Just a quick update. Sadly, on August 13, a connector on a toilet water line in a bathroom adjoining my studio flooded busted, and the studio flooded. I lost my sound isolation room, and the studio is completely gutted.
It’s been a very stressful time; the original film footage, computer, external hard drives, film keepsakes and paperwork, monitoring equipment, piano, and hand-written music manuscripts were exposed to 4-5″ of water. Fortunately, my film and music projects seem intact, but until I resume work on the projects, I won’t be completely at ease. I’m in the process of figuring out how to reinstate what I had in the studio before. So there’s been a long period of inactivity on the film and music front since the flood.
The timing of the flood is particularly frustrating, because I’d finally gotten past the biggest challenges and speed bumps of the film, and was on the way to the finish line. Hope things get put together quickly so I can move forward again.
