Atlanta, GA (July 31, 2009)--Crawford Post is providing HD editing, sound design and mix along with HD formatting for the on-going documentary series, Great Museums.
The award-winning, public television series highlighting America's museums, from independent production company Echo Pictures, airs across the country and premieres in July on Hulu.com and Snagfilms.com.
Working closely with Echo Pictures, Crawford Post's senior editor/HD specialist Ron Heidt performs the online edit and seamlessly integrates dramatic location footage, archival material, digital assets, titles, graphics and credits. Steve Warner works on the sound design and mix, and HD specialist Sheri Martin formats the files for delivery on the web. Credits also go to freelance editors Al Abronski and Bobby Jones for the offline edit and production coordinator Randall Penn, all of whom are Crawford alumni.
"Echo Pictures brought Great Museums to Crawford Post when the series was making the transition from SD to HD," says Marc Doyle, executive producer for Echo Pictures. "The Great Museums brand has been building itself on public television for the last 10 years, and now it's migrating to internet syndication and various mobile platforms. Thanks to Crawford, I have a great deal of confidence in how our work will be effectively distributed, particularly in the challenging and often confusing world of HD post production. Extraordinary challenges are not roadblocks for Crawford. They solve every issue effectively."
"Public television technical standards are very specific, and it's important that each requirement is met," says Kathleen Fitch, vice president of Post Production for Crawford. "In the world of HD TV, industry standards are still being worked out. It's essential that our team stays current on all standards for the various networks. Echo Pictures has captured pristine footage of America's most valuable institutions, and our role is to ensure that it's delivered to television audiences the same way it was acquired."
Each episode of Great Museums tells the story of a single museum using interviews with museum experts and stunning footage
