‘Twas the night before 5+5…
As with any show, there are a bunch of makers working in the background to make it all possible. I call these guys my 5+5 Roadie Posse, and they take the show up to a ho nutha level. I’ll call them out here so you can thank them in person at the lab.
* Ben Brown – rockin the web streaming setup, the food prep, and 14 other things I’m forgetting
* Alex Williams, James Bastow, Karl Williams – cleaning and shuffling furniture
* Rob Adlers – total rework of the sound system including remounting the mixer and amp on sliding drawers, running additional speakers out to the lounge, and loaning his video projector for lounge simulcast
* Ed Blanchard – macgyvered up an awesome mount for simulcast camera and worked with Ben on the projector mount. Oh, and he’ll also replace a light bulb if you ask nicely.
Thanks also to Darcy Casselman and Cedric Puddy for more chairs!
Big thanks, guys. One cool outcome of 5+5 so far is that each time we increase our capabilities at the lab. Last time was the main digital projector and a sound system. This time we’re adding lounge simulcast, serious audio setup, and stream video.
More after the break…
Rob’s remounted sound rig.
That’s way sharp under the bar now.
Ed macgyvered up this camera mount which is just perfect. Simulcast!
Ben and Ed put up this additional projector mount in the lounge.
Alex is posting the speaker list.
Now, just a few last-minute items to do…
