I'm back!

After a long time away from this blogger thing, I'm back with recent news. The Heart organization who were going to commission my Dragon Animation, decided in the end that 'they didn't have the budget for this' despite many meetings and assigning me bigger projects, they then decided they didn't want to pay me for my services. A lesson learned there then; always negotiate a fee at the very beginning, not half way through and after many hours spent on a project for no return.
I have gained full time employment within a locally based food photography business. I airbrush images of food products that end up on the supermarket shelves. More recently I have been taking the photographs too. Good to have job security within these shaky 'credit-crunch' times.
We recorded a new Goober Patrol album a couple of weekends ago (well, the drums and bass so far) it's sounding nice, the best songs we've had so far in my opinion and can't wait to hear it finished. Wonder if a label will put it out? Hope so.
Vanilla Pod gigs have slowed down a bit, but it appears a label wants to release our new stuff- not sure how i feel about it as I have had dealings with this particular label before....
After my Goober Patrol video, I have had alot of interest from bands wanting me to make videos for them which is very flattering. I am currently in production of a video for a very well know 'Grind' or hardcore band from back in the day who are now more popular than ever. This has been alot of work so far and I'm working every night on this after work, totting up a nice 14 hours a day I roughly spend in front of a computer. The band were really nice and easy to direct. I will post the video once it is completed. Again, I am looking forward to seeing the completed version of the video. More soon....
