Directing Multi-Lingual Television

Every once in a while I get a chance to flex my foreign language skills. Sure it does come in handy when you’re ordering from the menu of a Portuguese or Spanish restaurant, but in this global TV market being multi-lingual is a great plus. Because of that, I’ve been able to work with many […]

Creativity is a Team Sport

Production or producing is a team sport. Or have we forgotten that fact, given the advent and advancement of new technology?  With the advancement of technologically creative tools and their inexpensive price points, we straddle the fine line between “because we can, does that mean we should.”  My point is this,  just because technology allows […]
