It's been a year since I last wrote a blog post about becoming a freelance creative. I only wrote one post because 2014 gave me a great job and some awesome adventures! I got to be an assistant producer at a great company in my hometown. Who would have thought I would have had a film-related job in Easton, MD?! I got to write treatments, edit commercials for broadcast, cast for commercials, film all around the shore, film a television series in Baltimore and on a farm in Western, MD, and meet all sorts of new people.
However, that job is no longer a 9-5 job which opens me up for some new opportunities. I am now trying to navigate the freelance and film world. It's a scary place, but very, very exciting. I'm excited to have clients, new projects, and time to be way more creative. If you have any advice for me, I would love some!
Some things I've decided to focus on more as I move forward are video editing and design. I have found a love for both video editing and design as I navigated through internships and jobs. Design, specifically, is a new adventure for me. I fell in love in college and then continued to learn more in my internship at Charleston Magazine. At W Films I had started helped businesses around the area with their promotional materials and found I really enjoyed them!
Ideally, I'd love to start working on projects that include...
invitation design, promotion design, landscape/travel photography, still photography/continuity for films, and music videos/performances.
I am still located in Centreville, but I am taking this opportunity to explore different places. I'd love to collaborate with my friends all over the country! I'm currently planning a trip to Los Angeles in May, so LA friends, I want to see you!
This summer is wide open and if you know me, it's unusual for me not to have things planned out at least 3 months in advance, but I am changing. I am thrilled at the unknown right now. It's terrifying, but I am going to embrace it and throw myself at projects that I love.
If you want to collaborate or have any ideas for projects, I'd love to talk! Email me, text me, even tweet at me, I don't care! I am working from home now, so I need social interaction as much as possible!
Thank you to everyone who has supported me in the past. I couldn't have been here without you. I can't wait to see where we can go in 2015!
