Michael (Phelps) Mania

I am sure you all were wondering where my Michael Phelps post was the moment the US won the 4x100 Medley Relay. Things were so crazy in here that I did not have a moment to do write.

First of all, we were assigned the job of putting together a comp real for Phelps. We included his every heat race, every final and every medal ceremony with announcer calls. Also we found every feature, profile and interview that NBC ran throughout this Beijing Olympics. It turned out to be a monster project... a 3 hour DVD that was given to him when he was in studio yesterday after his race.

But what an incredible day for everyone here... I don't know how many people are working for NBC in Beijing but the entire NBC compound stopped what they were doing, screaming at the top of their lungs and watching as Michael Phelps made history. The entire staff even camped out in the hallway waiting for him to come to the studio.

It was pretty amazing to have been a part of it!
