I work a full-time job doing tech support. It means that eight+ hours every day are already claimed, as I can’t afford to not work a day job. It also means if I want to do anything “extracurricular” it needs to be squeezed into whatever hours I don’t need to be sleeping. I realized I’ve probably been cutting into those a little too much when I crashed right after I got up this morning and needed a nap.
This doesn’t mean that I plan to stop working on my side hustle. This just means I need to be better at planning on what I am going to do, as well as continue practicing using the software I’m using for film editing (Filmora9).
I’m learning film editing for a very specific reason, I’ve launched a YouTube channel, Raven’s Requiem YouTube to go hand in hand with my online store, Velvet Embers Store, and plan to tackle an art project for each video, including everything from drawing to painting to sculpture and crafts. If I get myself organized enough I should be able to get some footage over the next few days, and have my first video up by next weekend (fingers crossed, we have a lot on our plates this weekend!).
In the process of launching this site I also decided that I would offer my services for people who need short ads, YouTube intros/outros or other short film editing services. Channel is here:
Athame Productions YouTube
I am also pondering the idea of making a short film myself, tackling one of many important issues I feel needs to be addressed. More on that down the road, I will need to first figure out what subject is closest to my heart, because there are certainly a lot of them.
For now I’m just trying to learn to be better at promoting myself. That includes starting a page here for the business which is below:
Athame Productions WordPress
Please, if so inclined – go like and subscribe to the YouTube stuff, I would really like to kickstart Raven’s Requiem in particular as it is sister to my store. Oh, and we have made our first ad for the store as well!
Going to try to be more diligent with my blogging going forward. Feels like I just don’t have enough hours in a day!
