A place to introduce and tell a little about yourself.

Greetings, all!

Postby SaxMarc » Wed Nov 07, 2007 10:26 pm

Hello...I subscribed today, so I figured I should introduce myself. I was a producer/director for television back in the dark ages, circa 1980. I worked on news shows, sporting events, and the then new magazine show PM Magazine at a CBS affiliate in central Illinois. I then moved to Hollywood, and worked for the company that made black and white movies into color (Ted Turner was our biggest client.)

I got out of the game for many years, and am just starting to get back into it as a hobbyist. I have APE 4. I had 3, but it quit working and the folks at tech support couldn't help get it going again, so I got 4. So, I am trying to apply all the editing and knowledge I had back then in the analog days to this new digital stuff. I am a musician, and I want to do more with videos with my music.

I've been lurking here for a while, but I decided it was time to join the fun. Thanks for all your help and wisdom.

Welcome, Marc!

Sounds like we were in Hollywood about the same time. (I was there from mid-80's until about mid-90s.) I'm sure we could share a lot of stories about watching the old MGM studio lot change hands half a dozen times in as many years. (In fact, I think Turner owned it for a while.)

Glad to have you in the community!

Steve:
It sounds like you were there right as I got out of the business-I stayed in LA until 92, but got out of the business in '87 or so. Color Systems Technology was the company I worked for....Our offices were on Hollywood Blvd., then we moved to Marina del Rey. I believe Turner did own that studio for awhile. He and I fought about the amount of color in Miracle on 34th Street-he wanted more, I told him I thought it was enough. Guess what? He won. It was a very short discussion, too!

Thanks for the warm welcome here.

Man, talk about a classic 80s/Ted Turner argument!
