I got the okays i needed for interactive/senior project, so I'm definitely going with the existing light blue/brown hindi theme for the online portfolio that i've already begun working on (but in flash because it's a flash based class), and i got the okay to redesign the douglas theater (identity, signage, packaging).
i called april asking if she had blue prints or a fire escape diagram or something showing the layout of the theater. nope. i didn't even know it was legal to not have a fire escape diagram o_O I'm having to piece together a floor plan of the martin twin from my head, using the knowledge i've gained from spending many miserable hours there watching all my friends hook up and having no one pay attention to me. I think i've got it pretty close, but i have no idea about dimensions and i know that's gonna bite me in the ass. I might need to get april to take some rough measurements as well as take pictures for me.
this project is gonna take at least 6 weeks to complete just on its own, but i know it's going to kick ass and is going to look amazing in my portfolio because i've done so much.
i have preview this quarter! i still haven't finished redoing all the stuff i need to do so my stuff is presentable. I guess i'll find time between my heavy school workload and light freelance workload. I'm still picking up random freelance jobs, eventhough i haven't finished one i agreed to a month ago :\ (which i feel terrible about... but i'm confident that it'll all work out and will be all the more amazing for the wait). since i haven't exactly gotten paid for one of my arrangements yet, i've taken on a couple of easy projects to make up that money that i've essentially lost. at this point i don't believe i'll be doing business on faith in someone's character ever again, no matter how much contact i've had with the person.
