A Panic Attack Waiting to Happen

The very first time I TD'd by myself (TD: technical director... the person who pushes all the buttons on the switcher) I just about had a panic attack. And that was on a 2 M/E Ross board that was really quite simple.

This is a 3 M/E Grass Valley board that's older than I am! And it doesn't work very well... and you have to use TWO DVE's (they do effects) and a massive router because the board isn't big enough for all the sources that we use.

But... I TD'd an entire show today for the first time. My trainer (Goatee'd TD) was sitting right behind me, but I did it! And I didn't freak out too badly either.

So we're making progress...

And, an added plus... I think my killer headache that I had all day has finally given in to the massive doses of ibuprofen I've been shoving at it.

Can I come play when you get your new board??!! :D Boss Man has been off all week so I've been TD-ing the 5 which has been nice. I'll take any excuse I can get to push buttons. :)
