Yes, I know it's been a while since I posted. I've been busy, in case you haven't heard.

So, as of today, I've been at this job one week. For those of you in Canada, that means it's been one week since you looked at me, cocked your head to the side and said, "I'm angry." I've completed my first three assignments, each of which consisted of simply selecting an iconic image and reducing it in Photoshop, occasionally making adjustments so that it will "read" when reduced. I then get to create a banner ad in Flash, which at least affords a little creativity. The challenge is to vary the techniques I use for each one, so that I learn a little more each time; my earlier assessment that Flash was just Premiere with the Photoshop toolbar...yeah, that was a load of shash. Two hours to create a simple gradient...aiyah.

I know some of you are fascinated by this, while others spent that paragraph thinking about soup.

Now, since I'm slightly ahead of the game (about half a step. Half of a very small step), I'm taking today to crack the flash book and start learning this thing for real, and maybe start making some notes toward the next iteration of my demo. That's the fun part right there, coming up with an aesthetic theme, figuring out the actual tools to do it, designing the interface, putting it all together...maybe I'll even teach myself DVD Studio Pro, since DVDit! is, well, a toy.

So, how's the bean with bacon?
