The stage is set.  Oklahoma City State Fairgrounds

The gear arrives.

Intensity makes me stronger.

What should I plug this into?

Building a Coke wall.

Coke products are not just for drinking.

We can actually make walls out of it!

Steve Summers doing laps during rehearsal.  Gotta' get a workout in today.

Is the internet what powers this broadcast? Or is it the coffee?


You can never have enough computers.

Please don't distract me when we're about to go LIVE.

What did I just say!?

Our production manager works hard at making sure the logistics of each project is outlined and solidified. But with multiple projects to juggle, not only is it excessive to have the tiniest detail defined before a shoot, it's not really necessary. A lot is worked out when the crew is thinking on their feet.

With SREB's main event, there were initial concerns with audio and lighting, but the A/V company working the event allowed us to plug into the sound board.  We didn't have to worry about mics for individual speakers.  The A/V company also put up some spot lights for us, so we were able to get great exposure.

For the shoot in one of Georgia Tech's classrooms, the walls were all concrete with very high ceilings which can cause echoing.  We were afraid we'd get terrible audio quality, so we used a boom mic and tried to keep it out of the frame as much as possible, while staying close to the speakers.

The last impromptu shoot we did to get more footage was at Kennesaw State University.  There were large windows with natural light pouring in.  In some cases sunlight is wonderful - but in others, it risks ruining the shot.  And the weather that day was cloudy, which made the light even more inconsistent.  Solving this issue involved a solution as simple as adjusting the blinds a certain way. 

These are all common challenges, but in the end, with a few adjustments and good coordination with available resources, we're able to overcome them. 

The video is now under final approval, and is just about ready to show. Check back with us in a few weeks for feedback on the final video.
