Field trip to a live set

A few weeks before the end of the semester, I was tasked to do a series of shooting boards for an Ally Bank series of commercials by Larry August of Avalon Films. It just so happened that on that multi-day shoot, I was allowed to bring my Intro to Storyboard class to attend the live shooting of the spot. The students got to see how commercials were shot on a live sound stage. The class got to see how a director, camera people, make-up artists, audio techs, actors, and a massive group of talented and skilled people it takes to get a commercial shot.
