This week was a frustrating one with the personnel that I needed support from not really available at any point. Continued focus on delivery materials for the Film has left little time for anything else. This has felt like neglect. In addition to delivery, the temporary production office will soon need vacating so preparations were made to store a number of the less critical archives from production.
Despite frustrations, being drawn into a conversation on Twitter on Tuesday led to an inspired outpouring of 2000 words on nineteentwelve.co.uk which garnered encouraging feedback. The topic had some relevance to future endeavours. It felt good to be driven. I also achieved Inbox Zero. That is not to say all work was done, but that all emails had been processed and listed.
At the end of the week, prior to a promotional trip for the Film there were some last minute emergency preparations and corrections that should have been avoided with better preparation on everyone’s part and greater expectation that nobody will have prepared on mine. Took up too much time and energy and was ultimately pointless as the promotion trip was called off.
Other than that it has been a bit of a slog with brief distractions (mostly after hours). BDO got a bit of a hacking and some good progress was made, and an old friend Ben was met for discussion of future plans.
Summary: The week maintained its momentum, but not its focus. A lot of effort for little return. Very happy with the personal output, though not all of it was well directed.
Goals: Again, to get a lot of the delivery list for the film sorted which remains priority 1. Finish off BDO.
