Professional Resolutions Checkup

I should have done this about 2 months ago at the halfway point of the year, but it’s still worth checking in to see how I’m doing with my resolutions. In January, I made 5 resolutions for the year. Here’s how I’m doing, and how I intend to steer myself in the right direction.

1. Dig deeper into After Effects.

I kind of have. I’ve taken more time on AE projects to go into new areas, work with cameras and lights more, etc. I haven’t done much on my own time.

2. Kind of learn Motion.

Fail fail fail. I really need to focus on this.

3. Actually watch all the behind the scenes stuff on my DVDs.

I’ve caught up on many episodes of Doctor Who confidential, but I haven’t taken the time to watch behind the scenes on DVDs. YET. I will.

4. Take time to refocus on my craft.

I’ve done OK with this, but fall will allow me a little more time to do this.

5. Do a few personal projects. Something new, just for fun.

I’ve done pretty well with this, but I’d like to get one more project in before the end of the year.

Not too bad. We’ll see how I did in December.

Also, blog series post coming up for reals.
