Want to see a real, professional Director and Technical Director in action, working together, in an incredibly high pressure, high visibility program like the Tony Awards?

Thanks to +Jason Cleanthes for passing along something that really got me smiling from ear to ear. This is how the sausage is made, people. 

Sure, I TD shows here at TWiT, but it's a much different story than what you see in this video. At TWiT, the TD is the live producer, camera operator, sound mixer, stage director (sometimes), and lighting technician, along with switching the live show.

In an environment like the Tony Awards, one person couldn't possibly do all of those things simultaneously. So you have what you see here: A Director (the guy yelling numbers) telling the TD (the guy switching the video) and the camera people (each camera operator has a number) which camera to take and when. You also hear toward the end that he cues the music. This is only a part of his role.

The Director is the conductor of the visual orchestra that is the switched live video program... In this case, the opening sequence to the 2013 Tony Awards which, by all accounts, was an incredibly orchestrated event. If you haven't watched the opening sequence from the show, check it out for sure, but only AFTER watching this video from behind the scenes. Then you'll have a sense of just how complex this has to be.

Watching this video makes me realize just how awesome it would be to sit in that director's chair. It's no easy feat in and of itself, especially on a project as detailed as the Tony Awards. When teaching my class on Live Media Production, students would often ask if a TriCaster is used at the Academy Awards. Pretty safe to say that, no, it's not. But the concept is the same. I'd explain how a live event like the big awards shows on TV are the pinnacle of live production, the scale of which is unprecedented. The total number of cameras, the number of people working their own specialized roles, but together, they are able to pull of something incredibly impressive. And watching this video shows you that scale perfectly.

Maybe someday I'll be yelling those numbers myself... cause watching this video really gets my blood pumping something fierce. Enjoy!!!

Still wondering what Google sent to Glass Explorers?

The answer... may surprise you. (how's that for a patented Nightly News tease?)

My other son putting +Project Glass to use for the first time. Like his 14-year-old brother, I gave him no instructions on what to do. All he knows is what he'd seen in that SNL skit :)

First he takes a picture, which goes so fast that he didn't realize it happened (I could tell, because I was screencasting what he was seeing to my Android phone). That made him say "Capture," and he continued on that way, thinking he could / should be able to just naturally tell the device what he wanted.

For example, later, after asking for directions, he tried to get it to zoom in on the address by saying "Zoom in." He did another search and tried to get Glass to take him to a web site (YouTube, probably to watch some gaming videos), but you can't do that (yet) in Glass.

At the end, without any training, he figures out how to send a message. Since he's was in guest mode, he could only send to me. And he's either trying to butter me up to use Glass more with what he sent, or he's just sweet or likely, both :)

The new Pʜᴏᴛᴏɢʀᴀᴘʜʏ ENGAGERS Cɪʀᴄʟᴇ is out!    [Jun 14, 2013]
Watch for the new Event that complements this photo share!

Quick start instructions:
➀  post a URL link to a G+ photo in the comments below,
➁  check out some photos from others and +1 and comment on them,
➂  publicly share this circle-post, from a new friend's stream (instead of ours)
➃  +1 this post to say "thanks", and add this circle  (replace it every week)

The Circle rules are still the same, but a little easier for those who are not photographers, or for whatever other reason cannot always participate to the full extent.  Now there will be another level where the extra participation is separate from the basic Circle share.

Full story:  Post a link to a photo from your stream during the last week in the comments below.  It can be your photo or someone else's (with name).  Then from the comments here, check out someone's link, and comment on / critique that photo.  Try to pick someone new each week, so you will meet new people and make new friends (more than 1 is ok too).  Re-sharing their circle-share helps them learn about Ripples!

Next Level:  When you comment and leave your photo link, some other circle member will check it out, and then invite you to the Event, and share your photo there.  Once you are inside the Event, you can do the same!  Only guests in the Event can invite & post photos.

Biggest Ripple last week: +Katie Wright with 9!  Nice work to those that helped her: +Matthew Shuey, +Mark HELM, +Sara Schiavi, +Marisa Thomas, +Ree Saunders, +Andy Smith, and +Heiko Köster!

The average share-chain length (ripple) for the whole group was 3.22 - Amazing!!  68% of all the shares were re-shares, 32% were solo.

Top Influencers last week: +Katie Wright, +Sara Schiavi, and +Ree SaundersSpecial thanks to you too!
