In my previous blog post about the semiotics in the news, I talked about how the news anchors, their colleagues, and the directors/producers/cameramen, etc. all have some form of communication to make sure everything is smoothly executed and also told whenever something maybe going too far or lacking in emphasis or presentation. Well, in my experience in the Communications 360 Studio Production course, I have noticed how those communications have been applied and learned that with time and practice, as with everything in life, things will begin to mesh together and become a more well oiled machine for whenever our serious production begins.

I have not been on too many floor or behind the door jobs except recording, which doesn’t involve much, so I just pay attention to everyone else and make mental notes about how things are running or how there maybe a problem and how production comes to a halt while the situation is being taken care of. Recently, that happened when testing out the changes to the studio that had been made. That turned out to be an adventure and wasted almost all of class because of wires being finicky and the connection needing to revert back to Analog instead of Digital. Like I mentioned, it took up most of class, but allowed everyone to become more comfortable with their equipment and allowed the audio crew to do more mic checks on the people in front of the camera, revealing there was nothing coming out of the mic of one of the guests, which was a simple fix of adjusting the placement of the microphone.

   So, while not being too much of an experienced person in working in the studio, I have noticed a lot of good, open communication between those involved and hopefully get the chance to be able to get more opportunities to do more jobs on the set.
