Saturday 18th October

After the DVD was shot the last 10 days or so have been unbelievably busy. Deadlines for Christmas production are so tight that myself and the team have been working all hours to get it ready. When you still strive for perfection that makes things harder, but i'm not prepared to put out anything less than what i deem to be, maybe not perfect, but the best I/we could have done.

Today is the last day of tour and on the way I plan an idea to take over the boys individual screens during the show, and edit in the crew talking about them. As soon as we arrive in Bournemouth I firstly take screen edits for the Teen Awards tomorrow to our LCD Operator Connor, and then, when they are tested, I track down a room to film the crew without the band knowing. Crew filmed I head to my edit suite, the promoter heard about me living so close to Harry potter Studios in Watford obviously...

Once the edit is done I run the files to Connor and he loads them into Catalyst for a quick check to make sure they are all ok. We can't test on the main screen as the doors have opened, so tonights fans are already in the venue. All we can do is check the visual on the monitor backstage and see if any audio levels are being read, we can't even listen! I hope that all is ok and then head to get my camera setup at Front of House to film the whole show while I run the stage and pit areas to photograph, here's a few photo's from the night...

The tour was amazing, i'm sad that it's ended, but now looking forward to next years Arena tour, and the planning for that has already begun! Here's a few photo's, just from my phone, from the tour...
