I get a lot of email.
I kinda always have, really. The problem is that lately it's been increasingly difficult to answer it all. In fact, it's pretty much become impossible. And it has been for at least a year if not more. Between work, family, other life commitments, APT students-- I just don't have the time to get to everybody's email. Going forward I'll do my best, but I can't promise anything. Please don't take it personally, though. I appreciate everybody taking the time to write me.
So if you sent me a kind note of thanks- thank you so much! If you sent me a demo reel to get some feedback on, I apologize, but I just don't have the time to look at all the reels I get sent to me. If you sent me an email asking for career or school advice, I apologize if I couldn't answer you. I try my best, but I am but a solitary man and the days only have 24 hours. I feel like a heel not being able to reply to everybody.
In the meantime I am going to try the three sentences approach to email and see if that helps me. I don't have high hopes, though. :(
