I have been quite busty since my last post.Not everything I have to share is good. On December 10th, while I was live directing the TCC evening graduation ceremony from the front of house, an EF4 tornado hit my hometown of Mayfield, KY and tore it apart. My friends and family are OK, but the town is still struggling to rebuild. I visited there twenty days after the tornado, and the amount of damage is well beyond what I thought it would be. My host saw my video, and asked me to be a guest on my own show. So, I video directed, TD'd, and answered his questions all at the same time. The non-profit I'm part of, AFT-ID, sent a load of musical instruments to Mayfield to replace those that were lost. In happier news, I've started live directing live in person events. It's a little like directing television, only the cues I'm giving are things happening on stage in front of a live audience. There is someone there directing video for the large I-MAG screens, but I've run the whole show for a couple of events now. One of these was for a Sonic ownership group who had their convention in Norman, OK. Last week, I was hired to direct a multi-day Sonic owners group convention in Albuquerque, NM. It was a lot of long days and hard work, but it turned out to be a great experience. There was a lot of troubleshooting, and technical issues leading up to opening day, but we sorted those out, and the clients and the attendees had a great time. I enjoyed the experience, and I can't wait to do it again!
- September Update
I've been keeping myself fairly busy. We are back into production season at the TV station. Our control room has been renovated, and the space is used much more wisely now. I was just the subject of a podcast for a senior student from Murray State University over in Murray, KY. I'll share that when I get the link to it. I hope that I didn't sound too awful. I have also directed a few live events including a couple of dinners, and a virtual meeting. I'm working with Acoustic Freight Train again. I recorded their Riverwalk Rally concert in 4K, and I'm putting those videos on their social media pages. So far the response has been great! I'm not done with all of them yet, I had two other events last week, so I'm posting these as I get to them. If you want to see more from Acoustic Freight Train, check out Acoustic Freight Train on Facebook. There are several more videos there, and several more that will be shared soon. Otherwise, I may be working on a couple of other projects soon if it works out. Fingers crossed, and see you soon!
- New Opportunities
Since I last sat down to write, I have acquired a Canon 4K video camera so I can provide even better quality images. I also bought a couple of new microphones and other accessories. I have had the opportunity to do a bit of directing/technical directing for the Tulsa Ballet. That was a fun and exciting evening. I also had a fairly busy time editing for a couple of business franchises, and a video for a statewide university. It seems like the work comes in all at once, and then dies off a bit. Right now, I do have openings in my schedule to accommodate incoming projects. On a side note, I have had my COVID-19 vaccine if you need peace of mind.
