Storm Season in Full Swing

We haven't had opening night yet (May 16th!) but work for Storm season 2010 is definitely in full swing.  I've been doing pretty much a shoot per day for the past week, including Media Day on Monday.  Media Day is the day when we get all the players in one by one to shoot everything we're going to need from them for the ENTIRE SEASON's worth of videos, so it's a pretty chaotic day. Here's a pic of me with my EX-1 on a rented jib arm from the Storm's Photo Gallery.  I planned to use my ipad as a teleprompter (using the ProPrompter app) but we couldn't get it all organized and loaded in time so we had to stick with old school cue cards. There's also a behind the scenes video.

I produced a TV Spot which played during the Women's Final Four tournament, and then a whole new one which debuted at the Mariners game on Tuesday, and should start showing up on TV next week.  These are my first TV Spots, and man - those 30 seconds fills up quick, I used every single one of 'em!  I'll embed it here once it's up.

I also had a fun shoot on Tuesday, following Swin Cash behind the scenes when she went to throw out the first pitch at the Mariners game.  Some pics below of me and my giant camera backpack (Kata HB207), which now that I have I don't know how I ever lived without, it makes it so easy to take my camera with me anywhere.

Also had a good but soggy shoot in Issaquah when The Storm staff went out and helped build a house for Habitat For Humanity.  It was a struggle keeping the camera & lens dry, but I don't think I'd use it enough to invest in some kind of camera cover...
