Back in May, the Avid Lecture Series brought Josh Earl and Bob Bronow to campus, two crew members that work on the Discovery Channel’s hit reality show, The Deadliest Catch. Josh, a Supervising Editor, and Bob, a Re-Recording Artist, are responsible for turning hours upon hours of footage of life on a fishing vessel in the Bering Sea into captivating, EMMY-nominated television.

Check out some highlights from the presentation in the video below: Josh and Bob talk about how they get the footage from the ship to the studio, how to deal with editing more than 16,000 hours of footage (from multiple cameras and with sometimes poor sound), and how students can break into the reality television industry.
