Most people you talk to have no idea what a producer-editor in television really does. Any creative art career is generally glamorized and looked at as "easy" work. It's long days and deadlines that brings handfuls of gray hair- and I love it! I started making videos to show family what goes on, to answer questions and generally get better at camera placement and directing my own visual story telling. Everything is shot on my phone or my GoPro. No special plugins, no filters, just story and camera. I hate being on camera, so don't judge! Take a look and see what you think...
This year, I received two Lone Star Emmy nominations. Our Hurricane special, Hurricane Heroes, won for Weather Special. The Space Center Houston special, Independence Plaza: Innovation At Work and our Cadillac Shaping Houston: Anat Ronen were also nominees.
I went to the ceremony with other people from work- Beth Winfrey (also nominated) who was our commercial producer, Bobby Rigg, our Creative Services manager and his wife.
This is the gentleman who beat our special Independence Plaza: Innovation At Work. His documentary of remembering Vietnam deserved to win. He wore his blues to show respect to all those who got none (respect). He got a standing ovation.
What a great experience and incredible way to build excitement for next year! Cheers!
I'm honored to produce these vignettes in honor of our Veterans. I designed this campaign from scratch and actually went out on the shoots and asked the hard questions for the first time in my career. Work was completed in Adobe After Effects and Adobe Premiere. Camera work by Ben Hallock. Audio John Lantz. Bryan's story is first in a series of six.
Hurricanes in Houston are a theme every summer and it is my pleasure to work with the crew and the KHOU Weather team to create another hurricane special for the season. In addition to the editing of the show and all that come with that, I also prepared the 3d animation in the show using Cinema 4d and Autodesk Maya 2015.
