What are your creative goals for October 2018?


(Bri Castellini) #1

Here we go again, and congrats to the September 2018 goal-keepers!

What are your creative goals for this month?

Mine are:

  • Edit rough cuts for 3 episodes of “Sam and Pat Are Depressed
  • Finalize basic sound mix and color correcting for my short film Buy In
  • Edit the first three episodes of my Sam and Pat companion podcast Bri And Chris Are Depressed
  • Get 20 unique posts on this thread

Look familiar? That’s because these were my goals LAST month and I did very badly. But life is about trying, so let’s try again!
