There are two reasons for this. First is the 5 acres we live on and now that spring is essentially here we have a lot of winter damage to clean up.
Secondly I have taken a board position with the Film Alliance Northwest which is a non-profit dedicated to providing a forum and educational opportunities for those in the entertainment business, those who would like to be and those who are merely curious.
The organization is in a period where it is redefining itself and there is much to be done. Perhaps I'll muse on the politics of getting things done on this level for a change. For instance what type of permits are needed to film in the city and county and their costs.
Perhaps most importantly, and one of my tasks, is figuring out how to generate funding to keep it going. No easy task this day and age.
So there you have it. A change of direction and pace. I hope those who have followed me over the years will continue to do so and perhaps I'll pick up some new readers in the process.
