“Take Doppler to piddle, but stop in the garage before you come upstairs.” Helaine wanted me to see what she’d accomplished while I was gone.
Holy crap. It’s a studio!
It took lots of work on her part preparing and painting the wall. The electrician removed an outlet right in the middle. Helaine patched and sanded before applying two coats of Behr Sparkling Apple.
It looks amazing. She’s amazing.
Two backlights are overhead. The key lights are on stands. They’ll be held in place with sandbags. That’s how it’s done in real studios.
There are mounts and power for monitors and a clock hung from a beam.
Cox came and installed service. I’m told I need 6-8 mbps for high quality, low latency, HD video. I’ve got triple that.
Most of the equipment is still enroute. I’d like to set it up next weekend, if possible. I’m itching to get started.
Little things keep popping up. We’re starting from scratch. I ordered a charger, 8 AA NiMh batteries, a few 25 foot HDMI cables and light meter, tonight.
In a few weeks my garage will be a chroma key driven sound stage. It’s for work. It’s a toy. This is a very cool project.
