Nate Oakley Internship: Week 2

Intern report: Week number, hours worked, brief description of work.

Week 2 (32 hours): This week was tech week and opening  weekend for the show we are working on.

2/14-2/17 Tech Week: During tech week we had to get the mics up and running for the actors, do some mixing/processing on each actor’s mic to get it to sound the best it can within this space. We also had to start practicing hitting the cues that would turn on and off the actors’ mics in their respective scenes. Once we got the overall mix dialed in, the main focus during each run was to make sure the cues were being hit at the right times and that we raised and lowered actors’ mic volumes when needed.

2/18-2/20 Show Weekend #1: During the show weekend our job consists of making sure the actors mics are on and working, hitting cues at the right times during the run of the show and making sure volumes are raised or lowered as needed for each actor in each scene.
