I love what I do. Freelancing doesn’t always offer the most stable of work, but I have been able to do some amazing projects. For instance, I was ON A BOAT. Well, ship actually. I just got back from JoCo Cruise Crazy II. If you know nothing about it, just imagine a small con with the community feel of ECCC or PAX on a cruise ship for a week. This year we had about twice as many people as last year bringing three times the energy. I’ll put up a post on it soon but until then, know that I am still walking on sea legs and adjusting to a lack of buffet tables and 24 hour room service.
If you’re looking for a Dammit Liz…
I have more availability for projects if anyone needs an event production manager. There are a few projects I’m working on in the background but I am currently looking for more opportunities over the next few months. Due to scheduling conflicts I am, unfortunately, unable to work on the east coast leg of the Behind the Myths Tour. This has freed up my March and allowed me to work on some special projects of my own.
Well folks, it’s almost the end of 2011. It has been a crazy and eventful year for me. I met new people, lived across the country, and attended some fantastic conventions. Now it is time to prepare for 2012. I can say that this next year will be epic.
Why so epic? Well, I am starting the year off with a tour,… a Mythbusting tour! I will be working as a Production Coordinator/Assistant Stage Manager on the upcoming Mythebusters Behind the Mythstour with Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman. We are hitting the west coast in January and the east coast in March. Check the website to see if we will be coming to a city near you!
Depending on my schedule and how hectic things get, I will attempt to update my blog as we are on the tour. We shall see. I do know that there will be some adventure on this tour. From adventure comes the best stories!
I am writing this on my flight down to Los Angeles to start the five city tour of w00tstock. This trip will be my first tour to cross the nation (from LA to New York) and I am excited to see what will happen. This job is one of my favorites. Every day I “work” on this show I feel so very lucky to be a part of a spectacular show. The talent and people brought together for each w00tstock continue to amaze me.
With that in mind, I created a list of what I am looking forward to:
Super awesome surprises in Los Angeles
Going to New York for the first time and performing at the Best Buy theater in Times Square
Mini-reunion with Enforcers on the East Coast
Working with Neil Gaiman (again!)
Meeting new and talented performers
There will certainly be many exciting adventures this week. I hope to report them all. For instant updates, follow me on twitter.
