Kevin and Mija dropped in on How2 studio filming the other day – I’m kinda busy and haven’t had much chance to eat/sleep/buy milk/blog/etc, so I’m a bit behind here. They sat around for a few hours. Maybe it was raining outside or they were bored, or something, I’m not sure. Anyway, they seemed to enjoy themselves, and professed to find the headlong careering plunge that is studio recording ‘fascinating.’
At some point Kevin asked what, exactly, I do. I had to think about that, since it’s rather hard to describe if the questioner doesn’t know how television production works. In the end, as I looked around at the scurrying figures, flurries of activity, and people loafing between being called to do something somewhere else, I realised that an adequate, if conceited, answer was, “These people are all working for me.”
At least one of us – and I couldn’t say who – said quietly ‘Woah!’
Tomorrow, of course, all but about five of them are working for somebody else. But that’s not the point.
