When I get the feeling that I need to push myself a bit harder or that everything is going on too slowly, I like to change something in my working process. Like a small change of the working routine every now and then.
Sometimes it helps to work in another location- like the food court of one the cineplexes in Vienna. Since I get up early I am already sitting there at 7:00 AM, maybe 8:00 AM, completely alone – drawing the frames of the storyboard for the shooting of the next short film.
Sometimes, somebody who cleans the tables comes by – or some office chicks with too much make up on the way to the fitness center in the upper floor walk across the food court. But nobody stops to interrupt me. The cleaning staff does not care that I am sitting around as long as I do not leave a mess.
I like the tranquility in this usually crowded space…. And that there is a toilet nearby. Small things in life 🙂
And yes, the frames in my sketchbook above are for The Ballerina, the next episode of my horror / science fiction / fantasy web series called Shadows of Prey. The preparation of this one came out as a tough one – but I think that it will look great on screen. 🙂
