My job search is becoming more development than search. Intriguing how a little effort or nudge can get things rolling.
In my case, that nudge was the digital media boot camp I attended in August at Columbia University. That course ultimately led to doing the Training Source video. And that may well lead to yet another video opportunity.
Kim Moss, owner of Black Bag Productions, and the woman who lined me up with the Training Source, sings with the Mosaic Harmony choir. They are looking to pull together a video for promotion and fundraising purposes. Last week I spoke with the man who is spearheading the effort to get the video done, and it looks like we may be moving forward. Downside, this would be another pro bono effort.
I think I will do it, however, for several reasons. There is no deadline or urgency, so I can do this when I have the time. The project interests me. And a video focussed on music would be a good addition to my portfolio. But I do have to be careful about not taking on too many of these.
I still need to pull together pitch materials for Virginia’s Children’s Science Center video, but I’m in good shape to do that after the holidays. I’ve got my graphic artist friend Faye working on a logo. And I should be done with my Breakthrough Art video tonight or tomorrow.
Once again, Apple’s One to One pulled me through a video edit. I’m becoming a regular at their Tyson’s Corner store. And I still marvel at the value of this $99 investment. I plan to sign up for a sound tutorial session with their sound pro, something I’d otherwise have to find a class for elsewhere. And I’m going to take an iWeb class to develop my own website.
And there’s more. I’ll blog about that tomorrow.
