Did my yeary trip to Aspen to get paid to laugh, at least some of the time.

AV GUY SHOOT
So Barry starts writing humor for Live Sound Magazine. This is an audio trade magazine for which I have a subscription. At one point he asked me for some help with some audio lingo for an article he was writing about an audiovisual technician breaking into stripping. Kind of an inside joke about how un-sexy our industry is. So I'm off doing a gig in the bay area and we are having breakfast with another sound company. I crack a joke about much women love stage blacks and a guy from the other sound company asked, "Did you read that AV stripper thing in Live Sound?"
Meanwhile Barry, Tom and I were trying to come up with a subject for a new comedy short to shoot. Seemed suddenly obvious.
Coming in Febuary:
Shooting the opening scene.
Corby, with his homemade dolly. You too with just a sheet of plywood, table leaf, skate board, bungie cords, broom handle and a cat scratching post, can get three feet of a smooth dolly shot.
Corby & Tom
The Santa Cruz White Album Ensemble
In the begining of 2006 I mixed a series of live shows with the group. The highlight being at the Santa Cruz civic with the Santa Cruz Symphony.
Oh yes, I usually don't get exited about meeting celebrities, but ... ok, my buddy Myles used to get taken care of by David Gilmour’s nanny along with his kids. It's a long story, but somehow there I was shaking the mans hand backstage after seeing him live with a comp ticket. It's worth mentioning that Pink Floyds The Wall was the first rock concert I ever saw. I've known who David was since I was 12 years old and is royalty in my little world.
Anyway I met David Gilmour...
High end audiovisual for medical conferences. The picts pretty much say it all.
