Daytime Columbus!

While it is a little behind schedule, I worked as a Production Assistant Intern for Daytime Columbus, a NBC4i Columbus produced talk show.

With the show, the Host and Executive Producer, Gail Hogan, talked with business owners and organizations from all across Columbus (and Ohio) that have something to offer the community.  Topics range from landscaping ideas, home organization, and pet adoptions to upcoming theatrical events and healthy living tips.

Daytime Columbus is an 'Advo-tainment' Talk Show.  It is advertising because everyone on the show has paid to be there.  It is also entertaining because Gail is AWESOME at making everything sound fun!

Here is a peek into a typical segment.  It is a spot produced for Luxury Bath Systems, a bathroom renovations company that specializes in fast and easy bathroom solutions for both luxurious and necessary safety reasons.

I Know What I Did Last Summer!

"Punch Drunk Robot" is a special project that I worked on in August 2011 as a submission for the 48 Hour Film Project Cincinnati Festival.  As part of the festival, "Punch Drunk Robot" made it to the 'Best of Cincinnati' screening, which basically means it was considered one of the top ten submissions for the Cincinnati this year.  We were also awarded Best Song!  The three elements we needed to include were
          1. Character: Arthur or Arlene Zinnia, Acupuncturist
          2. Prop: a tray
          3. Line of Dialogue: "It's the same thing all over again"

As a crew member, I assisted with the costuming as well as being the Lead Gaffer (I was in charge the lighting crew).  Obviously, with a deadline of 48 hours, there was limited time for set-up, but considering the time constraints I think I did a pretty good job.
