I did a lot more editing over these two days. I changed around the structure of "Business as Usual" and I think I have what I want now. The show should air very soon.

Edit Day

I edited the Polar sequence more today. I edited together a rough cut of the Coletti's segment and worked on the Art's segment. I got ready for tomorrow's casting call by printing out the resumes of the people coming.

Late Post

On Friday, I went to Coletti's Market and Raynham Wine and Liquors to do shoots. I started off the day at Coletti's market. I filmed Mike, the owner, and got footage of subs being made. I went to Raynham Wine and Liquors later in the day and filmed a wine tasting.

I had no work today because of President’s Day.

Two More Places

I visited Art's Bakery today and shot an interview with Art. I also toured the back and saw a little of the pastry process.

I also visited Pleasure in Pain and interviewed the owners about the shop. I shot around the store afterwards.

1st Episode!

Today, I completed the first episode of "Business as Usual" and I believe it is ready to air. I also wrote up questions for Pleasure in Pain and Art's Bakery.

I called more places today and was able to set up a day with a salon. I uploaded all the music I got in the mail to my computer. I also worked on an ad to put in the paper to get businesses to call us so we can profile them.

These days mostly consisted of a lot of editing of the footage I have. The first episode of "Business as Usual" should be done very soon. I also worked a lot on editing the Polar footage.

I made a lot of phone calls over these days and set up a lot more shoots. I am currently doing two places on Thursday and two places on Friday. I also will have a casting call for my show next Wednesday. I have been getting a lot of emails about it.

I've been doing a lot of work over these days trying to organize, edit, and set up more shoots.

Today, I shot more footage at Hilltop with Alicia as a host during the afternoon. I also shot the revealing of the podiums at Town Hall to go in the podium sequence.

Blue Hills Brewery

I visited Blue Hills Brewery today. I got to meet everyone there and interview Andris, the Brew master. Alley came today to be the host of the show. We shot the interview segment in front of a bar area. We also went into the room where the brewing happens and Andris explained the process the beer went through. I got a lot of footage to work with. We shot more about the separate beers after the tour. Alley and I finally shot the intro part outside of the place. It was a good day of shooting.

Tue/Wed (Polar Visit)

Tue: I came in and did more editing today. We then got all the equipment ready and drove to Worcester to go to the Polar Factory. I drove separately from Mike and met up with him and Alley, the host for this segment, there.

We met up with Chris Crowley and set up everything to film the interview. We used two cameras on this shoot. After the interview, we went into the factory and filmed Alley interviewing Chris throughout the place. Mike was filming mainly their interview and I was trying to get B-roll of the place. I got lost twice and the second time Mike had to come find me. We got over an hour’s worth of footage on the factory floor for each camera. It was a fun shoot and interesting to see the different beverages being made. I shot Alley outside giving an introduction last.

Wed: I uploaded all the footage we shot yesterday. This took a long time to upload. I began editing and organizing the footage we shot.

I wrote up questions for Blue Hill Brewery for tomorrow. I looked at some people that responded to Mike's craigslist ad about finding music. I think we'll have some nice instrumental music to use.

Super Bowl Sunday Replies

I replied to everyone that showed interest in being in The Upside of Disappointment(TUOD). I sent out scripts to people and now I need to set up a casting call time.

Friday, February 4, 2011


I worked all day today editing together the first episode of "Business as Usual". I got a lot of work done and I am happy with what I have completed. It takes awhile to put together a half hour long show. I had already laid out most of the Rick's stuff, but the Novella stuff needed a lot of work. I also made all the text cards for all the questions.

Also today, we continued looking for a host on Tuesday and still don't have one confirmed.

JB Interview

Today, I finally did the interview with Julie. We did the interview in the studio and she set up a table with designs on it. She brought two people with her to help and be in the segment. The shooting went pretty well and I got some good footage. She gave me a flash drive with a bunch of photographs of weddings she did so I could use them when editing.

I worked a lot in editing today. I think I finally have what will go between questions. I am going to use this white lettering on a black back drop. The footage I shot with my friend isn't going to be used in it, but I'm glad I finally know how I want it to look.

Bad Weather Again...

I didn't have to go in today because of the weather. I am getting lots of responses back for "The Upside of Disappointment" ad that I put up. I hope to have a casting session sometime in the next few weeks.

I meant to post something yesterday, but I never got around to it. Yesterday, I went to the Town Hall in Raynham to help move the podiums, but they were already moved when I got there. I went back to the station and did a lot of editing on Business as Usual. I added in the segments I shot with my friend and worked with the clips I already had. I did a lot of clip labeling.

I made more phone calls. I have an interview at Polar Beverages next Tuesday at 2 PM. I also may have something in a month working with The Jockey Club.

Today, the snow resulted in another cancellation. I did however get my confirmation for so I posted up a casting call for a show I want to make. At this point, I have 4 people to already respond. I hope to get more and have a casting call.
