Shooting on the Today’s Homeowner Set
By: Jodi Marks
Much fun was had recently as I headed down to Mobile, Alabama, to shoot with Danny and the gang. This was our first shoot in the New Year and I was thrilled to be with everyone again!
Our first stop was shooting in The Home Depot. Allen, our producer and co-host, had everything ready to go while Scott, our fearless director kept us all on pace to bang out four BNP (Best New Products) segments before lunch, and then the remaining four after lunch. It was a jam-packed day filled with some truly great products we are highlighting this season on the show.
Day two proved to be just as rigorous with shooting in the morning on location inside a private home highlighting a “trash to treasure” idea for old shutters. Then it was off to the studio where Allen had me set up to build the prefect little garden or utility room bench made from simple dimensional lumber. It was a snap and I can’t wait for it to air so you can see just how easy this woodworking project is to make.
The days flew by too quickly, and I was sad to leave my Alabama buddies. Heading back to a very cold Atlanta, I was struck by the wonderful feeling I get when I head to Mobile. While the shoots are fast-paced and a whirlwind while we’re working, there’s always that warm feeling a being at home surrounded by good people who love what they are doing just as much as I do . . . we are blessed!
