go, one step at a time.
