Studio E Visit Response
The visit to studio E was one of my first times ever being inside of a television studio.
I always imagined what it might be like and in some aspects I was correct, but I never imagined all of the detail that goes into being on television. The smallest things can be some of the most important and critical parts of producing a video project such as lighting and sound. From my point of view, even after watching how to works some things in the studio, I still see the whole experience as overwhelming. I still don’t know how to run the control board, and adjusting the sound in the studio was quite the task as well from what I observed as well. This just shows a great example of how people make their jobs look easy, when in reality, it is a little more complicated than what others may think. I really liked seeing the green screen, I just wish I had gotten a chance to play around with it. It was neat finding out about 3 point lighting and the importance of it, along with learning about the different ways you can play with the type of light you are using (i.e. hard, soft, different color hues, etc.). I learned one thing about the studio and creating a video that turned me off from it, and that was the fact that it takes forever to finish a shoot. There are so many things to take care of, and all of the fine tweeking of light, sound, etc. it takes a very long time to set up the shoot (and it sometimes seems that it takes longer to set up a shoot than it does to tape the actucal footage for the video).
