Welcome to the PIT List!

I'm a network field producer who also worked in local tv as a line producer and field producer. Over the years, I have had the great fortune to work with super people. Now I'd like to pass along what I know and rant a tad.

Guest segments

Common mistake I see with guest segments... not having enough video to cover the segment. If the segment is 2:00 long... figure :15 intro, probably :10 to come out. Just to be safe, you'll want at least 1:30 cut. Err on the side of caution. If you don't, you end up seeing the same video repeated two or three times.
