Here's to a New Year
Updated: Jan 2
I'm currently writing this on New Year's Eve of 2022. It's raining outside, and I wearing a Super Meat Boy shirt that I got for Christmas.
I'll be honest, I'm tired. I'm working a lot, both for money and on my arts. And sometimes I can be a little burnt out working on parts of projects that I'm not entirely in love with. Recently I've felt a little restless spending a lot of time audio editing. However that's the reality of working in the creative world, it's not all pursuing your dreams, it's a lot of hard work. And the work is not always fun.
But it's been a long year, and I wanted to take a short time, to reflect on all the accomplishments for the past year, and what my goals are for next year. Because I think that's what's going to help me for the next year for when the work get's a little less fun.
January: Was a Finalist for the Now Voice This Voiceover Competition.
February: Bought a House Baby!
March: Started a Film Business!
April: Won the Seneca Women Podcast Competition!
May: Raised about $2,000 for Filming
May - July: Filmed the Scare Actors Short Film
October: Was a Judge for the Pembroke Taparelli Arts & Film Festival
And all the while
Wrote the Scare Actors Script
Auditioned and was cast in multiple VO projects (including my first animation movie)
Started learning and executing the art of pitching
Fixed up parts of my house
Made my Cinematography Reel
Made some great friends
Attended the 2022 Poster Invasion Poster Tour and made a nice paycheck from it
Made a website for my company
Learned about running a business
Adopted a beautiful little kitten (Her name is Pumpernickel)
Produced book trailers for a few authors
And ya know, working regular jobs
And looking back, that's a great year, a lot of goals were made and met, maybe not everything that I hoped, but some new stuff that I didn't plan on was completed too!
So looking for this next year, I wanted to share my plan layout
January: Finish the work for my Podcast and Audiobook (Audition when I can)
February: Update my website, and resumes, I'm ready for a job in the creative world and potentially an agent
March: Start writing pitches for a handful of creative projects (I won't write a full script, just get the basics down for a few ideas)
April: Start writing a script to film later in the year.
May - July: Start Pre-Production, Crowdfunding etc. for my film
August - September: Poster Tour!
October - December: Film (I don't know what I'm filming yet, but I for sure want to make another project)
I don't know how truthfully I'll follow this plan, because who know what'll happen right? But I figure if you start with a plan, that's the best way to have something to work towards.
Alright, let's do this! Better myself, Better my career, and overall just enjoy life!
By the way Project Eden's Garden came out not too long ago, feel free to check it out! I play the incredible Ingrid!
And that's about it! Let's all remember to take a little break, spend a little time with loved ones!
