All of the vids, all of the vids October 30, 2011

Today I applied for some cool jobs, filled out lots of forms to claim back all the tax I payed in NYC, ordered business cards (for real), and went about collecting all the videos I’ve made over the past few years; a portfolio if you will.

I would have just uploaded them all to this blog, but if I ever need to show anyone my videos for work, I’d prefer them not to see the bullshit I put up here. However I did feel bad about leaving you (singular) out of the loop, so here’s the link.

Do a lot of work October 3, 2011

My friend Alan posted this quote on Facebook to DCUfm members just starting out, and it sort of resonated with me, especially since last night I sent off my lengthly application for the much sought after This American Life internship (Ira Glass, who the quote is attributed, is the host of This American Life).

So from now on, I vow not let a day go buy without doing some sort of ‘creative work’. I feel like I’m doing alright so far. I had the good fortune of having to churn out a lot of creative projects in college, but I can’t lose this advantage.

I’m back in Dublin now, and tomorrow I start a new internship, but if you want to do something with me in our spare time; a video, a script, a podcast or a painting, and you feel we have similar taste, let me know. Because something I’ve learned, independent of Ira Glass, is that it’s a lot easier to motivate each other as part of a group, than to do it alone.
