Bids For Kids 2012

  • April 27, 2012

Reardon Auditorium, Anderson UniversityThis was an all day shoot. Crew call was for 8:30a at the station, then we all drove from there to Anderson University’s Reardon Auditorium for the annual Anderson Breakfast Exchange Club Bids For Kids Auction, in Anderson, IN.

A Teddy Bear for every child that die from Child Abuse in Indiana last year.They raise funds for child abuse prevention programs serving Madison County Indiana.

I’ve been during this auction for about 8 to 9 years, and it’s a live auction, running from 6pm to 12 midnight tonight and all day tomorrow. But I’m not working tomorrow because I will be shooting the Pacers first playoff game.

David checking over some equipment.The morning was filled with us setting up cameras, running a lot of cables and testing equipment. It really didn’t take that long but they did add a 5th camera to the mix this year.

The afternoon was lunch and basically, a lot of sitting around with nothing to do.

Replay StationThe evening was all Auction. I worked the Replay Station which basically means I ran all of the commercial breaks, the Auction’s Opening and Close and a Guideline tape that detailed the rules for calling in and placing a bid on items being auctioned.

It’s nothing but button pushing all night.

Audio StationI also ran audio which covered the house feed that we were getting from the auditorium, the music that was played under the auctioneers and the audio for the commercials.

There was no camera work because the auction had a lot of first time volunteers to do that, which, every year turns into a headache for the directors.

    – WOW! I love all of these, especially the color ones! I have never shot a film camera other than the point in shoot I had in jr. high school, but this makes me want to try it out!
