Academy Award Noms: Lee Smith Snubbed

Last year I listed who I thought was going to win, but this year I think I’m going to list who I want to win. Let me start with something that you’ll find running through all this commentary, Lee Smith edited the most technically impressive film of the year, Inception. You’ll find that he did …

Academy Awards Predictions: First Female Best Director?!

I think that Avatar’s going to win an awful lot.  Basically it’s going to win unless there’s a really compelling reason to give it to someone else.  That being said, as a technical achievement, the film is a marvel, and I think it winning the technical categories is completely called for.  And of course, most of …

First Days

Always a lot of build up, and then the day is really nothing like the rest will be, of course.  Ease into it, figure things out.  Everything is deceptively straightforward and laid back.  Or rather, the problems you find aren’t problems you’re equipped to address, so you get to outsource them. I still wish I …

Mild Whining and Jeopardy

Next Monday I start my new gig as the Lead Assistant Editor on a reality show.  One that my mother loves and my boyfriend hates… so I guess that’s fair.  I will be making more money (yay!) but working 10 more hours a week (boo!).  That’s like more than an additional day of hours.  And …

Weekend Recap: Nominate me for Awards!

I am still sick, I have been sick for so so long.  I mean, I’m 87% better.  Which is to say I’m not totally exhausted but I’m still coughing and my nose is still icky.  I finished my course of antibiotics, so I’m guessing there’s nothing to do now but hope. My posting is probably …

3 weeks to Christmas

I wanted to have my rewrite of Bible Con and first draft of Dyke for a Day done by Thanksgiving.  I also wanted to have a business plan for the former ready for my trip to SC at Christmas.  You know, so I could sort of test the waters for raising the money there.  So …

Makeover Show: Pre-Shop

It was an interesting experience doing the pre-shop for the Makeover show.  I tried on probably half of the store at Nordstrom’s, and then ran around to a half dozen shops looking for other things.  It was very much a modeling experience, not a makeover one.  What I mean by that is I got dragged …

Back to our Regularly Scheduled Programming: Pitching, Zombies, Glee and Otters

So, I have actually had a good couple of days.  I had a pitch with PitchQ.  They’re a service that records your pitch and posts it online.  I submitted a pitch to a specific call and got to go in and record it without paying the usual fee on the website.  It was a really …

Delinquent

I’m sorry I’ve been so lacking in interesting things to say.  At the moment I’m just showing up to work and trying to write a business plan.  I’m doing a slight re-write of my Nicholl Script, “Bible Con”.  I’m hoping to have it and a new script ready to send to Nicholl this year. So, …

Craigslist Results

Job Posted at 11:45 AM Friday.  I’ll bold the number to the ones I would actually consider.  There are 5 of the 21 that I think would be potentially worth responding to, and only 2 of them that I’d feel good about contacting.  So… comparatively, I think my resumes and cover letters are at the …
