Moving on and staying busy
I've been doing a pretty good job at that despite not being employed. Since I've graduated from school I've taken on various non-paid production jobs to build experience and add to my resume.
My most recent offer was to be the production designer on a short film about gay marriage. I loved the script. I loved the directors vision and was very excited to be involved. Another gig came along though, that overlaps with the production dates, but this one is PAID. I have to take the paid job even though I am not excited about the script at all. It's hyper masculine and full of violence.
That's how it goes sometimes though. You gotta go with the flow and trust that things will work out to your overall vision. Plus, I'm just grateful to be getting paid for my work! You have to make sacrifices and see the bigger picture.
As Albert Einstein said, "life is like riding a bicycle, to keep your balance, you must keep moving." Stay busy, stay balanced.
