Hi Monday, it's Tanner. Hope all's well.
Sorry I wasn't able to get back to you last week; It's been nuts the last few days. Turns out you're supposed to move out of house when they're doing renovations. Either that or you just live in the house without a working bathroom and sleep next to piles of sheetrock dust. Nah, I'm good. Let's go stay with Anne's mom for a few days.
I will say changing things up hasn't been entirely awful. I discovered the glory of the self-service dog wash. You literally pay a place $10 and use their bathtub, water, and supplies to wash your dog and then THEY clean up afterwards. Clara the Dog was nowhere near as impressed.
Oh, and I wanted to mention that I got to speak on a panel during an event for Oklahoma college students studying broadcast journalism. I got a call a few weeks ago from a nice woman from the Oklahoma Broadcast Education Association asking if I'd be interested in speaking about my experience as a freelancer and "alternative career paths" during their OETA-OBEA Student Seminar Day.
Panel Moderator: "What is one thing you'd have done differently in college?"
Me: "Study engineering...?"
Needless to say, it went well. Thank you for asking.
In terms of "actually working," my desk, editing setup, and camera gear were all packed away during the house renovations, but there were a few things this week.
You remember David Bizzaro? He's the puppet guy and director I've connected with up in NYC. We've shot a few things and he hit me up about DP'ing season two of The Bayr Show. So that's rad. If you're in NYC October 15th there's a screening party at the Made in NY Media Center to kick off the new season.
Oh, and I got to fill in as 'DP for the day' on a feature a long time buddy of mine is directing out in the middle of nowhere Oklahoma. You should go give Ryan Staples Scott a follow.
The plan is for us to move back into our house early this week, but we'll see how that goes. Hit me up if you need something; I'll still be around.
