New York City (November 18, 2004)–hsr/ny’s George Meyer has mixed six one-hour profiles on tennis titans Arthur Ashe, Chris Evert, Steffi Graf and Martina Navratilova, and skating Olympians Michelle Kwan and Katarina Witt for the A&E series, Biography, and NYC production company Bombo Sports & Entertainment. The six documentaries premiered on A&E Network beginning in October, and will also air on A&E/The Biography Channel on dates yet to be determined.
“I’ve worked on sports shows with George for over 20 years,” explained Bombo Sports & Entertainment executive producer, Paul Doyle, Jr. “In fact, the first thing we do in a production is slot George Meyer in for our sound. These shows, made up of talking heads and stock footage, are not dense from a sound standpoint. These are quiet shows, no music tracks and big elaborate sound designs to carry you thorough. There is no hiding, so there can be a lot of work for George. If there were any problems, he solved them.”
Added Meyer, “Although the audio post for the six docs was relatively straightforward, we had to fill in the silent B-roll, so there was a great deal of sound design which needed to be created as we went through the process.” Meyer employed an AMS Neve AudioFile workstation in the completion of the audio post for the six documentaries. Each show is delivered as an OMF.
