New York, NY (June 16, 2008)–Pilot Productions’ Globe Trekker series, seen regularly by 30 million viewers in over 40 countries, recently matched its footage of the world’s most enticing destinations with VO recording sessions at Nutmeg Audio Post.
The three hosts of Globe Trekker–Brianna Barnes, Megan McCormick and Holly Morris–visited Nutmeg senior audio engineer Tom Perkins’ suite to record VO for their shows. “The various hosts of the Globe Trekker series are young, smart, obviously well traveled and have an insatiable curiosity for the world around them,” Perkins says. “They go to far corners of the world under sometimes risky conditions, and present views of the geography and cultures that many of the glossier travel media do not. They’re all outgoing and engaging people, vibrant and fun to listen to and be around.”
“Nutmeg has the experience, the people and the technology to make VO record to picture a seamless process,” comments Perkins. “We have all popular video formats including HD as well as the best HD monitors in the control rooms and studios. An excellent monitor is important in the booth so the actor can see the level of detail they need to properly match picture. This is, of course, critical in ADR work but important in any narration. Nutmeg recognizes that the best tools contribute to the best product.”
While each Globe Trekker episode has its own fair share of thrilling experiences, Perkins was particularly inspired by McCormick’s bold quest into the forests of Colombia to see how cocaine is manufactured. “That’s the kind of risk-taking that makes the show so good and illustrates the kind of fearlessness these young hosts have,” says Perkins. “I have tremendous admiration for that kind of investigative mindset–she did a great job.”
