Taping Timeline - Monday, January 11, 2010 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 right) 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.

  • Glare (lens flare) on Cam3. Not sure why.
  • We really need more audience reaction in the audio mix. Especially for a humorous speech. If there is no audience reaction it leaves the home audience thinking the speaker is bombing when in fact people in the studio were laughing. Bring the audience mic up please!
  • Backdrop lighting matched up blues of banners with blue gels on curtain, maybe a bit too perfectly. I'd like to try blue curtains and amber on the cyc curtain next time.
