Taping Timeline - Monday, December 7, 2009 5:30pm

5:30 : General Crew Call. Dinner time! We'll set up Studio, and have Dinner in shifts while setup continues.

6:30 :  (cast) please be present so we can go over details, questions, etc, and familiarize yourself with the studio. If you have not already done so, please review past episodes (see the sidebar on the righ) to get an idea of what we're after.

7:00 : Audience please be seated in the studio no later than this time. You're welcome to come earlier and hang out at the lobby but you won't be admitted into the studio (lots of hubbub!) until sometime after 7.

To move things along, please be prompt and willing to take direction to speed things along. We'd like to roll tape no later than 7:20, it will help if all questions are asked and answered early in the evening before we start taping!

Cast and Crew: If you can't make it please let Birgit or Stan know immediately.

  • Great job by everyone! Birgit handled Floor Direction solo, Denet was on-camera talent and Stan made it into the control room as the switcher. Art approached the Host's role with gusto, and even had fun with the task of "stretching" the wrapup over 3 minutes.
  • Graphics template have disappeared over time. There were no template graphics for Objectives, and the Rollin Producers is absent in the credit roll. We'll have to spend some time regenerating and re-organizing the graphics templates.
  • Speaker was not in the correct seat. Camera 3 almost got the wrong speaker for the second evaluation! Floor Director should remember to have speaker in the correct seat for evaluation.
