TMK Productions, Inc. - Producer/Editor
The Heart of the Matter is a documentary examining America's #1 birth defect, congenital heart defects. It began airing on PBS stations across the country on May 6, 2012 and, so far, has been seen in over 100 different markets. As one of my roles as producer, I read through over 700 pages of transcripts and selected the best bytes to create the paper edit. After reviewing with our team and making various updates, we were ready to begin the editing process. This short clip is the intro for the documentary; I chose dynamic bytes and B-Roll that best conveyed what we would be discussing in the upcoming hour-long program. The host was filmed on a green screen, so I used Motion to key out the green and inserted a white gradient background (01:41). I also used Motion to create the reveal of the program title and used Final Cut Pro to add the beeping sound effects (03:27). I finished by using FCP to color correct and to do the initial audio mix.
