CBS Local: “Inside Album of the Year”

Client: CBS Local
Role: New York Director of Photography, Editor
Run Time: 5:05

I was the New York director of photography and editor on CBS Local’s 2013 Grammy offering, Inside Album of the Year (CBS Local feeds content to over 100 CBS digital properties). The series interviewed some of the country’s biggest music critics, DJs, and journalists in New York and Los Angeles for an in-depth look at each of the five Album of the Year nominees: Mumford and Sons “Babel”, The Black Keys “El Camino”, Jack White “Blunderbuss”, .Fun “Some Nights”, Frank Ocean “Channel Orange”.

I shot the New York portion and edited the videos based on all-around-good-guy producer Brian Ives’ direction. CBS.com ended up picking up the series and promoting, a big honor! The Mumford and Sons installment is one of my favorite of the series.
