Weekend Re-Cap

It was a busy weekend once again for the Holladays. Friday night, Jennie and I met up with two of our friends from work, Marina and Katie, and their husbands for some conversation and delicious Lucky's food. It's always nice to spend time with co-workers outside of the building. Expecially so I can catch up with their husbands, who I only usually see about once a year.

Saturday, Jennie, Karyn and I continued to perfect our skiing abilities. The 7:11 Running Club has, at least temporarily, been re-named the 7:11 Ski Club. I'm still probably the worst of everyone, but I'm practicing. I fall a lot, but I'd like to think that it's because I'm being daring and trying to get better. The funny thing is that it never hurts...until about 2 days later. I think I might have fractured a rib last time...kidding...I'm just a wuss. After ski club, we went to Great Lakes Crossing for a delicious food court lunch. After I left for WDIV, J and K keep playing at GLC for a while. I hope you girls had fun!

Sunday, J and I attended our first seminar at the Detroit Film Center. "Film A-Z" was an 8 hour workshop that went over the logistics of creating a film in Michigan. There was a wide variety of people in attendance. Some want to perfect their video skills while others were interesting in funding opportunities and budgeting. I've always been into the idea of shooting on film. I've recorded countless hours of videotape, but film has a different look and takes an entirely different set of skills. It's very mechanical and scientific and I think that draws me as well. Next Saturday, I start my 12 week "Intro to 16mm film production." Awesome!
