Well, I’m here in Florida, Day Whatever. This driving 24 hours straight thing has really fubared my sense of time. I’m pretty sure today is Wednesday, but yesterday I was sure it was Monday. Who the heck knows.
I sit here in this folding chairs and ponder the pleathora of projects ahead of me. As soon as I get to a machine that doesn’t have sixty million pieces of spyware, I need to turn on the new blog sites I’ve designed for the new bloggers, I’ve got to get a line on some new furniture for the sets in the studio. Right now we’ve got a metal-legged newsdesk, but for our tech show we need something other than a green-screen for the backdrop so that we can reduce the set-up and editing times for the show itself.
We shot the pilot for RunTime, a software and tech show coming out on the Podded Meat network. The co-producers are wanting to essentially scrap all the ideas for shows and start over because of production time, and I’m of the opinion this is unacceptable. We’ve got to be versatile and be able to produce a wide variety of shows, or we’re not going to succeed at this. I’m also of the opinion we’ve got to be flexible and adaptable, and work without a net, a concept which seems to be bothering other parts of the team.
Apparently, I’m not doing a good enough job of impressing my vision to the other members of the team since things aren’t evolving as organically as I had hoped. I’m trying to reach out and pull the talent out of those I’ve chosen to work with, and it’s not as easy as it was in the beginning. I’ll have to do some deep thinking on this concept and see where it takes me.
I was going to take this time to finally explain all the bits and pieces of the new blogging network, but as has been the case the whole time I’ve been down here in Florida, I’m being called to do more work. Even on my vacation, people can’t let me relax.
In other news, I did get the brakes fixed on my Florida car, and I’ll be driving it back to Texas this week. If anyone wants an Infiniti G20 in reasonably good condition with 114,000 miles on it, let me know. I’ll let it go for a good price.
