peach reminded me that I sent her this way back when
And I asked: "Is this too stupid to post?" and she never answered me so I just sort of forgot about it
Since were speculating fwiw I ran across this blog some time ago~Its a conversation with Dean Gaveau on August 27, 2007 :
Directly across from us sat Dean Gaveanu and his wife/partner Julie. .
Dave is a Sound Engineer. He's contracted by Studio's and networks for series work.
He's worked a few reality shows which may not be recognized by most people.
Show's like: COPS and The Amazing Race, among others. 'WTF did you just say?' nearly came out of my mouth when Amanda (FAV) asked him what he did for a living. I was immediately cued in to this conversation. Then came the casual drop by Julie that he's be nominated for an Emmy for The Amazing Race - Sound Editing. And, oh by the way, he was nominated again for this year. (My jaw hit the table.) The conversation obviously turned on a dime and surrounded his experiences and travails. Things like, where have you been in this world?...too many to list ('I have 4 passports filled'), what's your favorite country..' Ethiopia. Its the greenest place on earth rivaling Ireland.' Hardest work...'split -
for security reasons..COPS, for just flat out hard work, The Amazing Race.' What's travel like? 'Well, we usually get a couple days notice where we're going next, but most of the time its last minute where I have a chance to call Julie at home and say I'm heading here next, or arrived there (while walking through the airport waiting for bags." What surprised you most about doing this job? "The physicality. When I was doing COPS it was real. What you saw on TV is what really happened (save for editing,) but even after editing it came across the way it was presented to us...REAL. The police really were in some very difficult positions at times, and for us the difficulty was always remaining situationally aware..of our surroundings, where the bad guys were, what shot limitations we had, where the best and secure shot was..that type of thing. Apart from the security issues, like with the Amazing Race, its physical. Its always c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, lets go. Its, 'were moving here with this team' and then tracking them and their exploits full tilt non-stop." "Some of the locations around the world are very challenging. Heat, access to food and water, viable medical needs, staying ahead of and with the contestants. Not getting involved in situations where the crew becomes part of the story." "Those are the hard things. When we finally get off the shoot and arrive back home, my internal clock is all whacky from being in..China or Madagascar. Then I just come home, take a really long shower, have some great pizza, and sleep for a week..literally." Blog
