Going to Sundance has been a great networking opportunity every time we have gone. It is common place to return with a good size stack of business cards each trip. This year was no different, even though we were only there for 27 hours. I did find, though, that the quality of the cards was better this year, I think because of the fact that we had so little time and only went places where we knew we could do business. But no matter how many business cards you have, no matter how many of them are actually good, eventually they have to be input to the contacts list. I did that today. Data entry isn’t my favorite thing, but it is part of doing business no matter what business you’re in. Google Sync and my Blackberry make it as easy as possible, but it’s still a time consuming process. I also like to keep notes on each contact to help make sure I remember where I met them and who I know them through, etc, and all these steps just add to the time that it takes to get things done.
Today’s picture is a shot of my computer screen after I completed the data entry.
I also went over to Dean’s house tonight to watch the season opener of LOST. He has a regular LOST group that he watches with and I think I’m going to join their little circle. We had a really good time discussing the theories and how we think it’s going to end and the BEST part is that Dean leagally downloads the episodes WITHOUT ANY COMMERCIALS!!! It was so nice!
I think if I spent more time on this blog in particular I’d be able to draw a nice connection between the contacts data entry and cross referencing the information I remember from LOST and make a nice comparison about how the two actions are similar and act like a metaphor for life or something. I should really work on expanding these more.
I’m going to go hit the hay, I’ve got two commercial auditions tomorrow and I’m still having a problem with the RAW Without a Box profile and there are five scripts left to read before I’m caught up on that – it’s a lot to do and I want to wake up early to try and get it all done.
See you tomorrow!
