Producer's Log Day: First Episode (Almost) in the Can!

Okay, so let me start this off by saying if you go back a few posts I finally got the weirdly messed up html coding on Thurs. Sept. 10th to work and there is now magically an entry there! (Wonder why it didn't post to the top? This is exactly why I'm not an IT guy... though sometimes I wish I was. Well, not the guy part. Except maybe a little when I go camping.)


Went and shot our anchor stand-ups for the show yesterday to wrap everything up, and I snapped a few stills while we were there:

You know, that's the only thing about these "virtual sets" that I'm not crazy about. Looks great after post, but just not as exciting for the stills I share with you guys!!!

I also shot this little update as a follow up to yesterday last night, and all I can say is here it is:

OH! And I went to the USC v. Ohio State game in 3-D at the Galen Center last weekend and will have a post with pictures and chaos from that as well up at some point today. Heyyyoooo!!! (Sorry- XL Slurpee is never, wait, always? no probably never a good idea. Except most of the time. Maybe I should take a lap now before my hyper spreads across the interwebs...)

Producer's Log Day: 4? 5? I don't even know anymore! (Eeeep!)

So I've found something out in the last two, nay, three days here. In order to stay on top of this blog as well as my massive pile of weekly work, I am going to have to work really really really hard. But I will do it I say! For the people!!! So anyway... let's get a recap going up until today. Monday was so insanely busy there wasn't a second to shoot, and I pretty much forgot until I woke up at 5:45am Tuesday for our first interview shoot only to go "OH SCHNIKES! THE BLAHG!!!" and that dear readers, is when I shot this little gem:

And then? And then? Well, I grabbed clothes and ran out the door to meet my crew bright and early for our first (and at that time potentially only) interview of the day. I had my fingers crossed that our second shoot would pull through later after lunch, but I'm not gonna lie- I was definitely worried pretty much until 1pm when I finally received confirmation that they were able to find a break in the afternoon schedule for us. So somehow we pulled everything off yesterday, and I couldn't be happier. Stay tuned for thoughts from our in-studio shoot later... this project's really coming together fast!
