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