Heads In Asses

For the past week, we at work have had our heads up our collective asses. The powers that be decided to change the format of the 5pm news. Nothing too big but definitely different. Our first meeting on the new changes, graphics, camera shots was Monday at 3:45pm, for a show that goes on at 5pm. Yes ladies and gentlemen, they gave us a total of 1 hour and 15 minutes to build effects, block shots and practice this new format. So we have been doing it on the fly for the past 3 days and it has looked like shit. No one feels comfortable and as this current management team has shown us, they want changes already. Forget doing a test run and getting some examples on tape for the higher ups to see, forget testing shots and music and new graphic effects to find out what works and what does not. Just throw it on the air, make on air adjustments when it looks like shit and then start the blame game on everyone but the goddamn creators of this fucking mess.

Sorry, 2 days till vacation. My first full week since I moved here 3 years ago......I need it!!!!!

Just so you know, you aren't the only one who ends up trying to satisfy management on their whim. Enjoy your vacation!!
