In a boost to its broadcast production team, Broadway Video has brought on award-winning editors Rick Barlis and Anthony Gianni. The move, which comes as Broadway is marking its 30th anniversary as one of New York`s leading post facilities, represents the culmination of a year-long process to build a group capable of providing concept-through-delivery services for the production of promos, show packages and other broadcast media.
Barlis and Gianni, along with editor Dan Fisher, who joined the company last year, will work with Broadway`s Sound and Design departments on broadcast projects. The group is already busy with multiple projects for Syfy (formerly The Sci Fi Channel) and USA Network.
Barlis and Gianni each bring more than ten years of experience in editing broadcast media. Barlis arrives from City Lights Post, the post production wing of City Lights Media, where he worked on projects for Syfy, USA Network, History Channel, Spike TV and Comedy Central, as well as corporate media, documentaries and commercials. Having joined City Lights in 1997, he helped build its editorial department from a staff of four to a staff of forty.
Gianni has been a freelancer for most of his career and has recently worked on projects for CNBC, USA Network, Bionic, Nitrous, Animal Planet. His background includes long stints at Syfy and USA Network.
Broadway Video began growing its broadcast production resources last year. Broadway Sound, headed by Mike Ungar and Ralph Kelsey, is a leader in music production, sound design, sound editing and mixing for broadcast media, and is well known for its longstanding relationship with NBC. The facility`s design department, under creative director Katherine Burke, has had a strong start to the year with work for NBC, Showtime, USA Networks, American Express and Proctor & Gamble. The arrival of Barlis and Gianni provides added depth to the team, allowing it to take on multiple projects as well as projects large in scale and
