Mark Burnett Productions: a day in the life

I took a few photos today of the building and courtyard at Mark Burnett Productions. Here is my visual story: "A Day in the Life at MBP"

The Drive into Work

I drive up to the building around 9:15 a.m. To the left of the building is a parking deck we open with a small white card. Once in there, reserved spots on the top level are for executives and other office staff. The lower level is for the freelancers, like me! All of the parking is directly under the building, so we either take an elevator or the stairs up to our offices. We park in such a way that we may block someone in. If this is the case, then we put our keys on the windshield, and the parking attendant, Victor, will move our car if need be. At the end of the day he moves everyone's cars so no one is blocked in and walks upstairs to give us our keys. He actually remembers my car and my keys. He's a cool dude!

I plan on taking a picture of Mark Burnett's reserved spot later today. I will post once I get that!

The Front Gate

This is the front gate to the building. Usually it is locked and we have to either buzz ourselves in or use our little white card. For the longest time, I didn't realize that little white card would let us into this door as well. I was thrilled to figure that out!

The Sign = COOL

The sign that greets you when you walk up to the front door!

The Courtyard

Once in the gate, the courtyard is the place to be! Noelle, the Bully Beat Down casting producer, is in the tan sweatshirt. She's giving me the "Ashley's crazy look." Good times. The gates in the middle are actually where the stairs are to go to the parking deck. That little white sign says, "Bully Beat Down - please sit at the tables behind." I made that sign because bullies would come in for casting and wander the building until someone told them to sit at the tables.

If you have the ability to zoom in, you will see my home-made paper snowflake to the right, which is where I call home (my desk).


And finally -- the tables. This is the headquarters of Bully Casting. Everyone sits out here to fill out paperwork and wait to be interviewed. My desk is in the building to the right so I look directly at the tables. This is good so I can jump up whenever a new group arrives.

And there you have it! I'm not allowed to take pictures inside, so you'll have to use your imagination, but isn't the outside neat?
