Demo Done

OMFG, the Demo is finally done! There was a lot of hard work to get this thing just how we wanted it. I’ve added the video (MOV) to our Production site, burned the DVD master, and have begun archiving the Premiere project. With the Demo out of the way, I can finally begin looking at the full movie. I plan on spending some time finishing up some photo scanning tomorrow, then I’ll be diving right into the script and storyline, which will take be about a week to pound into shape.

What else has been going on?… Well, I’m reading an excellent book that I borrowed from Millard called Whole-Brain Thinking (Ballantine) which is great. It’s a “self-help” style book that talks about people that are left-side of the brain vs. the people that are right-side of the brain, and discusses techniques on how one can successfully blend their two hemispheres together. I’ve been lacking this flexibility for some time. Those of you who know me know that I’m more left-side (analytical, anal-retentive, mathematical) than right (creative, spontaneous, intuitive). Hopefully I can train the brain to be better at this. Mix some grey and white matter.

What else… Oh yeah… Easter just went past and we all congregated at my place. We ordered a bunch of Sonny’s BBQ and pigged out while watching King Kong on DVD.

I’ve also decided to go on a detox diet. My meals have been littered with rice and beans, fruit and vegetables. And no caffeine. Damnit. No caffeine is really fucking tough. I’ve had a constant, dull headache since Friday morning (the day I started the detox). The only cheating I did was the turkey and pork (and a couple of diet sodas) on Sunday (why fight it?). The food thing is easy, but the caffeine is hard. I’ve tried to replace it with decaf Green Tea, but it’s not helping much. I hope in the next week or so I’ll get over this perpetual hangover and my head will clear.
