    Consulting

    Combining experience acquired in both Broadcast TV and feature film Scott began creating custom solutions for known problems combining best of both worlds.

     

    Designing complex production pipeline schematics for multicam 2D/3D productions takes perfect understanding of video workflows from in camera color space throughout the entire video village and post all the way to a DCP or positive. Scott provides consultations or turnkey solutions for productions of any scale especially if it involves non trivial solutions. Such as set up a 4K streaming system in a bear den you can not service for 6 months. Or create an aerial camera solution capable of operating on north pole.
