As a multimedia producer it’s not easy explaining what you do — there’s many moving parts to it. Video, writing and photography are all components of multi-media. It’s what I’ve done for 25 years and love every minute of it.
I’ve embraced the role as a producer that’s deadline driven, learning early on in my career that everything has a time constraint, and technology changes constantly.
Funny, I started out in journalism as a staff reporter for newspapers. It was a real learning experience and then came this rush toward digital content, and everything just blew up. I adopted the technology and that morphed into editing and creating automotive and outdoor/travel magazines for various publishers.
The work in my portfolio is editorial. Commercial type work for on- and off-line.
I learned the fundamentals of television production from the ground floor up, then co-created a motorsports TV show that aired on the SPIKE network. That led to producing more motorsports programming for five seasons — on the Outdoor Channel. As good fortune would have it, I’ve even earned a few awards along the way, too. — Larry Saavedra (email@example.com)
