It’s so very close now… Tomorrow night, Thursday 7.30pm UK time, is the launch of our very own TV show, ‘The Production Office’, live from Living Spirit Pictures HQ at Ealing Studios. I don’t want to say very much about the content or the special guests we have lined up, just to keep it a surprise for you, but I know its going to be a lot of fun and 100% about making movies.
Right now of course there is just the holding page (unless you go there during the broadcast), but come tomorrow night, it will crackle into activity as we begin our very first show.
We have a vision mixing multi camera setup in our teeny tiny office, and just getting clips, idents, straps and guests in and out on time is going to be a feat I can tell you. What I have learned about making a live TV show over the last few weeks! But it’s also SUPER exciting. I mean really thrilling. James who is vision mixing live is genuinely giddy! It’s that same creative energy and buzz actors get on stage, directors get on set… So expect the show to be energising for you too!(pictured here with me is Judy Goldberg, co-host for the first show, grab taken from a rehearsal).
I have to admit though, our first two guests are close friends. We made this choice because we needed guests who wouldn’t react with a raised eyebrow if we have a complete catastrophe… ‘cos that kind of disaster is a very real possibility! We have thought everything through, done tests and rehearsals, but the best laid plans… you know the deal, you are a film maker!
We have a long long list of other guests, some of whom have already confirmed for shows over the coming weeks. And if you have any ideas or personal contacts, we would love to hear from you. This is YOUR show too, you the audience make it what it is.
OK, so tune in Thursday, 7.30pm UK time… Tell all your friends to tune it too. Get involved. Ask questions live. Connect with other viewers live. It’s a truly global, multimedia event!
