: Biscardi Creative delivers "Green Evangelicals" for The Weather Channel
1/19/2008 SUGAR HILL, GEORGIA
Biscardi Creative Media provided primary post production for the feature story, "Green Evangelicals" airing on The Weather Channel's "Forecast Earth" tonight. Artist Walter Biscardi, Jr. worked closely with Producer Bruce Burkhardt and The Weather Channel production team to bring the story together.
Using Final Cut Pro 6 with the AJA Kona 3 capture card, Biscardi integrated BetaSP, DVCAM and DVD material into an uncompressed, widescreen standard definition timeline. He also created original graphics and motion graphics in Photoshop & After Effects. The Weather Channel added all final lower thirds to the show.
"This was our first project with The Weather Channel," notes Biscardi, "and it was a great experience with a good workflow between our shop and the network. Since we're all on Final Cut Pro, I was able to deliver the story on a very small hard drive that would fit in your pocket."
This was also a reunion of sorts for Burkhardt and Biscardi having formerly teamed up at the CNN Enviroment Unit on the program "Network Earth."
