About Paul

I have a unique depth and breadth of experience in all areas of video production: from the nuts and bolts of shooting and editing documentaries, to the grind of managing daily newscasts, to the creativity and precision of researching, writing and editing scripts for major television networks and international non-profit organizations.

Both in the studio and on location, I’ve lit sets, directed local and national talent, shot and/or edited everything from PSAs to full-length television programs, to mini-docs to feature films.

My work has been shown in a wide variety of venues including regional fundraising events, black-tie dinners, community-wide celebrations, state-wide conferences of mayors, retail outlets, websites, regional and even national television broadcasts.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Photography

With a minor in Fine Arts Photography, a major in Broadcasting, and a media career spanning 20+ years, I practice my photographic and production techniques on a daily basis. Are your pictures worth 1,000 words? Do your pictures tell a story? Why hire a professional when you already own a camera & a computer?
These questions are actually popular subjects of workshops I have taught.

Video Production

Lights! Camera! Action!

If only it were that simple. Which lens should you use? What is your aperture? What format is the footage shot on? What SHOULD it be shot on? Interior or exterior? Day or night? What is the magic hour? Why do your edits feel "off"? Why does your project feel flat?

With a minor in Fine Arts Photography, a major in Broadcasting, and a media career spanning 20+ years in TV, news, documentaries and freelance, I practice my photographic, production and post-production techniques on a steady basis. Since my days at WSU, I have taught workshops, classrooms and volunteers what they want to know about the industry.
