MDA shoot

I spent an afternoon at the MDA (Muscular Dystrophy Association) headquarters in the Tucson foothills last week for a video shoot.  The shoot was for the upcoming MDA telethon.

This was the first time I had visited the MDA headquarters.  Its a beautiful facility.

I helped with the shoot, which was for check presentations, and some testimonials by kids.

I'm not an on-camera talent anymore.  When I worked in radio, I was a local host of the telethon four times in six years.  Now that I've moved into the producing side of television, I still get to pitch in for a worthy cause... just in a different way.

We have another shoot tomorrow (8/18) at the KGUN studios for pieces of the local portion of the telethon.  MDA always arranges for some food.  That will make working on a Saturday a bit nicer.
