omg these past 2 days starting my job on this show have been overly crazy and not the good kind of crazy
the format of the show changed and all the producers and people have been scrambling for the past 3 days trying to rework stuff and re-write a lot of peoples contracts because until 3 days ago there was not a plan to have a live shot from the Georgia Capitol on every day of session for the legislature. during all this confusion and the talent and myself that have been working at the capitol have been out of the loop not really know what is going on just trying to shoot video and make whatever video packages we can since noone is giving us any assignments. during all this chaos i was forgotten and dont have a press pass yet for when the legislature starts monday morning, i find this out last night when one producer asks me if i have it and if i am ready for monday morning to shoot footage of everyone arriving. so yeah... noone ever gave me the info to get my press pass on my own because another producer said they would take care of it and a different producer said that normally the coordinator person takes care of it except that the past few weeks that person was gone because she recent got married and left a list of stuff that needs to get done and i guess my name was forgotten for the press pass list. really stinks when everyone is all stressed out and going crazy and then that happens and it was something i could have done yesterday if the information was given to me while the big shots were having a meeting that i think lasted all day
i was just told focus on shooting video and get what i can and grab some interviews. the capitol building has been so empty past 2 days we were lucky to get 3 lol. cant wait for everything to settle down and go back to the way it should be on a TV production, not to mention i really want to take my computer to the newsroom to edit video. my PC is sooo much faster than the mac tower computer they have with like a 2GHz Xeon and 6GB ram with a HD5770 running final cut pro... i told them about how much faster premiere is and GPU acceleration and all that and how my $1000 computer can export H.264 in a fraction of the time it took this computer 8 minutes to export a 57 second long video
unless i am mistaken a quad core Xeon should be faster than my 3770K right? this mac is from 2010.
