Welcome to the PIT List!

I'm a network field producer who also worked in local tv as a line producer and field producer. Over the years, I have had the great fortune to work with super people. Now I'd like to pass along what I know and rant a tad.

Quick I-News Tip: Control T

I have just learned what "Control T" does and it is fabulous.

Control T puts the current time in your script, like so- 09:18:03. There's your incue. Presser guy says something else, blah, blah blah. Control T again and boom- 09:18:10- you have an out.

Fantastic! The next time you have to log a long, boring press conference as it happens, just have whoever is rolling on it set the timecode to the current time.
