Plan for the Fall!

Although the chances are better that I'll get struck by lightning.
As long as we're all on lockdown, I figured it would be a good time for me to remind you to plan your garden for fall pumpkins! 

A quick search will reveal a number of seed companies, and I'm sure if you do a little research, you'll find some with good customer reviews. You can click here and here for full instructions about how to grow pumpkins.

I prefer the classic Howden pumpkin, myself. They're wonderful for carving! But if you're really ambitious and have a lot of space to play with, you might try these Big Max seeds. They can get upwards of 100 pounds!

In any case, it's a good time to consider growing your own pumpkins or other goodies for canning or preserving this coming harvest season!

Social Distancing? I Was MADE for This!

From the opening sequences of Creepshow
I'm very lucky in that my office is small and I can work at least part of the time from home! So while I work, I've plugged in a couple of my old favorites. They're movies I can half-watch while plugging in numbers to a spreadsheet because I've seen them a multitude of times.

Like Creepshow! Hooray!

Life has been busy, aside from the plague. My boss enlisted me to produce a small, proof-of-concept film which was shot this past Sunday. It was pretty crazy. He told me when I got back from vacation in Maui that we were shooting in two weeks and we had no crew or equipment as of that moment. I did get some input from the director and the compositor, both of whom I've known for a little over a year.

It was stressful, but it was so much fun! Even though we had a couple of crew members to replace at the last moment, it all worked out very well, and everyone got along beautifully! I wish I could share more, but, well. Those pesky NDAs, you know? 

I've wanted to start expanding my knowledge so that I can move out of being an executive assistant and into post-production. Production would be good, but it seems a little intense for me at this point in my life. I'm excited that I have my first Producer credit under my belt, regardless!

In any case, I hope this finds you and yours safe and healthy, and that you're taking your work from home time and making the best Halloween props you can imagine, or at least organizing your work space so that you're ready to go when the weather turns good!
