Truth For Today on NRB Channel


The NRB Network has just picked up the television program "Truth for Today." Dr. Neal Jackson, formerly on the syndicated broadcast "Rejoice In The Lord," approached me last year about creating a show from his preaching that could air on a national network. It was quite a challenge, especially considering the fact that their church is currently in a very narrow traditional-style building that does not allow for manned cameras on the sides and the fact that no one in the church has any previous experience in TV.

We purchased the new HD switching system from NewTek called the TCXD-300 and three NXCam cameras from Sony, routing everything via HD-SDI cable. With creative shot calling, some blocking instruction for Dr. Jackson, and training for the camera ops, director and editor, we were able to get a professional look for the program despite having only one manned camera.

Look for the "Truth for Today" program in February on NRB (National Religious Broadcasters). The NRB Channel is currently carried on DirectTV and should be added to the lineup on Dish Network and Time Warner Cable in the very near future.
