There’s a lot of fun that comes along with working behind the scenes in tv production. As a joke this sign was made by a crew member. “This is NOT a Garage Sale”. I totally see the humor in this sign, possibly because I’m part of the TV production crew that constantly sees people slamming on their brakes coupled with the blank stare trying to figure out what is going on. Some onlookers are a little more brazen and have no problem asking some nosy questions. We don’t really have to answer but usually will if people are polite. This sign was made out of frustration on this particular reality TV set because people actually thought it was a garage sale and were walking onto the property. Nothing to see here people, just an interior design reality tv show production. When we set up to shoot a reality tv show production in someone’s home, there can be multiple production trucks, and a small fleet of crew vehicles that might cause people to stare. Here’s a few of the behind the scenes shots from one of the shows I worked on a few years ago.
On the left is a lighting set up in a living room. The picture on the right is a picture I took of our sound guys taking a break in-between takes. They just happened to be relaxing in the perfect photo opp scenario. As they say there’s a whole lot of “hurry up and wait” in our industry. This would be a prime example of the waiting…..
This was a fun location shoot in an Atlanta warehouse. It wasn’t so fun that we shot this in July and there was no air conditioning. A lot of big features films have been shot at this location. Even this was from a few years ago, I clearly recall a bunch of personal portable fans, sunscreen and bug spray utilized in my makeup set bag this day.
And here’s the crew wrap photo from our final first season episode.Please Follow @ by
