Being Well Rounded

NPACE provides a lot of equipment and time for one to perfect their craft. I’ve been working on CPR so long, that I’ve snuck off and got myself interested in some other things…camera production.


Eric Barnhardt is one of the staff members in NPACE, and he is very hands on with the camera equipment, so who better to learn something from than him. He’s constantly showing me the fundamentals of the camera , and the different angles that I can use to take great video. Today we shot a mini commercial for another intern in NPACE. Although it was just practice, the work that went into it was very real.


We started from the bottom from setting up the camera, and diffusers, and then it was time to film! Brandi Phillips was a great test subject! I was able to be her “hype-man” and really get her into the swing of things. The bright lights is one of my favorite parts about everything.



It wouldn’t be right if I did not give it a try myself. You never really know what you’re capable of until you’re forced to give it a try. I must be more than radio. I have to be well-rounded.



Hands On Behind the Scenes – NPACE – Leonard Hood

This was a fun week interning because it was another very hands on week. Not only did I produce more audio for the shows that people in NPACE are working on, I helped record a theme song for “Tv Turnt Up”. The producers of the show had a student with lyrical talent,  write a short 50 second introduction to one of the instrumentals I produced, and I then recorded him and edited all of the sounds. It was fun because it reminded me of some of the things I enjoyed doing when I was growing up.  Fast-forward to today,  I was a camera man for one of the shows being produced called “iNto Columbus”. I was using a GH3 camera with extra features hooked up to it like a wireless microphone and a larger screen on top. It was fun to get that experience and I felt like I was a part of something professional. I even got a chance to record Miss Columbus, Hayley Henderson.

Lights ! Camera ! Action !

A camera person has been one of my job descriptions since last December for the Dee Show. Working behind the camera during the live Dee Armstrong show can be a very scary experience, but it is also very rewarding!  There are times when I glance over at the shots I am taking and realize that I have moved the camera during live T.V. ! It also is very fun when we get to have cooking segments and get to see all the yummy food up close and personal.

I have to remember to white balance, check the focus, and frame the shots correctly. I was taught all of this within the first week of working inside the station. Take a look at some of the pictures of me at the Dee Show.

Cool right!

One of the most important things to do is to make sure that the camera person keeps track of the time, and make sure that the talent (Dee) gets to her position in time.
