Back on the Radio

That’s right Boys and Girls! I will be back on the radio tomorrow morning. I will be a guest on The Morning Jolt with Stytch and Sketch from 9 AM until Noon. The show can be heard in North St. Louis County on KCFV 89.5 FM. I am hoping to have the show available as a podcast early next week, so anyone who can’t listen live can still hear the show.

I will speaking about film and video production in St. Louis, as well as be part of the discussion about 9-11 and its effects on the entertainment industry. It should be a great show and I encourage you all to make time to tune in, even if only for a little while. And if you do catch some of the show, please let me know what you think. I will also be forwarding all comments to Stytch and Sketch as well.

I’m excited about being back on the radio and I hope you all can share in the excitement too by tuning in.

Happy Birthday to Me!

Yes, it is true. Last Friday, September 5 was my 33rd Birthday. I actually had to work that morning shooting video on a freelance gig I get fairly often. I slept most of the afternoon. I know… I’m a bum, but I stayed up the night before after working at Bar 101 so that I could get to the gig in O’Fallon on time. I did go to dinner with my parents at a Brazilian Restaurant in Chesterfield. Then, I went out with a friend and met up with a couple others. I won’t bad mouth anyone or anything, but I will say things did not go as planned. A friend tried to hook me up with a free bottle for my birthday. (Which was AWESOME in my opinion) It just turned out that her co-workers were not as nice, or as honorable, so no bottle came my way. My buddy and I ended up spending twice as long playing Roulette than we actually did in the nightclub.

As for the rest of the weekend, I kind of let it go. I didn’t do much. But, I did watch the season premiere of Entourage. I’m glad it is FINALLY back on HBO.

Now that my birthday and the weekend have passed, it is time to BUST MY ASS and find what work I can to get back on track. Over this week I will be contacting and submitting my resume to as many productions houses in St. Louis, and away, as I can. I need to get on any and all the freelance lists I can. Any input, ideas or referrals are GREATLY appreciated. I HAVE to find more work and make more money. I actually got a call today to work tomorrow, Tuesday, on a Commercial, so things are looking a little brighter. Now let’s see how long we can keep things moving along.

On my own projects, things have been changing significantly. Projects from the back burner are moving up, others I no longer work on at all. But I’ll save all that information for a future blog. Thanks for dropping by and a HUGE thanks to all those who wished me a Happy Birthday! It really does mean a lot. I’ll talk to you all again soon.
