Totally Unauthorized

A side of the film industry most people never see.

Oh, crap! A job!

Yesterday, as I was frantically sending out “Got any work” texts, I got a call from someone I’ve only worked with a few times.

“We need a dimmer board operator, and I got your name from (mutual friend). it’s three weeks of work. Do you want it?”

Do I want it? I’ve never heard such a silly question. Of course I want it.

Downside? It’s a console I haven’t had a lot of practice on, but apparently all the other dimmer board operators are working as they’re willing to be patient with me while I figure it out.

I’ve got a one on one booked at the company that makes the console, I’ve watched all the video tutorials, and I have a friend who knows said console on speed dial. I might not be ready, but I’ll sure as hell be able to fake it.


And it’s on  a stage, so I’ll have some air conditioning, which is awesome as it’s currently hot as ass here in LA.

    “You got picture? Good. When the camera passes her face, fade all the 20K’s 15% and bump up the Bag Lite 10%. Sorta semi-slow fades; you know?”

    ION’s not so bad. Could be worse. A lot of schools (high schools/ colleges) actually have those (EON and ION) now, too. Hmm…media servers/projection you’re talking! (I need you to do some pixel mapping for this part…)
