Standby to Zoom. Standby 31. And Zoom.
It’s live TV. The set change must be fast. And done with precision.
Take a look at this recent set change sneek peek of the popular comedy show, Saturday Night Live.
Good job, John. In 35.
Come on, that big wall’s gotta go, and we’ll be alright.
7 go in one. And go 1. And dissolve. Announce!
Just get out of there. Ready 5. Pretty wide. You’re the best!
With any production or special project in life, even in the workplace, there is always lots of behind the scenes work to pull things off that look effortless. On the contrary, it often involves a lot of effort. Remember that when you feel like you are working hard. It takes hard work and planning!
UpTime Funk – Behind The Scenes
Here is a behind the scenes look at one of my favorite video parodies. It’s created by SUSE, a seemingly pretty hip MSP (managed service provider) in the UK.
Maybe I’m biased since I work for a company that offers MSP services and I can so relate to the hook, “Don’t reboot it, just patch!” The lyrics are a riot. I can relate to being up in the middle of the night “patching” websites. So yeah, I love this one.
The Flash: Behind the Scenes “Pilot”!
Lastly, here is an oldie but goodie behind the scene footage from “THE FLASH” TV Series. My husband, son and I just binged watched two series on Netflix over the course of about 2 weeks. We loved it, and cannot wait to see Season 3 hit Netflix (IMDB.com mentions a Season 3–altho it is not the same Season 3 that is on YouTube, as Youtube has a whole OTHER Flash TV series).
Here is the Blooper reel with a bit more behind the scenes footage:
What behind the scenes role would YOU want to be?
Who would like to be? One of the guys counting down the time and directing behind the scenes, one of the persons moving the props, the director, producer, the camera grip, another role, or no role at all?
I personally would not mind ANY behind the scenes role when it comes to a stage play, television show or movie. From screenplay writing, to an extra or set design consulting, it all sounds fascinating to me!
