Ever wonder how they make the people in network news magazine segments look and sound so good? It is because the producers and camera people sweat the details, from backlighting to microphone placement to shot selection and timing in the edit room. In the trade, this dedication to look and sound are known as “production values.”
New Media Mill marries these network news magazine production values with the latest generation of digital cameras and editing tools. The result is a rare blend of quality and value.
The production team at New Media Mill is led by two colleagues formerly of ABC News: Stew Harris and Rick Nelson. Both have received a variety of national broadcast awards and worked with reporters including Diane Sawyer, Sam Donaldson, Chris Wallace and Bill O’Reilly.
They are joined by a roster of talented young digital video shooters and editors including John Fiege, Rasheed Willis, Lantz Barbour and Gabrielle Weiss.
Whether your needs are polished public service announcements for broadcast or a streaming coverage of your conference, ask New Media Mill to share their expertise. For more information, call Stew Harris at 202-728-0011.
