Site Update: Additions and Improvements

Aug 16 2011 by Brendan Shick Add Your Thoughts

I haven’t posted in the blog in a few days; however, that doesn’t mean I haven’t been busy managing the site. Over the past few days, you may have noticed additions to my Film Reel page, which, as promised, now includes a sampling of my full-length projects.

My Set Photos page is also starting to come to life, one album at a time. Keep an eye on that for the next few days to catch all of the updates. Other pages have also been added or improved, most notably in the About Me / Contact section.

All of this new content has required quite a bit of time on my part, mostly going through old archives and content to select and organize the best elements to add to the site. So, you’ll have to forgive me if I don’t dedicate as much time as I’d like to the blogging aspect of the site for a little while.

In the meantime, if you’re a reader who mostly follows through RSS and haven’t actually visited the site recently, now’s probably a good time to come back and have a look.

Among the site updates still in progress are updates to the My Gear section, more set photos, a page dedicated to still photography, and several other smaller additions.

However, don’t think this means I haven’t been making a list of future blog posts for when I have the time. I’ve got a number of ideas in the pipeline, including some posts on cinematography, links to recent findings of interest around the web, a post on my inspiration for creating this blog, and more.

Additionally, in my hunt through old content, I’ve rediscovered several old articles I wrote for other outlets, many of which, upon rereading them, are actually quite thought-provoking. In fact, several are certainly worth re-purposing a bit for inclusion in future posts here.

Be sure to check back soon (and in the meantime, pardon my mess)!
