TEDx Conference Colorado Springs

Moderator opening TED Conference
Access Media Group

This was a 9-hour TED conference I was a Production Assistant on in September 2019. I was interning with a production company called Access Media Group. We set-up, filmed, edited and tore down, all in two days, at the Ent Center For The Arts in Colorado Springs, Colorado. I was in charge of hauling equipment back and forth from the trucks into the venue, and right before filming, my boss Chris put me behind Camera 1, and I was then supposed to film each speaker from the shoulders up.

This was my first time behind any camera. What were all these buttons and dials? I didn't know. The event was also being live-streamed to YouTube the same day of filming, so every shot mattered. I was scared at first, but gradually, listening to the director coach me in the sound booth, I fell into a rhythm of following each speaker on and off stage.

Doing this event, I learned how to work hard, how to trust co-workers and superiors, and not to let what I didn't know stunt my best efforts. I'm very grateful for all of the people that gave me a chance, and the experience I gained. The video can be found on my YouTube channel, under the name Noah Blackwood.
