End week 5

We are done with week 5 and almost completed with episode 103 for Glee season 1.  We currently have a 13 episode order, but who knows...that could always change.  

Starting to settle into a groove with all the playback and sound recording duties.  We have added quite a bit of gear from what we started with on the pilot.  A playback cart has been built for permanent use.  We are installing powered speakers, JBL EON10's, in the choir room set.  So much playback is in that set and the speaker stands and cables on the floor have become problematic.  An install will save a lot of work and make things go so much smoother.  Speakers arrived on Friday, install happening this week.  

My loaned/borrowed stereo mic and spare Comtek base station is about to go out on another show, so I have to make some acquisitions fairly soon of those items.  I love using the stereo mic for crowds, football games, etc.  It just adds so much to the wild tracks.  Post seems to enjoy them, so we'll keep trying to deliver.

I am very happy about this show.  Can't wait for it to air.  And it sounds good too.  :)

Just ordered a Sennheiser A5000CP circularly polarized antenna.  Full nerd on there.

I'm looking forward to introducing it to my wireless receiver path.  Should have updates soon.

Eww boy.  Yep...long night.  We started out the evening with a 5:30 call.  This was fine except we work in Los Angeles, which means nothing moves very fast on the highways from about 3pm till 7pm.  It took me just over 2 and a half hours to get to work.  I needed my brain washed out as soon as I got here.

Well, we're working hard to get this 3 days of work done in 2...and we are almost done.  We have the sun coming up in about an hour and a half, which will bring this all to a halt.  Then the joyful ride home into the sun.

I'm currently sitting in my tent and it's 2:25am.  Filming tonight in Long Beach on a football field at Cabrillo High School.  Pretty tired now...drinking coffee.  The TV shooting schedule is a tough one.

We are winding up week 4 of shooting for season of Glee for Fox.  Having a great time, really.  I think I can speak for my crew here and say we are very happy to be a part of this one.

Here's a pic of me earlier...I was more awake then.
