Unique Needs of 24x7 Running Storage & MAM for Reality TV
Today’s reality TV productions are ambitious in their size and tight broadcast schedules, requiring a multitude of impressive engineering feats. When not tracking every move of a housewife, psychic medium or celebrity, other shows such as Hell’s Kitchen, America’s Got Talent or The Voice closely follow the progress of contestants and are broken up into segments: the documentary portions that tell the back stories of contestants, the behind-the- scenes shots that show the contestants preparing for the competition, and then the (sometimes live, sometimes not) actual competition portion itself.

How to Direct Non-Professional Actors
We all want to work on films and commercial productions where we have the budget and the creative that allows for casting calls, talent agents and professional actors to deliver inspired performances.

And if anything, directing non-professionals is great practice in a more forgiving environment for your directing skills.

The Reality Of Being An Actor Working From Home

After all, I already had my website and portfolio built at voicebymaria.com, I had a ProductionHub profile, I had already built a broadcast-quality studio in my home office (it was quite a challenge for my husband to get my StudioBricks OnePlus booth into my office after the delivery people dropped it off in our driveway!). And I was familiar with Zoom years before everybody started using Parks & Rec sets as silly backgrounds to amuse their co-workers. I’ve been recording, editing, conference-calling and participating in live-directed sessions from my professional home studio for eight years now, voicing commercials for national brands such as Pillsbury, Panera, Hoover and Dannon. But things HAVE changed - in ways I wasn’t expecting.
