Subject:   [GlobalRevolutionMedia] crew call google group

hey folks,

we're still attempting to have a separate google group for crew calls only...this will be used for video production/post and live streaming only-- and be associated with the implementation of Abe's wheel.  If you don't know what i'm talking about, see below.

If you're a producer, editor, video shooter, sound person or live streamer and want to work with abe's wheel, pls sign up here to receive notices re: that and associated shoots.

I know it's not enticing to join yet another group but this one will be dedicated to crew calls only, no discussion so a quick and direct link to upcoming events that need coverage...without being buried in other discussion.

(it is a wheel because of the rotation of responsibility)

This model is solely for daily content coordination and having people on the ground, not for special interest pieces or other projects (Fix will cover that in his proposal).

Each MONTH, one person will be responsible to (4 weeks, not one month, next one starts Nov.27):

1. FInd 4 people to be responsible each for one week of your month. 4 weeks = 4 people.

2. Assist those 7 people whenever they come to you with a question or in need of help.

3. Find the person who will take over your position the following month.

Each WEEK, one person will be responsible to (Starts on Sunday):

1. Find AT LEAST (but not limited to) 7 people to be responsible each for one day of the week. 7 days = 7 people.

2. Assist those 7 people whenever they come to you with a question or in need of help.

Each DAY, one person will be responsible to:

1. FInd 1-2 other people to help coordinate for the day. (Best to have someone in morning and someone in afternoon/evening).

2. Find shooters to be present on the day.

3. Make sure important events are covered.

4. Do their best to help build interesting content to go up on - Daily recaps are good, but each one should be unique and interesting.

5. Either attend the morning 9AM OWS check in meeting or have someone else attend and then convey such information at the 11AM production meeting.

6. Facilitate 11AM production meeting and engage new people.

7. Coordinate dumping footage onto drives.

8. Be in the media space, help answer questions from the public and manage the sign up sheet.

Things keep changing on a day to day basis, but with the wheel, there is a system in place to get your back, so people do not become overworked and burned out. The key is to keep the rotation going.

It is a good idea to have new people start off as a daily coordinator and then work their way up to weekly/monthly coordinator. This because you need to have some understanding of how things flow in the park and with the media team in order to assume wider levels of responsibility.
