Currently at work at 12:30am
Yes you read correctly, I am currently at work and I'll still be here for another 6 1/2 hours. What is it that I do...well i'm a Presentation Operator at Foxtel. What is it that i do as a Presentation Operator? Well I monitor 9 channels and make sure the audio/visual run smoothly without any problems and make sure the paid commercials run on time. The channels I monitor are Showtime HD, Showcase HD, Hallmark, NITV, ESPN HD, E! Ent, BBC News, Fox News and Main Event.
I've been interested in Television ever since my high school offered it as a subject, that's when I gave up on anything else I was doing (besides music) and focused on getting a job as quickly as possible in the industry.
I've done a lot of work experience which includeds: 3 months at ABC working on Double the Fist (Production and Post-Production), MTV for 4 months helping out with the MTV News segments being the auto-cue operator and was even asked to be a Production Assistant for their live coverage of the Good Vibrations 2008 festival.
My main goal is to become a camera operator (mainly for music videos and gigs) and also an editor. Recently me and my mate started a small business (which we're still working out the kinks) planning on filming gigs sydney and music videos as well as promo photography for a very decent price so they can share it on myspace/facebook/youtube...our first band we filimed were COG.
If you have anything you'd like to ask me about what I do, please send questions over.
Have a good night and a good sleep, I know I wont.
