Reality Heaven

Since my last visit to my much neglected blog...I've been terribly busy.

I've produced 5, or is it 6, Reality Specials since January.

My favorite 2 put me right in my idea of Heaven....Auto Racing.

In May I put together a 3 part special on Bowman Gray Stadium, better known as The Madhouse.

Back in March I went to Bristol for the NASCAR race weekend and did segments following RCR Driver Kevin Harvick.

Take a peek into my piece of Heaven....

My New Reality (Show)

When the bosses came to me with the idea of a locally shot reality series featuring characters from the Piedmont Triad of North Carolina I was all in.

My first assignment, spend 2 days riding with an Animal Control officer, see what you get, and produce 5, 2 minute stories and a 15 minute special. No problem.

I spent 16 hours riding the streets of Guilford County and Greensboro with Alexis Bennett, a well seasoned Animal Control Officer in Guilford County, who also happens to be quite the character.

I shot 7 hours of footage with my JVC-750 and 2 GoPro HD Cameras.

After about 60 hours confined in the edit bay - not in a row - but over the course of about 2 weeks - I had all the segments ready to air. One story in the 6 O'Clock news every day and a 15 minute special on Thursday at 10:45.

Next up - Another Reality Special - "Treasure or Trash" - with an even shorter turn around time. Let's Go!

Here's the 2 part 15 minutes special. (which clocks in at 12 and a half minutes.)

Hello Blog, I've Missed You, or Have I?

It's been more than a year since I've posted on the blog.

Who's fault is that?  I say it's Facebook and Twitter's fault.  But I'll also take responsibility.

I'll also try to post more here.  Hell, it's easier to post some things here than on Facebook.

While you're hear....take a look at this....it's one of my recent projects...FOX8 Reality - Animal Control.
