12PM – Plug in the camera battery charger, and wait. Done!
1PM – Reduce number of studio lights to 2 and take a bulb from the third light to put into the more-needed second light. Done!
2:30PM – Plug in MEVO with electrical-tape-repaired wire charger. Done!
The next step was to connect my MEVO to my iPAD – that’s how you run the MEVO. Problem was, I hadn’t used the iPAD in ages and, you guessed it, it needed charging. At least that charger was easy to find….mostly.
3PM – Plug in iPAD and wait for it to charge. Done!
The next step was to print out my script. As I did that, I remembered that my printer was on its last legs: I could barely read the printouts. So, I went online to take advantage of “that awesome printer sale”. The problem is: each of the printers I was thinking of getting was ALL. SOLD. OUT! How is that even possible?!
4PM - Order next-best alternate printer and use the PDF on my computer instead of a printed version for the recording. Done!
- The MEVO firmware needed updating.
- MEVO released a new app that I needed to download.
- The MEVO firmware needing updating again.
- MEVO and iPAD couldn’t talk to each other because of settings on my iPAD. (What are those settings and how do I change them?! “Siri…!!!”)
- Camera positions needed to be adjusted
- Lights needed to be adjusted.
- MEVO and iPAD, finally connected, had regular arguments and stopped talking to each other.
- Camera, while waiting for me to start (which took forever because of said arguments between MEVO and iPAD) decided it was tired of waiting and shut down….over and over again!
- Words on the PDF disappeared from sight while I was recording.
- After first recording was finished, I went to my camera to the lovely message that the SD card was full.
- After second recording was almost finished, I got a notification pop up on my iPAD that the MEVO SD card was full.
- Friend still waiting for me to finish.
12AM - I stayed up until 3AM that night editing footage that my son could use.
- Don’t ask why.
- It happened.
- Make the best of it and move on.
