On PBS: Same Nukes, Different Day

Whole Lot of New
It was another 3 months in a dark room, but this time in beautiful Atlanta, Georgia, working at North Avenue Post
on the Turner Upfronts. We produced 16 spots for all the new and upcoming shows on TNT & TBS. Working with Troika Design Group, I created the giant on-set graphics displayed on LCD screens that made up the set.

. After the Storm
follows a group of New York theater professionals as they attempt to put on a musical in storm-ravaged New Orleans with 13 kids from the community.
