With two days until the launch of “Our Take” on Arise TV, I’m spending my weekend tying up a few loose ends which includes reviewing the show rundown and research, meeting with host Christina Brown and hitting Ikea just one more time.  LOL!

We had an extra week to fine tune the show before we go on the air and last night was our rehearsal in the studio.

Show Director Jack Niesi worked with the crew to block the set in the right space to get the proper lighting and camera angles. When you’re watching television it’s hard to tell just how small a studio space actually is, so you would be surprised at the actual size of many studios.  It takes careful maneuvering by the director to get just the right shots.

Our rehearsal went smoothly, the IKEA chairs look great, the rug and coffee table which took days to find fit in place perfectly and host Christina Brown was ready to roll. I caught her feeling right at home chatting with Beatrix Parash, show Broadcast Line Producer.  We worked late into the night and it was the perfect way to end the week before our Monday debut.

There’s no doubt that last week flew by and we were busy. We want to keep you in the loop behind-the-scenes so here are a few photos that highlight our hectic five days of planning, meeting and gearing up for the launch and weeks ahead.

Yes, we are keeping it social too.
