Man, I’m bubbling!
Great day. Finished working on the show Numbers tonight… a really fun little scene with Aya and Ali. I’m eager to see how it turns out.
I’m still in the middle of my shoot week on Without a Trace, and I have to say, I was so pleased by the energy on both sets. Things moving along at a snappy pace but still a freshness to the work. Friendly crew and actors.
Typically shows with long runs develop this nice family bond. It was one of the best things about working on Gilmore Girls, and I can definitely feel it on both of these shows.
But a good portion of the day I had my mind on something else. This is gonna sound ridiculous unless you know me well… (okay, maybe you’ve read enough of my blog to have what you need)… but I’ve been thinking about killer business cards.
Specifically business cards for myself.
I’ve been saying I need cards for almost a decade. But I never commit. I find myself in situations all the time (pitch meeting, development meeting, sets, etc) where people give me their card, and I have to do the whole pat-down-my-chest-and-pant-pockets… “Actually, I don’t, sorry.”
But after reading this article, I realized I’ve been holding out for something special. Something different. Something that I know is out there, but that I can’t quite put my finger on.
So… I’m gonna try a new approach here; one I’m definitely not used to when it comes to side projects. I’m gonna send an SOS to the world. Twitter, Facebook, MySpace (yes even you), Interwebs:
…. . .-.. .–. / — . .-.-.-
Anyone have an idea for a card concept? Just a concept. I don’t need a design yet, just great ideas. And I’d love your help in finding one.
Here’s the criteria:
- It’ll need to fit my name, my email, my twitter address, and my blog. So the concept should keep that in mind. Meaning a fortune cookie probably won’t work.
- The materials shouldn’t be too difficult for a guy like me to get his hands on, construct, or have constructed on a reasonable budget.
- It should be original and stand out. Something that people won’t want to throw away. And you can certainly use the term “card” loosely the way the Lego guys did. But keep in mind I have to carry them around with me.
- It has to fit to who I am. My personality, style, interests, what I do for a living, etc. I hope by now my blog reflects that a bit. If not, you can certainly ask me any questions.
You can contact me any way you’d like, publicly or privately:
email – firstname.lastname@example.org
Twitter (if you @reply include the hashtag #cabreracard and we may be able to turn it into a discussion)
If you comment here on this post we may be able to turn it into a discussion as well.
I’ll be working on my own ideas as well.
If I use yours, I’ll include a small spot on the card that says “concept (or design) by” and any URL or name you’d like.
What do you think?
