Rollin: Early Risers Toastmasters

Early Risers celebrated its 50th anniversary recently. They celebrated by retiring their old club banner. In a ceremony, they presented the old banner to their longest standing club member, Bud Rubin, Treasurer, who has been with the club for 20 years. Toastmasters Bay to Baypaid a visit to Early Risers and created a video of that visit, which will be shown in episode 2. It's also available for viewing online.

Taping Timeline

5:30 : General Crew Call

5:50 : Ellyson, Robert, David, Hari, Garylene (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 the first episode to get an idea of what we're after.

6:50 : 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 then.

We must finish by 8:00 PM as there is another show taping right after ours. Accordingly, please be prompt and willing to take direction to speed things along. We have to roll tape no later than 7:10, it will help if all questions are asked and answered early in the evening before we start taping!


  • We rehearsed lines and movements before the show pretty much continuously and this absolutely made for a smoother running show because everyone knew their place in addition.
  • Timing seemed right on. 2 minutes at end may have been a bit long but Ellyson did a great job learning and acting on timing cues.
  • During Evaluation, we got an excellent shot of evaluator talking directly to speaker. To facilitate in future shows, Speaker should sit in left front chair during evaluation to allow Cam3 to get "over shoulder" shot giving feedback to speaker.
  • Audience did not come alive until second half of show. We need a way to "warm up" the audience before the show so ambient mic will pick up audience reactions better. Ambient mic should be brought up higher to mix in audience reactions (laughs, groans, gasps).
  • Lectern should be far in front of back wall to allow Cam3 to get behind-the-speaker shot looking toward audience. Ep1 had good placement but Ep2 had lectern too far from audience to allow that shot.
  • There seemed to be an emphasis on the TM member rather than the non-member. We should re-focus on the non-member or face the prospect of losing viewership with the general (non-TM) audience.
  • Coming back from rollin to the studio, there should be a brief comment on what we've just seen--some light and brief, before going on with the rest of the program. Intro going from studio into rollin was fine.
  • Mics need windscreen installed, as pop filters. First speaker had a lot of plosives.
  • Interviewer and Interviewee did a good job of standing very near each other, but they were facing directly toward each other, profile to the audience (and therefore to the cameras!) Make an effort to face somewhat toward the audience so we get 3/4 views instead of profiles.
