Showtime at the Apollo with Steve Harvey on FOX
Video Format: Virtual Reality / 360 degree video
Social Media Platform: Facebook
Steve Harvey hosted a two-hour premiere special of "Showtime at the Apollo" on FOX. In this Virtual Reality (VR) 360 degree video, you'll see that nearly a half a million people turned to FOX's Facebook page to gain backstage access with Steve Harvey right before the show! I produced this video content with the amazing Jupiter Return who provided the super cool 360 degree camera. Steve is just as funny and inspirational in person as he appears on TV. Click on the video and use your mouse to look up, down, and all around the Apollo's iconic theater and stage. And yes, you'll even see me on stage if you drag your mouse to the left at the beginning of the video. 😃

My Kid Would Never Do That
A hidden camera series that aired in the spring of 2012 on Dateline NBC. It won a 2013 Gracie Award for Outstanding Series. We designed carefully thought-out scenarios that showcased how teens and pre-teens would react when faced with a challenging situation. What would they do when approached by a friendly stranger offering them ice cream? If they witnessed someone being bullied, would the step up? Would they get into a car with driver who appeared inebriated? Our cameras were there to find out.
I was involved in every phase of production – from concept to the final aired product including booking "real people," managing auditions and casting actors, day-of-shoot logistics and release forms, to tape management and managing edits.
The series won a Gracie award for best "Outstanding Series" in 2013.
