These TV shows are non-narrative and narrative. For the majority of these projects, I assisted the professor. I made sure to run errands for him and made sure to attend to and assist all the students that needed it. I made sure the CG person knew how to work the system and that the Media Server was recording all the shows. I was usually on the floor just in case students needed help or had any questions to ask about their show. The professor also made me in charge of class a few times when it was necessary. I would make sure everyone was doing their jobs and made sure scenes were run through and recorded. For the Flashpoint production, for a day I was an assistant to the audio person. This was one of the senior thesis projects. I made sure to listen on the headphones to make sure the levels were not spiking on the mixer. For this project, we filmed all night at CBS Studios Radford lot. Northridge - Northridge, C A I did two projects: Brisé and Roommates. The first project was Roommates and this was shot in May 2014. It is a short film that I remade from the original film Bridesmaids. The second is Brisé and this was shot in December 2014. This was a five minute TV episode. I wrote and directed both. I also coordinated the communication within the group to ensure everyone got along well and that the production was ran smoothly. Northridge - Northridge, C A I was an assistant director for one multi-camera TV narrative called Mailroom. I helped the director with the shot lists for each scene, made sure to attend casting and meetings, wrote down notes for the director, made sure that the camera men/women knew what they were doing for each scene, and made a call-sheet and helped assign different students for different positions needed. Northridge - Northridge, C A List of shows worked on: Beatbox Royale, Know Your Love, Common Knowledge, How-To, Out of His World, Room for Rent. As floor manager, I did both non-narrative and narrative shows. For the non-narrative shows, I made sure to keep in communication with everyone from upstairs: Director, AD, TD, Audio, CG, and Media Server. During these productions, it was my job to make sure everyone was quiet and ready on set, to make sure everything was in check, ask questions when necessary, and to communicate direct orders from the Director. Also, made sure to give my cues: counting down, wrapping it up, which camera to look at, etc. As for the Narrative shows, I made sure to communicate with the CG, Media Server, and Audio upstairs and Director and AD downstairs. I kept in contact with the Media Server to roll and record when the director was ready. Also made sure that the audio coming from the boom was leveled still.

Set DesignerWinnetkaNorthridge - Northridge, C A I was set designer for one multi-camera TV game show. It was called Disney Fanatics. For this show, I designed and built four flats with four plywood and twelve 2x4s. I drew the design on each plywood to create the Disneyland castle icon. That was a challenge for me because I had to take the blue castle and divide it onto the four walls. On top of those flats, I made two arches with 2x4s that held blue shimmery material to make it look like the night sky. In addition, built two side walls made out of PVC pipes and red sheer material that draped over the PVC pipes from which we the images of Mickey and Minnie Mouse's face so they looked like silhouettes. To make those shine through, we put two ARRI lights on the floor to shine up at them. For props, I drew and painted the Disney characters to put around the set.
