People tend to glamorize the writer’s life…but the truth is it’s really not so very glamorous! For me, it means lots of time spent in a laundry room.
But recently I had a rather surreal moment–a TV interview on Fox 8 in Cleveland, Ohio. Surreal, yes. Glamorous, no. So much of behind-the-scenes TV is not the small piece of what you see on TV. Instead, it’s big, chilly warehouses, huge equipment, booms and beams, more huge equipment, and a lot of hurry-up-and-wait.
I still can’t figure out this green screen thing.
This cameras are actually robotic. As I sat there waiting to be interviewed, the camera came rolling toward me, then focused in and out. Very Star-Trekky!
I love this pix of my sister! She was more nervous than I was.
I didn’t get pix of this, but during the commercial breaks, the hosts went straight to their iPads or iPhones. I caught one of them fixing hair, using the iPad as a mirror.
Even though the waiting time was slow…the actual on-air time flew by. All in all, not glamorous…but it was fun.
