Putting this show together is a bit like being an octupus. There are tons of different segments: interviews, live performances, host interludes, behind-the-scenes pieces -- and we're working on them all simultaneously. So we'll shoot a segment, and then edit one that we shot a week ago, and then put the finishing touches on another, and then capture footage for yet another.

I'm someone who thinks very linearly. I like to take a project from start to finish, and focus solely on that one project. So this drives me crazy. I have to constantly re-focus my energy on a new subject, and just when I'm "in the zone," it's time to move on to another segment. Unfortunately, this is the only way to ensure that we'll have everything finished by the time SXSW rolls around.

Today, I edited footage of the incredible Elvis Perkins, finished the Inara George piece, mixed theme music, and captured footage of our host segments.

Oh also, I got my chest xray. I should get my results tomorrow.

  1. Hope you are feeling better while doing all this work Mike.

  2. Wow Mike! Working on the Samantha Murphy TV show right out of the block after Hannah Montana while you produce your own CD and visit Cedar Sinai for x-rays is like juggling a toaster, watermelon and a bowling ball while sailing on a cruise ship! You rock!

  3. Mike sounds like you are one busy guy. Take it easy if you can and get well so you can complete everything you are working on. Cant wait to see it.
