the day after

Last night Glee premiered to about 11 million viewers here in the US.  We're quite happy here in Gleeville, high fives all around.  There was much celebrating in New York this past weekend, with the cast appearing at the FOX upfront presentation.  Now the hard work must continue.

We are finishing up episode 8 of our 12 episode order.  After completing this episode, we will have 3 days of clean up photography to finish up all the odds and ends that we need to complete any previous episodes.  Before beginning episode 9, we will take a 9 day hiatus.  This will give the writers and the music folks a chance to get a little ahead of our production schedule.  

Congratulations to all at Glee for a job well done on the pilot.  Great reviews all around. Looking forward to the fall, and the additional episodes to follow.

Baby Ball Gag

Funny name, but a great windcreen. Shown here on a MKH50. This all but
eliminates wind puffs on big quick moves as well as makes it available
for some light exteriors.

ep 107 day 6

We are just about done with episode 7 of our first season of Glee.  It's been a great ride so far, much more to do.  We premiere the pilot on May 19 at 9pm on FOX.  Hope you can watch.

Here's a view from my world this evening.

I pretty amazed at the amount of playback and music that we do on a regular basis for an episodic TV show. It's become routine for us, but in any other situation it might seem overwhelming. For each episode we have anywhere from 4 to 8 full music production numbers per episode. We bring in extra personnel as needed for each day of playback. It gets busy. Very happy so far and our production workflow has been solid.  Touch wood...
