I’m sure some of my readers may be wondering why I’ve been M.I.A. for a few days lately…but there’s been a reason for that…

I’m so incredibly excited to announce that I am the newest intern at H.D. Loft Studios!!

The search for an internship, or a way to begin my career here in Portland in video and animation production, has dragged on for more than 2 and a half years for me.  In the meantime, I’ve been channeling my energies into this blog, which has grown by leaps and bounds…but I always hoped that it would be more a hobby for me and not my sole source of income.  Since having my son I’ve wanted to go back to video production as a career, but just couldn’t seem to make things happen here.

Finally, this is the first step.  H.D. Loft Studios is a brand-new Portland-based production studio set and prop and wardrobe rental house with an amazing collection of vintage items, a full-capacity wet/dry production stage and photography cyclorama, and a superbly talented crew behind it.   (With mind-boggling credits throughout the music video and fashion industries!!)  I can’t even put into words how humbled I am that they thought me a good enough fit to bring onto their team!  I’ll be interning with them until the end of Summer, and I literally bounce out of bed every morning thrilled to be able to go to work.

So far I am working on social media, brand strategy, photography, and prop styling for them, but as they grow I hope to assist in any way they have need.  It’s so exciting to see how things develop!



P.S. I’m still going to be updating Chic Steals and continuing posting here, though I’m still trying to figure out how to work around my schedule and still produce timely content.  I hope all of you will forgive me if I am not so regular in my posting schedule and there may be days when I’m just unable to update.
