Still Not Flying First Class

That title’s yet another reference to my Fray Day story, in case you were wondering (if you’ve not heard it yet, it’s still available, at least for now). The reason I bring it up is that it’s time to fly once again, this time off to sunny Orlando, Florida. Adam and I are taking off to do some “live” video work for a meeting we’re holding down there. Basically, we’re just shooting an on-stage activity to be projected onto large screens, so the audience can see what’s going on; kind of a JumboTron for the health care set. It’s a bit counterintuitive, flying two people down just to operate a camera for a couple of hours (we’ll be heading back late tomorrow night), but compared with what the hotel was going to charge for a cameraman, it’s a bargain. Not to mention our meeting staff knows what they’ll be getting.

Well, mostly, anyway — the camera in question’s a Sony DXC-series camera, a higher-end DVCAM system we’ve never worked with before, but we were able to track down a user’s manual on the ’net. Okay, a service manual, but most of the user information’s in there, too. We figure that between the two of us, we’ll be able to figure it out...

After that, Ginny and I will be flying up to Chicago next week for the first in a series of shoots for our next case-study video. I honestly wanted to get out of this one, but Adam will be finishing up the edits on the poorly received CEO video (we did some preliminary reshoots yesterday, and I think... or at least hope... that we’re on the right track there). Of course, I did insist that we be back before Halloween — there’s no way I’m missing that.

So updates may be sporadic across the remainder of the month, but sit tight — I’ll be back.

P.S.: A little housekeeping note — I’ve put in a Search box courtesy of FreeFind, after finally giving up on Blogger ever implementing a search function. It’s not ideal (the results don’t show the search string in context, for one thing), but it’s something; try it out and let me know what you think.
