Producer Restaurant Impossible 13

12/15 – 6/16

My overall responsibility was to conceptualize and execute the story arcs for each episode. I created beat sheets derived from scout footage and would oversee package, hidden camera, scout footage and behind the scenes edits in pre-production. In the field, I work with the talent and production team, to carry out beats and steer naturally occurring scenes into a cohesive story. I lead our 40-50 person production team, prepped and set up scenes, changed beats on the fly to adapt to the developing story-lines, managed/directed talent, conducted interviews and debriefs. After shooting, I work with the editors and story producers to mold and act out footage into a complete episode. I was also responsible for writing some copy for the Food Network website and cable menus.
