Today marks the 1,500 post here on the blog Screenwriting from Iowa. Though it was more than five years ago when I started the blog Screenwriting from Iowa…and Other Unlikely Places, it just doesn’t seem like that long ago. I’m sure when I started I never thought I’d end up writing 1,500 posts.
But that’s what happened. I thought today I’d give you a glimpse into my world and what makes the challenge to write so many posts, but the rewards as well.
Last week I was in Cedar Falls, Iowa working with artist Gary Kelley shooting and editing a multi-media project that will be part of the The Planets, Reimagined concert April 27, 2013 with conduction Jason Weinberger and the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Symphony.
Today as the exhibits open at NAB in Las Vegas a DP/Cameraman friend of mine, Ben Mesker of Image Garden, is at the CrewsControl booth to promote his Jokerboxes. Here’s a video I edited and help produce with Ben that showcases the benefits of his grip boxes.
Here’s a shot of a of a greenscreen shoot I did a couple of weeks ago where I had a couple of Jokerboxes on the set.
And for the last couple of days I been shooting a four camera production in Orlando. So it’s been a busy last couple of weeks—including several 15+ hour days— but finding time to blog is actually a nice change of pace.
And there are many perks along the way and it comes from those of you who continue to read this blog—and from my recent gig that’s allowed me to wake up with this view the last few days.
