Session 6 - Nov 17, 2012

Session 5 - Nov 2, 2012

  • Rob Kirk - US audience - in the USA it is broad exposure through media
  • Emily made Rob nervous - loss of control; contrived; tremendous story at OSE, but need to make sure TV doesn't control the message. If we can't do it in a correct way, we shouldn't do it - according to Kirk.
  • Rob had a meeting w/ head guy of History Channel. Leader in reality vision. History channel - kind of tacky. Then there is H2 - content-oriented version. Serious content, not character-driven, contrived programming. Ex - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Modern_Marvels - is an H2 program. Mike is the exec. Showed them TED Talk. Typically pitches 10 ideas, this time TED Talk was compelling. Not right for History Channel - but H2. Competes with Science Channel by Discovery channel.
  • Key: absolute final editorial control lies in us. Not in contract, but show design must be focused in a specific way. H2 has 50 million homes. Ex - Modern Marvels has viewers. H2 Network started because History Channel left their core audience behind.
  • Marcin - racing the time, bringing people together for production. People with basic capacity.
  • Watch word in TV is stakes - business/financial; success or not;
  • Mananging leadership, enterprise, production, recruiting
  • Haliburton vs 12 Farmers.
  • Powerful force - lots of strength to do this. Unique vision, strength, and quality. This would give a certain visibility - transparent - open source, transparency. Rob is wise and has been in this game. Non-interference basis - producing. Ex. They did 3 months of following basic training starting with civilians. Start of Army of 1 campaign.
  • This involved 1 hour per week. On other days, just talk 'on the fly.'
  • Works on my schedule - when is the time? Few shows for 2 months of filming.
  • 3-12 months window for air time. Each episode - gather everything - 2 weeks. That depends.
  • Time, machines, etc.
  • Rob would be there a lot, and every phase of editing.
  • Follow and non-interference. On the fly interviews. Once a week for an hour.
    • Creative direction is wholly Rob.
    • Preproduction - Rob understands what I am doing. 2 people - every day producer + Rob Kirk. Full time. Camera, sound, producer + production assistant. On-demand structure. The crew itself has to be on-board too. On-board with mission. Helping in what we are doing.
    • Series for 8-12 episodes right away. Popular series.
  • Rob Kirk - working on 2 series right now - 12 people active + freelancers
  • Emily rad small production as well - understands enterprise.
  • About 8-12 months for the series all together. Shooting completed - then editing phase. Then may come back. $250k/hour episode.
