Hey! Where You Been?

It's been a busy time around the OldManC estate. The papers are signed and I'm just waiting on a 'divorce orientation certificate' from the other then my attorney can submit it all to the court. The state of Utah makes parents take a class when divorcing that basically says don't badmouth your ex or the kids will suffer. Good sentiment, actually. Do you think they could get certain in-laws to take it as well? Hopefully in the next few weeks it'll all be over.

In the meantime, I've been slammed with homework at school and kidlet responsibilities, plus I'm trying to get my home based business up and running. Hey, it' the only way I can get some income without sending my boys to daycare for 50 hours a week! I just hope I can pull it off. I'm working on the website and a Facebook group to promote it. Take a look if you want:

Here's the website.

Here's the Facebook page.

They (whomever 'they' are) say to do what you know, so it looks like I'm still a colorist for a while! The independent film market is really exploding with DSLR Cinematography and Utah has very few resources for filmmakers doing post finishing. I'm hoping to fill a niche there. It's a work in progress and I'm still trying to get some needed equipment (DIY style on eBay of all places), but I'm far enough along that I can do projects now and have been working on a few small things.

My bay.

Here's how it looks when I'm actually working (which is why I need sunglasses even on a cloudy day) :)


These are what I look at to see what, where, and how I'm going to adjust stuff (to get a pretty picture). Right now I have to point, click, and drag everything to get it done. For a guy who's been playing with joy balls for 15 years, it's a very frustrating workflow!

Here's the next thing I need. See those blue track balls? The plan is that I'll play with those and people will give me money. Isn't this a great country? I found a guy in Austria who's selling some (there are two panels there) in the exact configuration I need. I'm trying to work the deal right now so we'll see... So you can't say I've been sitting around moping!

Thanks! I'm hoping this will keep us fed. :)
