I’m completely fried. I recently wrapped a long run in episodic television production completing three premium cable shows back to back. Professional camera people tend to be very high endurance. I’d say it’s prerequisite for dealing with the marathon hours and occasionally very stressful work conditions we’re subjected to. Long days are a great opportunity for improving your skill set and fattening your pocketbook but the inherent problem is that there’s typically no time left for anything else. That and eventually you’re going to burn out. Even the saltiest, most grizzled veterans in the business need a pause every now and again. So I’m taking some time off to reset; to travel and pursue my creative interests. I don’t predict I’ll be doing any technical writing from the road but I will be blogging / photo publishing whenever there’s a decent internet connection.
Just touched down in Hong Kong. My phone isn’t working at all even though I’m supposed to have full international coverage. An immediate reminder to get used to inconveniences and technology failures as I'm sure it's only just beginning! Here we go.
