Since 2002 I’ve worked as a producer and educator making live action activity segments for nationally syndicated children’s television programs and web series. Have you seen the live action segments that follow the cartoon stories on many PBS Kids shows? That’s what our team does.
My role is focused on the content of our segments and working with the children. I’m a combination of producer, educator, mad mud scientist, and much more!
Usually I’m just off camera, but not always! You can play “Where’s Peter”on PBS Kids. Sometimes I appear as the adult walking with or helping the kids, other times I’m in the background trying not to be noticed.
Here’s a Youtube Playlist with some samples.
So far I’ve worked on the following broadcast and web-based programs, many of them Emmy Award winners:
- The Curious George show
- Peep and the Big Wide World – TV live action
- Peep and the Big Wide World – Teaching strategy series
- Fetch with Ruff Ruffman
- Martha Speaks
- Plum Landing
- Design Squad Nation
- Pinkalcious & Peteriffic
- Additional projects that haven’t aired which I can’t tell you about…
Live Action Production
If you are developing a project that includes live action interstitials and want to pick the awesome children’s activity section of my brain, I do offer consultations. I am happy to share my experience and offer advise. I do not sign non disclosure agreements, so consultations are focused on your asking about my expertise. Keep the classified details of your project to yourself. Contact me.
I’m Not in Development
Sorry, I don’t work in development and am not able to connect you with people in my network and make your children’s media dreams come true. I’ve worked with the same team as a subcontractor of a subcontractor for a handful of big clients for years and they have their own development people. Here are some tips and resources I’ve collected on pitching shows and a quick orientation to TV show Bibles.
