Well, I can't post much about the upcoming program we've been working on. I wish I could show you the awesome stage in the Conference Center. But I can show a little bit of what I've been up to in preparing my part.
First of all we have been collecting tapes from around the world, of youth bearing testimony. Where needed, we've also done some filming here locally to supplement the submissions.
We filmed on BYU campus in order to have testimonies from Young Adults as well. This is Cody (one of our Intellectual Property Assistants) and Rachel (Production Assistant) displaying the legal signs for the students who would walk by.
Then began the editing! Travis Eberhard is my editor for this show. He does an awesome job and works very fast.
Then, there has been the filming for the "behind the scenes" video that will also be played at the event. We have been taping choir rehearsals, orchestra rehearsals, auditions, youth discussion groups, host rehearsals, etc...
Then there has been the logistics like keeping tapes labeled, finding b-roll video, having paperwork signed for video participants, gathering usable images, etc. This is Rachel and I figuring out the tape situation.
It's been fun to be able to meet people from around the world. We interviewed a youth from Hong Kong named Joseph.
More editing with Travis....
Then began the rehearsals...
As a temporary set-up, we practice with the video through a rear projector.
At the tech rehearsal, Travis and I ran the video from back stage.
This is where I sit during the show, it is where we control everything.
BLOG ENTRY UPDATE: Show time!!!
This is the project why I need to catch up on sleep.
Stay tuned for more exciting updates on this project! We still have the DVD and website. And you can find out more about it on the homepage of LDS.org and on the Church News webpage. :)
