21 Sep Charleston Crew and Weather Channel tackle Hurricane Earl
Go To Team’s Charleston based Baker crew headed north to Kill Devil Hills with the Weather Channels Jeff Murrow in search of Hurricane Earl. The 70 MPH gusts and storm surge were no match for the Go To Team hurricane survival kit. This kit, standard for GTT Crews, consists of the Sony D600 16×9 switchable Betacam, a slew of waterproof Bron Kobold HMI’s, several hundred feet of power cable, top notch lectrosonics wireless audio gear, gallons of emergency gas, a pop up tent to provide shade during the pre and post hurricane coverage,and an inverter modified vehicle to power more than enough lighting to run live shots until the cows came home. After all was said and done Earl proved to have more bark than bite, and despite some long hours for everyone, the storm came and went with very little inconvenience for the talent, the crew, or the town.
