I'm Dez Alvarado and here's a little bit about me:
I am an award-winning (Peabody, Columbia Du-Pont) producer, editor and creative media specialist with 20 years experience in TV and commercial production. I've produced content for NBC, FOX, CNN, HLN, Red Bull, American Idol, So You Think You Can Dance, Capitol Records, Interscope, Intel, Apple, Chevy, Dodge...and others. I am currently the Senior Producer for the Charter Communications / Spectrum Content Marketing team where I develop a variety of media content for the Charter and Spectrum brands.
In general, I specialize in creating all sorts of original content. This includes: commercials, promos, TV spots/segments, social media, live TV, live events, news, branded content, marketing presentations, featurettes, sizzle reels, documentaries...and more. I have experience on the agency side of production, as well as the creative. But also I have spent a lot of time in the world of live TV and broadcast news. For close to a decade, I worked at CNN where I wrote and produced thousands of segments and news stories. In addition, I helped launch several shows, produced pilots and numerous specials and breaking news events. As a result, I am very familiar with control room operations and understand fully how to manage rundowns for live events and broadcast news coverage.
Another one of my passions is aerial cinematography. To check out some of my drone and sky stuff, visit my aerial media company Sky and City Aerial Media at www.sky-and-city.com, or click the link "aerial media" on the left of this page.
I genuinely feel lucky to be creating all sorts of media content professionally. If there's a camera, gadget, drone or cool new editing program or plugin... it's got my full attention. Even better, I love collaborating with talented people from all types of backgrounds and skills to make media that will move, inspire or entertain.
