“This past week at the studio has been busy. Saturday we filmed a 5K run to raise awareness for autism. Then Sunday we began shooting a music video. My first day on a music video set was amazing! We shot three separate locations including a sound stage/bar/ and park. I learned about lighting and set etiquette, along with terminology. I helped put together the dolly and crane and during the actual shooting it was my job to handle playback of the track. We began at 9 A.M. and wrapped around 8:30. Was a long day but sooo worth it. I followed my mentor around on set and watched exactly what a producer has to handle when there is twenty people working under you. The most challenging part had to be remembering terminology. There was so much to observe I just sat back and soaked it all in.”
