Is there anything you guys have heard about and want me to try and run down and photograph?????
Then it's hardcore SHOT...we'll be filming for DRTV and OutdoorChannel.com all day Tuesday. Marshal and I plan to post a daily wrap-up to DRTV every day. I also plan to do the weekly podcast from the Show floor, but we're having to wing that puppy on the fly.
Thursday night are the Outdoor Channel's Golden Moose Awards, which will be streamed live to the Internet. Strangely enough, I'm nominated in a bunch of categories:
- Midway USA's GUN STORIES for Best Overall Series
- Midway USA's GUN STORIES for Best Show Open
- Midway USA's GUN STORIES for Best Shooting Sports
- SHOOTING GALLERY for Best Shooting Sports
- Midway USA's GUN STORIES for Best Educational/Instructional
- Michael Bane's Video Podcast for Best Online Original Series
- Midway USA's GUN STORIES as Fan Favorite New Series
I was hoping that I'd get nominated in the Best Turkey category until they told me it was for turkey hunting...who knew? Joe Mantegna and Dan Ramm are coming in for the award ceremonies, which will be a lot of fun. I have now repeatedly promised not to create any international incidents...
Seriously, many many thinks to the many, many people who make all these shows possible...Producers Tim Cremin, Dan Ramm and Joe Mantegna, directors of photography Brandon Green and Rob Stookey for GUN STORIES; Producers John Carter and Mike Long, directors of photography Gene Moffett and Brook Aitken, sound technician Lincoln Terhart and all the other crew for SHOOTING GALLERY (Dan and Joe join us as producers for SG in 2012, BTW...they're handling our "Hollywood office"); Producers Marshal Halloway and Denise Jackson for the video podcast. They are dream teams, and quite frankly the best in the business.
I'm very very lucky...
