One house. Ten strangers. 100 days. 28 cameras. 60 microphones. Every moment captured on video. No contact with the outside world. No luxuries. Who will outlast the others to win $500,000? You will decide.

I was Technical Supervisor, Post Production for the first season of the CBS Network show, "Big Brother",
working under the famous Gene Crowe.
I helped build and operate the technical side of the post facility for the series.
Sony did a great job as System Integrator. Sharp people, good equipment.
We are scheduled to air FIVE nights a week for three months!
See CBS.com for more info on "Big Brother"

Bungalow 23 on the CBS Studio City North parking lot where we'll do the post for the series. Inside, a lot of boxes for Don to check out.


We have three non-linear DNE bays and one on-line bay to install and adjust.
We are mastering to Betacam SX in the house and editing to Digital Betacam for final assembly.
