I’ve sat in this same spot in my office located in the backroom of Albemarle Nutrition for almost 9 years now. During that time I’ve spawn several feature films edited for Mutantville productions as well as numerous skits and a web series from this tiny office I share with filing cabinets and storage racks. I did manage to bring in some of my desktop toys and horror posters from the 80’s to make it feel more creative. It’s been a home of sorts for me for a very long time. I’ve also produced the art for a few albums, Brento’s Budget Film Making Podcast and a web series from right here. It’s been a very artistically nurturing place.
As with all good things, this too is coming to an end. I’m MOVING to a new office in a larger facility nearby. Moving is one of those things that is always exciting, but I get nostalgic and I will certainly miss this room without a doubt. To say that things aren’t going to be the same is an understatement. The new room is much, much larger and somewhat less cozy. Eventually the new space will feel just as natural as this one and ultimately I know that it will be a lot more comfortable.
As for the new space, it’s larger but in an odd shape. I do see a lot of potential in the bones of it but I need to carefully consider how to place all my gear. It would be optimal if I could do video updates in front of a small backdrop in there but it remains to be seen if that can be accommodated. The new space might even be suitable to meet video clients in, possibly, depending on how far I go with the interior decorating. We shall see. Firstly, i’m just looking to get all the hardware in there and situated on desks and secure.
Here’s what the space looks like now. Those wooden pieces already fastened to the block walls may come in handy. The back wall is sheet rock so that is where the Posters will go. The desk will probably be facing outward on one side or the other. Unlike my current situation, folks won’t be mistaking my office for the facilities. That can grow tiresome rather quickly I find. About where you see the white window frame on the right side of this image, I imagine a wall with a door to be added in the future. I was evening thinking of wooden shelving with a hidden door so that at a glance it wouldn’t be obvious there was a door there. Nah na na na na na na, Brentman!
