Lower the Boom

For the second straight Veterans Day, I'll be working all day instead of enjoying the federal holiday like most of you... and that's okay. Last year, I was Camera Operator, Armorer, and Grip for the school's production of two student movies. This year, I'm doing Utility Audio and Armorer for a single film noir shot over the next 4 days.

There's only three jobs in the Audio Department: Head Mixer, Head Boom Operator, and UA. Since the Director had asked me to do the Armorer thing again, I didn't bother pursuing the leadership positions... I'll still put in more than the 4 hours required of a UA drone, including replacing the Head Mixer on the recorder and Boom-Boom on the fishing pole. I'm scheduled for two full days of duty, then I get to help a friend shoot a Western on Saturday/Sunday! It's a good thing I don't have much homework this weekend!
