I was on staff at MSNBC FILMS for five years, where we produced feature-length documentaries and series programming such as LOCKUP, SEX SLAVES, CAUGHT ON CAMERA, FUTURE EARTH, HEIST, POT BARONS OF COLORADO and more. One-off documentaries included TALL HOT BLONDE, SAVING CASEY ANTHONY, THE KENNEDY BROTHERS, TRAGEDY IN BOSTON. My very unique job included directing, producing, graphics development, post production supervision and management of deliverables. MSNBC docs home page HERE.

TITLE ANIMATIONS - One of my responsibilities was to conceive, art direct and supervise the creation of many title animations. Here's a sampling of typical msnbc opens. In the TED BUNDY, INSIDE THE BOX and SHOOT TO KILL opens, I also did the music and sound effects editing.
ABOVE - SHOOT TO KILL:
BRANDING • MUSIC • SFX - On this SHOOT TO KILL doc, I produced the title animation and edited the music and sound effects. I supervised branding standards, deliverables and QC from rough cut to final delivery for this, and other, msnbc docs.
ABOVE - CAUGHT ON CAMERA:
SHOOT/DIRECT WRAPS • SUPERVISE POST • PRODUCE • On this series, starting with post production supervision, I streamlined deliverables workflow, scheduling and record keeping. I also shot and directed host wraps. After pitching original show ideas, I managed in-house production, field shoots and post produciton.
DIRECT SHOW OPENS & WRAPS: msnbc commissions most of it's documentaries and longform programming. However, we produced our own titles, animations, opens and wraps. Here's a sampling. I directed talent in the studio and on location.
