An American classic

I edited from 3 nights of performance with 10 angles of HD video each. My challenge was to work on this project with the knowledge that I need to distribute to 3 differnt outlets: public television in the form of an Avid project with handles and separate layers for graphics and titles, HD master prores files for DVD and Blu-ray authoring out of house, and local cinema in the form of a blu-ray disc which I would author myself.


Available on Amazon

DVD + Blu-ray

This is a nearly perfect recording of one of Broadway's most loved and most revolutionary (for the times) productions . . . . . . And, gentle reader, the SFO does it proud!
