    The complete history of North Carolina. :eek3:


    Our company just landed a $3.6 million contract to produce a six part series for Public Television. We were contracted to produce a 13 minute "teaser" video last fall. We showed the video to the powers that be yesterday and walked out with a full contract to produce the entire series!

    Yikes!!!

    Thanks. It was totally unexpected. We thought that the state would use the teaser video to see if they could raise the funds. We figured that IF it even happened, we wouldn't know for another year or so. After the meeting we were asked; "so...when can you start?".

    I'll see my salary continue for another 3 years. My job title is producer/director however on this project, I'll be the cinematographer. Our VP is the producer/director for this project.

    A lot. I don't have the budget breakdown but I can assume that we'll take in at least 2/3's of that figure into the company. The rest will go to outside vendors, travel, expenses, talent, etc.


    This is the biggest project in our company's 25 year history.
