Launched my blog on my site

Happy New Year Y'all! We're actually off to a good start this year, all things considered. I've been wanting to put out a blog for a while now but I keep overthinking it… as I do. So, I finally just…did it. We'll see where this goes.

Employed to Self Employed: 
A Conversation with Chris Johnston


The AIGA San Antonio chapter had the opportunity to host documentary director, producer, editor, and cinematographer Chris M. Johnston at The Impact Guild in San Antonio. Chris owns and operates Truthful Studio, LLC. based in Las Vegas and San Antonio. He talked to us about how he launched his company, keeps crazy busy, should hire employees, but made the decision not to grow OR buy a building instead kept his studio compact, mobile, and ready to travel!
