Double Feature in the Future

Monday, February 7th, two documentaries we've worked on will make their US broadcast debuts.

At 9:00 on WLIW (channel 21 in the NYC area and Long Island) will premiere "Cab Calloway: Sketches". 

This picture was directed by Gail Levin and edited (and largely produced) out of our space.  We created the opening titles, the graphics package (lower thirds, etc) and an animated sequence in which a hand drawn Cab dances with an Alvin Ailey dancer.

The film was sponsored by European producers, ARTE leading the way, and created to air as part of a 25th anniversary broadcast of "The Blues Brothers".

Follow that up at 10:00 with a horse of a different color when National Geographic broadcasts "How To Build A Beating Heart" as part of their Explorer series.

This marks the second National Geographic program we've worked with Director Mark Manucci.  They are always great fun -for this we got to morph fetus arms into adult arms, project intestines on the leotard clad bodies of unsuspecting actors, a dozen or so animated shots and learn all about the exciting future of body part growing.
