Keeping up with Liz during MMVA rehearsals

Posted on June 15th, 2013

MUCH HQ 2013

Hey everyone, it’s April

It has almost arrived! One. More. Sleep. Until the 2013 MMVAs!

Today is a full day of rehearsals here at MUCH HQ. We’ve got VJs going over throws, we’ve got bands rehearsing their sets, we’ve got camera operators running around grabbing footage, cue card holders putting together cue cards, assistants chasing after celebrity guests, floor directors floor directing … you catch my drift. It’s a busy day for everyone.

The way MUCH is able to break it all down, is with a complex schedule of rehearsing each award, performance and interview that will happen TOMORROW (OMG!) night.

Today we are also rehearsing the Red Carpet Special, which takes place about one street over from where the main stage is located. This means I’ve got double duty – keeping up with sound checks on the main MMVA stage and being there for Liz whenever she needs me. How can I be in two places at once, you may ask?

I have my secret weapon that’s gotten me this far in the MMVA game, and it’s got my back once again.
My BlackBerry Z10 has a new feature to BBM, it’s called BBM Video with Screen Share. This allows me to have a real-time conversation and talk face-to-face with the person I’m chatting with. Today I was able to check out some of my fave sound checks, all while keeping tabs on Liz on the red carpet.

What’s even cooler is that you can screen share during your conversation. All the way from her spot on the red carpet, Liz was able to watch along with me for MMVA rehearsals with Down with Webster, Classified and Phillip Phillips! Isn’t technology these days the greatest?

Check out our day below, and watch how easy it is to use BBM Video with Screen Share on the go.

Watch the 2013 MMVAs on Sunday, June 16 at 9E/6P on Much in Canada and Fuse in the U.S. Don’t miss The MMVAs RED CARPET SPECIAL, which airs just before the big show at 8E/5P
