On Season 13 of American Idol I worked three days as a Production Assistant on American Idol for the Detroit Audition Judges Round at the Westin Book Cadillac Hotel. On the first day, I helped load in the set and set up the production base camp. The remaining two days, it was my responsibility to ensure the Detroit finalists filled out the necessary paperwork, evaluations, and on camera interviews that were necessary for them to move on in the American Idol competition.
On Season 14 of American Idol I worked as a Production Assistant for the Top 24 and Top 16 Semi Final shows. I helped with transportation of crew and contestants between the Westin Book Cadillac Hotel and the Fillmore Detroit. I assisted in various production tasks, and I suggested and helped filmed Detroit landmarks to be used as B-Roll for the show.
One of the segments I helped produce is in the space below.
