Unique Needs of 24x7 Running Storage & MAM for Reality TV
Today’s reality TV productions are ambitious in their size and tight broadcast schedules, requiring a multitude of impressive engineering feats. When not tracking every move of a housewife, psychic medium or celebrity, other shows such as Hell’s Kitchen, America’s Got Talent or The Voice closely follow the progress of contestants and are broken up into segments: the documentary portions that tell the back stories of contestants, the behind-the- scenes shots that show the contestants preparing for the competition, and then the (sometimes live, sometimes not) actual competition portion itself.

How to Produce a Big-Game TV Ad in 3 Days or Less.
by featured blog contributor, Jeremy PinckertMost Super Bowl ads are exquisitely planned, taking months of pre-production involving the best creative minds in the business. They also are blessed with stratospheric budgets. But what happens when your client calls you to produce something for the big game, and it’s only weeks away? Put down that Ambien, there’s no need to fret - this survival guide can help you rise to the challenge! The University of Notre Dame found out they needed an “institutional message” to air during college football’s BCS title game. This title game was expected to draw over 30 million viewers, becoming the highest-watched sports game in history outside of the Super Bowl.

Creating Crisp Images for Breaking Bad
Even though Breaking Bad has come to an end, it seems everyone is still trying to hold on. (We're one of those people.) So we decided to get an interview with the man who made sure our beloved characters always showed up crystal clear week after week, colorist, Tom Sartori.Q: As a colorist for Breaking Bad, what was a major post-production challenge you had to deal with? A: A constant challenge was to maintain stamina throughout the eight-hour session budgeted for final color. Some 500 or more shots had to be perfected within this timeframe, so the procedure, in very rapid succession, was always: identify the game plan, execute, verify color match, and then move on to the next shot.
