- A week. And if I'm
being honest? Feel worse than I did when the bomb
dropped. I kind of did it to myself though.
I kept texting my NFL contact and felt like
it was possibly still gonna happen and yesterday got
the final: nope. It sucks because Apple
announced their specs for what THEY consider
"Immersive Video". We honestly had no IDEA because
they were pushing spatial video so hard but these
weird prototype cameras kept getting leaked. Welp,
it's VR180 video shot in 8k at 60fps. Exactly what I
shot for the NFL and for the New Zealand project.
- I was even willing
to defer payment until it's sold because I'm
THAT CERTAIN this will sell... and NFL Media
STILL can't do it because the powers that be have
frozen EVERYTHING in development because as I
mentioned before: they won't own the rights. It's like
I was about to do a bunch of work on the
Delorean... but then sold it before I did it as-is.
Well I'm not doing it NOW. What's the point? I won't
even own it?!?! Fuck that.
- I get it. It
still, fucking, hurts. Which means, for the first time
in over a decade? I actually needed the Journey
- Man it's weird to
see a journey song in VR180. It's like climbing back
INTO an old journey entry. Hmmm... could be a cool
thing to do.... too bad I can't change my house back.
Anyway... I'm gonna be better after this. I've already
made some calls, setting up meetings with the Apple
Vision Pro (oh of course I pre-ordered that -
it's a NECESSITY now that I have to pitch) I'm back in
focused mode. This was a bad week. Molasses.
I haven't felt the molasses in SOOOO LONG.
I believed SO HARD and it took something as
ridiculous as THE SUPER BOWL and needing to
hire accountants and start an S-Corp to make me
finally go: OK, fuck me, this is
- ...and now
I start over with an unbelievable (and
undeniable) reel. Here we go.
