Call Time

It never gets old.  That early morning call time, heading to the location to set up.

It seems like only yesterday when we met for our production meeting, going through the setup for each video.  Each component bringing their expertise to the project.  Then the finalized script was delivered and today was set as the date.

It never gets old.  The excitement and anticipation of getting on set.  Almost seems like it takes forever to get that coffee and drive across town.

When I arrived, camera and sound techs were already on site.  There is something wonderful about transforming a space into a set.  A bare room explodes with activity as lights, camera and  props are placed and I see it.  It is as I wrote it, before my very eyes.

We are producing nine videos for a client and like every project, I feel deeply connected.

Then at the first talent call time, they arrive, one-by-one at first, then by families.  Today we are to have 15 kids, 4 teachers and 2 parents.  We have set up a class, workshop set.  For a few minutes as setup was completing, I listened to the sounds of the set.  It never gets old.
