A month later… and I’m sick.
Well, I guess its actually a little longer than a month. Almost a month and a 1/2. So what. Of particular insignificance, I got sick with some Influenza Type-A, or some shit, that is apparently immune to the flu shots (not that I got one, but it explains why everyone in the house was sick too, and they did get shots).
Piranha R3D progress has been slow the last 2 weeks… really its been slow since I left for the inauguration.
I started on another project built around embedded linux. It’s cool and should be a fun challenge. Hopefully I can stick with it long enough to get it out the door. My greatest plague.
Nothing new much on the Film front. The MPAU’s Senate Bill 14, Amendments to the Motion Picture Incentive Fund, is up on the hill, progressing as best it can in an economy where the state is slashing every budget possible. SB-14 is relatively unique in that, despite its fiscal note, actually makes the state money. Without it, the state’s economy loses more money than the money spent for the incentive. Getting our legislature to understand that (and the general public) under such fiscal scrutiny is another matter though. So, we hold our breath.
I’m really hoping it something good though, because the RED has sat doing nothing for the last 3 months. I had a little slush fund in the bank for making payments, but its about ran dry. Economy sucks, and winter in Utah makes for a slow filming season. Hopefully the incentive will go through, and the next 6 months will be busy.
