The TV show Beat the Clock has returned to a TV set near you. Overseeing the post-production work for the series is Oliver Peters, an Orlando, Fla.,-based independent post consultant and freelance editor.
Peters set up two Avid-based edit suites (which used a combined total of nearly 2 terabytes of hard drive media space) and a team of editors to edit and mix the 130 half-hour shows and two prime-time specials. The BPS Group (Cape Canaveral, Fla.) and Moving Picture Electronic Services (Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.) supplied post-production equipment and resources; Doug Grover of BPS Group served as the post-production coordinator. The editing team, along with Peters, included Ken Montgomery, Greg Honick, Mike Konstan, Shannon Brearley and Amanda Box.
According to Peters, "We went with an Avid-based installation because it allowed us to quickly edit and sweeten these shows, as well as making it easy to revise the cut for the producers, the network and the director. We ran the Avids nearly 24/7 without a hitch."
