I’ve been doing some work with Paisley lately to produce remote control particle effects for her show and her concerts. She wanted to be able to produce fog, birds and other special effects and I built a very easy to use control panel for her. To me, the major design characteristic was to make it incredibly simple. Somehow I just can’t imagine singing in front of a large crowd while trying to figure out a complicated HUD or paging through menus. The singer should be focused on singing, not pressin’ buttons!
After we completed the remote control project, Paisley wondered if I wanted to be a guest on her show, Tonight Live with Paisley Beebe! Of course, I accepted immediately. I’ve been to several live tapings of the show and they are always interesting and professionally produced. However, what viewers might not know is that the audience is usually quite lively, and often there are fun chats taking place unbeknownst to Paisley’s guests.
The taping takes place at 6PM SLT Sunday the 27th, at the Northpoint studio, located here. And if you don’t make it to the taping, you can catch the show at http://slcn.tv/tonight-live-paisley-beebe later in the week.
See you there!
