Tesco & Fridges

23 Mar ’07

So the last few days have been manic and even as I write this i think to myself that I shouldn’t be soingso as I have faaaaar too much to do for the morning.

On Thursday afternoon I left for South Wales. I did the jorney in good time despite forgetting to have cash on me for the Severn Bridge toll. I arrived up there and met my colleague Liz and the camera man at the Tesco Depot at 4:45. Our Tesco contact arrived shortly after and we sat down and discussed what we would shoot the following day. We then went and did a quick recce of the depots to have a better idea as to what we would see and do.

Up at 6:30am and down at The Depot for 6:30. This day was a much much better than Teusday’s. The people here were just far more willing to help and so it made the whole day alot easier. It was a very very very long and full day and when we finished at 7:15pm I was not looking forward to the drive home. However I managed it in better time than i thought and i picked up Ruth and we went straight into Bob’s Oxfam store for his comedy night which was pretty good. We didnt stay too long as at that point tiredness was really kicking me in the teeth so I brought Ruth home and then went home to bed.

Sat was spent digitizing the 8 hours of footage we shot. This was a bit mind numbingly dull but i got it done by around 6:30. I ate and startdd some of the small bits i wanted to do before today. Later on i nipped over to Acton to attempt joining in the Paddy’s day festivities but again had the same culprit kicking my teeth along with the evenings work hanging over me. So I went back home and finished off the main bits i wanted done for today. I got to bed at 5am.

Today so far has been good. I have to have a rough draft of the edit done for the morning. Yup thats alot of pressure but I am on track i think. I just need to keep track of the whole message and make sure the draft is coherent and shows off what the video is suposed to do. The pic above is a wee screen grab which i though was quite cool so there ya go!

That is all!

    Yeah, we make you pay to come into Wales! (But you can leave for free … ;-))

    Whereabouts were you? I'm a South Wales girl originally.
