Question and answer

Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.

A. I work for all of the major television networks based in New York as well as many Fortune 100 corporations, academic institutions, non-profits and individuals. I have conducted, literally, hundreds of interviews with people such as Walter Cronkite, Drs. James Watson and Francis Crick, Congressmen Joseph Kennedy and Christopher Shays and Pia Zadora. The common thread in all of these projects is the formal interview where I am responsible for the lighting, sound, camera work and interview. These interviews normally last about a half hour and edit down into a 3 to 5 minute piece. These interviews end up on broadcast television and/or the Internet.

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. It is important to see the work, check references and get details. Don't just take their word for it. Make sure they outline what, exactly, they will do for you. Understand that even if they haven't produced a project exactly like yours, if they are professionals, they will be able to satisfy your request. And be clear that in the world of professional film/video production you very much get what you pay for. Be wary of someone offering a pro proudut for amateur rates. Expertise and equipment are expensive to acquire so you must be prepared to pay a reasonable, market-based amount to get a professional result.

Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?

A. What projects have you produced? For whom have you worked? What equipment do you use? Why? What, exactly, will I get for my money? Will I have editorial control during production and editing? Are you capable of producing the entire project from creative development to distribution? What elements will you produce yourself and what elements will you outsource? Will you hire professionals to create the elements that you outsource? Have you ever produced a project like mine? What would you consider to be your personal professional strength? Will I be a part of the creative process? Will I be allowed on location?

Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?

A. My work is differentiated from my competition because of my strength in the creative space. My ideas are inventive and usually have a sense of humor (where appropriate.) I am extremely flexible and able to adapt to a myriad of different situations. When I am confronted with a production-related problem I am unwilling to entertain the notion that the problem cannot be solved. I look for solutions regardless of how convoluted and complicated they may seem. "Failure is not an option." I am able to communicate on a variety of levels with a diversity of people and make people feel that they are a very important part of the production process...because, in fact, they are!

Q. Describe your most recent project, what it involved, how much it cost, and how long it took.

A. My most recent project was to shoot and direct a pilot television program. The show is entitled "Behind The Seeds" and features Spencer Christian, formerly a member of the cast of ABC's "Good Morning America." The project took 2 years to produce and cost $65,000. It has been screened at the Cannes MIP Festival, on KGO-TV in San Fransisco and by The National Geographic Channel, TLC, Shine International (NBC) and EspressoTV in the UK. The program features Dario Sattui and Castello di Amorosa, a winery in a real Tuscan castle, built with imported stone by Italian masons at a cost of 30 million dollars. It is located in Napa, California.
