PLANNING: If only…

August 11th, 2007 by Susan


It’s been nearly impossible for me to force myself back into the creative groove, and this, based on what I’m trying to learn, adds about a hundred cargo cars to the engine car of a train heading uphill.  Uphill without directions.  And like with an aerial map instead of street turns and a big red star.

I thought I knew what I wanted to do and what I needed to learn in software.  After watching many, many short film clips, there’s now a kettleful of ideas that go nowhere.  The different forms of animation, the different methods of presentation, the simplicity and the intricacy all appeal in some way until I view something entirely different and want to go that way for a while.  Excitement builds even as doubts about ability grow.  Even the end goal is just a case of self-satisfaction rather than a career since age is most definitely not on my side. 

Mass confusion is what I am.  Wonder how that would look in video.
