Became Studio Producer certified at Queens Public Television (QPTV) in 2013, (camera, audio, director, lighting, studio manager, set, tape, etc). Have produced or crewed on more than 300 shows (including many LIVE ones) and still at it. Have since been certified as field producer and editor and won an Alliance For Community Media Hometown Award (public access nationwide industry version on an Emmy). Am now also a certified Studio Producer at Bronxnet.
I have one IMDB credit as Cinematographer for Miss Chinese Beauty Pageant 2015 (JIB operator). Have been JIB operator for three Chinese beauty pageants, one Chinese modeling contest and one Chinese model flash mob (Times Square, NYC 2015 summer).
Also, I have worked three special events in the Philippine Consulate, one in the Polish consulate and two in the United Nations, one of which was by invitation of the special guest being honored while a presentation about him was being shown world wide to close Holocaust Week.
I also accompanied my close friend and fellow producer Wanda (she does a lot of Polish themed productions) to be camera and crew during a private interview with the star of a Polish movie in the running for an academy award (didn't win), after which we were invited to a special screening of the film and the after party.
Have recently become QPTV certified on their new systems, Newtek Tricaster 8000, and associated equipment, due to their upgrading everything.
Have also crewed as cameraman, studio manager, audio, etc, on other award winning shows and series and a few that did very well in festivals.
One studio music video I worked as cameraman and advisor to choreographer was video for title song of Grammy winning album.
I think that's enough tooting my horn for now.
