It was such a horrible day at work but right before I left I was checking out itunes and looked at there top 100 TV and Movie Audio podcasts and guess what I found.. Knights of the Guild was number 88… How cool was that.. talk about lifting my spirits.. it's just what I needed.
This whole tape issue didn't help with the fact that we are up against the wall to get a four hundred(hours) of tapes digitized in a few weeks. Between decks breaking down, the crappy job the camera guys did on shooting the stuff (timecode breaks ever few seconds that cause the machine to kick the tape out) it takes two hours to digitize an hour tape.
Besides that we have old Avid system that breakdown at least once a day so I have editors and producers complaining everyday about something.
It was just a frustrating day....

I had to scramble and find a fan to interview and luckily I got my buddy Bel-Rand from The Guild chat forums. He's from Sweden and the time we picked to do the recording/interview was 9pm our time but 5am his time. But he really wanted to do it so he stayed up all night. Thanks Bel-Rand.
The interview was fantastic and the rest of the podcast just flew by. This is only the third time Jenni and I have recorded but it's like we have been doing this forever. I did a rough cut of the podcast after we recorded it and it sounded great. I can't wait to add the bumpers and interviews and polish it off. It will be posted on March 15th.

Since I did the BTS stuff for The Guild Sandeep had asked if I would do the same for LON season 2. And of course I said okay. Well come to find out they are shooting two weeks straight and of course I have a daily job. So I will only be shooting stuff on weekends for the next two weekends. I did pass on my camera to Jenni and hope she or another PA can get some good footage for me to use in my BTS stuff.
Today was our first day and we were filming in Angeles National Forest. It's a beautiful location but man there was alot of climbing up and down hills. I'm an old man and not use to all that walking. By the end of the day my feet were dying. But it was a fun shoot, lots of cool stuff happened. I took about 3 1/2 hours of video and about 300 pictures. I'm bummed that I won't be with them this coming week and look forward to joining them again next Saturday.
