A quick update on a few things. As evident above (and the header) I created a new logo for myself. I have wanted to create one for a long time and have tried several over the years (which luckily I never used) but they were always too much. I wanted something simple but still eye catchy. Inspired by the simple name initial logo that Philip Bloom uses I came up with this one one night in my head. Sat with it for a bit then decided it was time. With the new reel in the works I figured I should go ahead and create it. I went into Adobe Illustrator and created the logo itself from scratch. It’ll probably go through different versions (with and without lens flares) but the core lettering logo is here to stay.
Speaking of the reel, I am working hard on it. I wanted it done by now but it’s about doing it right. I am not going to say it’ll be up by next week because chances are it won’t be but it will be soon. I am going a bit further with it and I want it to be something special. I’m also using it to get more proficient in Adobe Premiere so it’s a bit of a learning project as well.
There will be a gallery of my for fun photography project up very soon. I took more shots and just need to do a little post work and they will be ready to post.
There will be some news on the short film coming plus some other projects once they reach a certain stage. And there will be one new piece of gear added which I will talk more about next week. I wanted to wait financially but I figured I should get it and move forward. Plus it may help with some of the things I’m doing with the reel.
I have not abandoned the 30 Day Movie Challenge. I am prepping the next post to go up in a bit.
And on a final personal note, a year ago I decided to do something I have wanted to do forever which was study martial arts. I took kickboxing when I was a kid but have always been interested in Kenpo so I found a great place here in Chicago (website here) with a really amazing instructor. I tested on Monday and am officially an Orange Belt (which is the third after White and Yellow) which I am very proud of. Next level is Purple which I have started working towards.
A lot going on and more updates and exciting things coming. Some cold days are still creeping in but overall the warm weather is here which makes me want to go out and create so bring on the summer.
