I will be purchasing, either, a bus or step van, that will become my mobile office once we are moved. This will enable me to work more efficiently on location while being able to move equipment in a secure manner. In the mean time, it will facilitate a comfortable ride across the country for my wife, three dogs and I.
Alternatively, my wife may move ahead of me to get scout houses/property prior to physically moving the household. This part of the plan will be stressful, but it is only short term.
One thing that is difficult to plan for is the location of the new studio. I have been looking at commercial property around the Portland area. Compared to Indianapolis, the rental and sales rates of commercial property are really high.
Meanwhile, I have been doing some research into the area and shoot locations. Not to mention the amount of gallery space that is available for showing work. I am quite enthused to be making these plans and while stressful, I am sure it is the right move to make.
One of the things that I am looking forward to is hanging out with my friends at Cutthroat Studios, the makers of Bad Blood.
