New TV Show

Well, what can I say? The new TV show was taped yesterday. After all the planning, and preparations, once it was all done, I went home and slept for two hours. I forgot the energy and inertia that is involved in doing these shows. Good news it went well. So well that the station not only liked the pilot, they want a weekly show starting as soon as possible. Most likely in the fall. But we have the opportunity to do a few this summer.

I will let you all know when the show will premiere on Shaw TV. The show will air sometime during the week of July 10th, 2017.  If you are not a Shaw Cable subscriber, the show will be available online once the show airs on the channel.

Stay close! More to follow!

The New Show

Well, taping of the new show is done! Today time seemed to be both fast and slow.  The part I know best is the interview. Timing is everything in an interview. It’s a surreal place as an interviewer as while the guest is talking, you have to formulate the next question. Since I never script an interview, it’s not as easy as it looks.

Good news is the show will air the week of July 10th and after that it will be available on the station’s YouTube channel. I will share it all as soon as I know the air dates.

Springtime in Istanbul – Behind the Scenes

It was a cold day, but the sun came out. It was springtime in Istanbul. Looking back at this behind the scenes shoot. It was a hectic rush and lots of people and gear. The video was excellent, however, the audio never got to the camera. Thus an 18 hour day of filming interviews and stand-ups was lost.
Well, this experience taught me two things:
Yes, grown men cry, and two… always have your phone in your shirt pocket recording audio.
