Bridging War and Hope: the final edit

Bridging War & Hope is in the final stages of production.  This week and next I’m working with Jerry Lakso to bring the show home.  Most of the story crafting is done, Jerry will help smooth the show out.  We’re listening for redundancies, making sure the messages are clear and locking the sound into place.  After the final story is locked Jerry begins the detail work.  Sound, images, color, he has a knack to be able to make the camera I used and the skill I deployed much better-looking than it is.  Here Jerry is working with the key-image.  Designer, Ben Malley worked this up from an image Minnesota National Guard 1Lt Davin Fischer captured.  Collaboration makes projects like this really come together.

Sunday, October 7 at 8pm on tptMN is the scheduled broadcast-premiere date for Bridging War & Hope.  It will also be on-line and on-demand.  More to follow.  Thanks.
