fun at work

i have an unusual project at work right now – shooting video tutorials. the boring tutorial part is being dressed up with some distracting, creative stuff to suck people in. it’s immensely fun. and i get to use video editing software and really make good use of the Mac i have at work. i can’t imagine tackling this project with a windows box. i’m sure it can be done, but i wouldn’t know how to do it, and i wouldn’t already have all the software i need.

once upon a time i wanted to be a filmmaker. that didn’t happen, but i wonder now if i missed becoming a film editor. i don’t really have a strong enough eye to be a good cinematographer or even director, but i’m pretty detail oriented and i generally find editing to be quite enjoyable. it’s the same combination of creative and technical that i find satisfying in web work. who knows?
