Like everyone I guess, I’m concerned about the recession that has rocked the financial world recently. With a young family to feed, being a filmmaker these days doesn’t seem to be the best business decision one could make, however miracles do happen and January 2009 has proven to be an exceptional anomaly!
After a fantastic break up at Daylesford in country Victoria, I rushed back to work on the 4th of January. For the next two weeks, Artisan Films produced a special project for the Australian Navy. On Friday the 16th of Jan, I witnessed the master for that project go to HDCam. By Saturday afternoon, I was on a flight to Singapore. The 8 hour trip meant I arrived after midnight Singapore time. 6AM Sunday the 18th, I was up and ready to travel to Hong Kong for a quick business meeting. The meeting took place in a hotel in downtown Hong Kong and lasted for about an hour! Then it was time to board a return trip back to Singapore. That flight took 4 hours! I’m now writing this back in my Singaporean friends house, knowing I need to be up at 6am this morning to have yet another business meeting here in Singapore. Later today, I will board a flight back to Melbourne, where I will see the family for a few hours before boarding yet another flight to Christchurch New Zealand! Yep it has to be the most crazy schedule I have ever witnessed! I will update this blog along the way, however for now, I need some sleep!
