From starting out in music management, to editor at the Discovery Channel family of channels, to senior staff editor helping build a boutique post/production house, then starting his own post/production house, there’re few creative situations Dave Gorrie hasn’t been in. Dave has been an acquaintance for over a decade, someone I always enjoy talking with about projects, process, or whatever else crops up.
In addition to his post experience, Dave directs, DPs, produces, works with clients during pre-production, now through his own company Red Apple Post. Dave is on Twitter, Red Apple Post is on Twitter; check ‘em out!
Music for this week’s show is from the live studio music and interview show Aux Send.
This episode is a conversation with live TV news director Frank Corbett. Frank talks about the day-to-day working life of a freelance director in the largest TV market in the United States: New York City. From working mainly with two different clients, MSNBC and New York One, Frank gets to experience an almost entirely automated work environment to a bustling “newsroom” of activity.
Frank talks about his path into TV (he had no real interest), the stations he’s worked in in his relatively short career, and what it’s like to be one of the younger director in cable news.
