Indiana Roof

Nation Black MBA

  • 2012-0927

Nation Black MBA AssociationThis was a really easy event. One day setup, shoot and breakdown.

Even video world had been setup and used the day before at another event at the Indiana Roof. So all we had to do was to fly up the two screens, reset the projectors to new positions, reset the stage and build up a new camera.

My Camera position at the Nation Black MBA Buffet DinnerBuilding that camera is what I spent a few hours doing.

It should have been quick, but I ran into a problem with connecting the 55x Lens to the frame that connects the lens to the camera. They weren’t lining up. It took awhile to figure out why and then part of the camera had to be disassembled in order to make the whole thing work.

After that was done, most of my time was spent waiting for the show to start at 7pm. I was on my way home by 10:30p.

Working on a 3 day project with Markeys. Another corporate dinner. How many of those do I remember doing at United?

This one is at the Indiana Roof Ballroom. Markeys holds the Media Contract for all of their events. My first time in this Switcherballroom and I will be here again next week for the Colts Luncheon.

Interesting ballroom! It’s modeled on a Spanish village. All it needs is the people.

Setup wasn’t to bad. Two screens, 2 cameras, mobile switcher and audio. My My camera 1 positioncamera is on the baloney and I’m not sure who will be running the down cam.

Will have to bag my own food tomorrow because I don’t think that they will be feeding us.

Day 2 Thur. 08.23.12
On the day of the luncheon, we had a Audio Board2pm crew call, which I think was way to early. The luncheon wasn’t until 6:30pm. But, I’m like everybody else, if they want to pay me to sit around for 4 hours, hey, I’ll do that in a heartbeat.

The shoot was really easy.
