Yesterday was my first day at KHBS/KHOG TV and I will say it went really well. Everyone is really friendly and I felt right at home within like 5 minutes. I started out basically watching and being told how things will go but at the 6 o'clock news I got to operate my first camera and I actually didn't screw it up. By the 10 I was printing scripts and running the camera again. I was very impressed with myself but I know I have a long way to go.

Live TV production seems to be a lot of wait, hurry up, wait, hurry up. We wait for scripts and then have less than 5 minutes to get them there before we go live. Then we do a broadcast and repeat. The 2 hour lunch break is nice but we repeat the process again and then go. I think I'm really going to like this and like the different things I'm going to learn here.
So I meet a guy who went to Full Sail for Film which is exactly what I was going to do until the economy bottomed out. It's really cool because now I have someone to talk to about school and different film ideas I have. I might even see if he'll check out one of my screenplays for me. This could be a very good asset for me in the future because I want to start producing my own short movies this summer and he knows a lot about the production side that I'm still learning.
Overall yesterday was a good day. Today is going to be crazy with babysitting my two favorite kids this afternoon and working tonight. I love being able to say that I'm working again. Such a nice feeling of accomplishment.
