Pictures

Joe drew pictures for the B3 organ. I believe these may have been inspired by me. I mentioned something about drawing pictures for the instruments.

Live Production

More specifically, bad mics.

Wireless mics, I think this really goes without saying, but they really suck. We have so many problems with them. I speak mostly of body worn packs and their headworn mic counterparts. It’s almost always a bad connection which causes loud popping noises. Or a slipped and/or mis placed E6. Tonight, it’s who knows what. I had a mic cutting out. It sounded like the pack was losing connection. But, when he moved it, it would come back. So this leads me to believe it was rubbing against the cheek enough that it  blocked the mic enough to cut the audio out.

Either way, it sucks. It’s always a balance of whether it’s more distracting to have it drop out once or twice or for someone to go on stage, interupt and switch the pack out and hope and pray its the pack and not the E6 … ugh.

Today’s Work

My work today consisted of moving cameras around. One had to be packaged up after switching it’s lens with the one that belongs to it and then putting the lens that was on it, back on the camera it belongs to (confusing?). Then I had to move camera 2 (house left) down front. Then, I had to get a tripod out, and move camera 3 (the old robo and the camera on my desk. left side) to camera 2’s old spot and set it up as wide. Then I had to switch the triax around, so the front row cam was still 2 and the one up front was camera 3. Then I packed up the SDX-900 (camera on my desk, right side) and went over to Perryville, set it up, set up the CG program. Directed and then left when we were done.

A Mad Russian’s Christmas

This is the song I think we’re doing for our all out lights show at our Christmas Services.

Lots of hits at the beginning for lights. And then of course it breaks out in the middle.

I can’t wait!!!!!

IMAX

So I’m watching Storm Chasers and Sean Casey is trying to film an IMAX movie about tornadoes.

While watching he mentions he shot 500 feet of film which is 1 IMAX roll and about 90 seconds. So…how do I know that, I googled and I also found out that it costs nearly $2400 for every 90 seconds (3 minutes) of filming.

That’s a lot of money.

Just a little info you may or may not know.

My reminder

To not screw up again and play the video before the second song.

Delta Awesomeness

Some mistakes here and there, but nothing too bad.

I can’t believe I get to do this on a weekly basis. I direct for this. This is my video work. Camera guys are student volunteers. Sony D50’s if you’re curious. Fujinon lenses. Student minsitry. Casey is the leader here. This happened 10-22-2008.
