With almost 30 years in the TV production industry Rich likes to tell people that he fought in the trenches of the digital revolution. This gives him a unique perspective as to what worked or did not work as we moved towards today’s full digital workflow leaving the analog world behind. This continues as technology increases it’s ever changing pace, widening the gaps between between production and post production abilities and expectations.
Rich opened SilverBox Studios in 2009 providing services to bridge the gaps between the set and the edit suite being able to provide successful workflows for productions large and small. In 2015 SilverBox Studios opened the doors to The Crayon Factory which is Tampa Bay’s only independent color grading and editing suite. Allowing producers access to services that they had to fly to Atlanta or New York to obtain. Rich was just recently accepted as a member of the Colorist Society International. A guild representing colorists from around the world.
