About our Production Crew

To keep our costs down, and fees to clients, and to maintain some degree of flexibility in our production styles, Primary Counsel Productions will utilize the services of freelance professionals for various aspects of the production and administrative process.

However, we will maintain a small network of longtime associates and trusted individuals for these functions.

For example, as often as possible, we will use the videography services of Dave Smith (www.davesmithcameraman.com). Dave is a veteran news and corporate video cameraman, who has shot footage in many countries and on literally thousands of different projects. Dave and Jim first worked together as journalist-cameraman at CFTO-TV more than thirty years ago, and Dave’s personality and professionalism are beyond reproach.

Editing services will be divided among two or three specialists, as it is often difficult to book these services in advance, and assure that your “preferred” editor is available when you need him or her to be.

Production coordination will be handled by different production assistants. Because these tasks don’t require any great degree of experience, we’ll make an effort to hire younger people who have graduated from television production courses at local community colleges, to give them an opportunity for some practical, résumé-building credentials.

Administration will be managed by Louise Jennings, who has handled Primary Counsel’s books and corporate affairs for over a decade.
