This year I have setup a good number of video shoots to help expand my video knowledge and portfolio. Of course nobody schedule is going to relate to yours but sometimes I feel like they don’t understand my job. Besides recording the shoot, I have to make sure all the equipment is present, proper lighting and tape formats. All the artist or actor has to do is show up ready to do what they do. When done with the shoot, the job is never done. Post production is the most important part of the process. These are the long hours at the computer editing the video. Sometimes during post production, you realize you missed something during the shoot, and you can either call another shoot to get what you want, or try and work around it the best to your abilities. From the time of the first shoot to the final edit, this process can take anywhere from a few weeks to several months. This is why I have to space out all my shoots the way I do. Not because I don’t want to do a shoot. I give all my clients the same respect and dedicated effort to all their projects. What I honestly need is my own studio to work from.

Last friday was the last day of Terrence J and Rocsi hosting BET’s 106 and Park, an American hip hop and R&B music video show. Terrence J is set to appear as a new co-host on E! News, while Rocsi will moving from New York to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career.
After a huge contest called “106 The Search” which sought out the fourth round of personalities for the television show, the new team was revealed to the world on Monday. It consists of two former BET affiliates, Shorty Da Prince and Paigion, an upcoming singer/dancer, Miss Mykie, and YMCMB rapper, Bow Wow.
Now many wonder why the set up has changed from two to four hosts, and I too am puzzled. I have been a guest on the the show multiple times and seeing that BET films inside CBS studios, it’s hard to imagine even more activity on such a small set. I personally expected Shorty Da Prince and Paigion to host because they previously hosted other BET series. I believe that the contest was just a hype to get more viewers, and I feel sorry for the other contestants that participated. Now as far as Bow Wow goes, he’s not too far of a stretch seeing that he was named “Mr. 106 and Park” back in the early 2000s as a young entertainer. And Miss Mykie was probably thrown in there to keep the balance, two guys two girls.
Overall, I personally lost interest in the show a while ago. The only thing that keeps me intrigued as I flip through the channels are the music videos which I love so much, but have access to without even bothering to turn on the television. Yet, I wish the show much more success and especially am rooting for Paigion because she is one of Detroit’s finest as well as Shorty Da Prince who relocated to Detroit from St. Louis a few years back.
I definitely plan on visiting the show again this year. If you’re interested you can get free tickets here, or just watch from the comfort of your home weekdays at 6pm on BET. For more information on the new hosts, you can follow them on Twitter.
