Work it

On The Floor!

So yesterday we held a congressional debate in our studio between Bob Inglis and Paul Corden. I was floor managing. I notice you could see Mr. Corden’s mic cords in the wide shot. I had him put the cords from between his legs to the side of his knee and out of the way. Simple, right. No. The show starts and one of the guys on camera asked me where Corden’s mic was. I look and it is nowhere on his tie or jacket!! Great! As luck would have it he answers the first question, with no mic!! We think it fell to the floor because you can hear him but the sound is scratchy. So the camera guy says you can crawl over there and get it. We were on a tight shot of him so I wouldn’t be seen. So I crawl!! Yes, crawl on my hands and knees onto the set while Corden is still talking, but I know he wondering what the hell is this girl doing!! I discover the mic is not on the floor. Where is it? As I’m scouring the floor, the camera guy tells the director not to take a wide shot because I’m on the floor. Of course he does right at that very second!!! There I am sitting almost in a ball wishing I can make myself invisible. No such luck!! I was mortified!! After what felt like ages they took another shot and I could get off the stage. The mic was in his lap!! We put it back on him and the show went on.

I go home and ask Raf did you see me on the floor during the debate? He says that was you I thought was someone’s reflection!! I was wondering what that was!!………It was your wife….on the floor!!!

Other Info:

*One of my cousins past away suddenly on Sunday. She was an older cousin but I grew up around her, her mother, sisters and their children. She was Jason’s aunt. Please keep their family in your prayers.

*The home of one of our neighbors was broken into yesterday, in broad daylight. She wasn’t an immediate neighbor, she lived near the back of the community where there isn’t much traffic. They took everything, tvs, computers, dvds, cds, you name it they took it. They didn’t have an alarm system. They are getting one now!! Not that a system would have stopped them. It could called attention to the house, the cops would have come and maybe they wouldn’t have been able to take as much. Hopefully, now people will want to start a community watch.

    I didn’t know it was Jennifer. But you did see someone is the lower right hand corner of the shot. it was not a clear image because it was a little dark in the area. jennifer is dedicated to her job and is always up for a challenge.
