To Whom It May Concern,
Thank you for your time with this submission.
The main area of my experience is in broadcast television, both short and long form. My demos and background can be found at: www.torinamedia.com.
Since 2000, alternating as both a senior staff executive and independent contractor, I served as head of creative services and executive producer for Central Florida’s MYMEDIAWORKS advertising, a DYNETECH corporation. I produced over eighty DRTV and infomercial programs, for them and others, which generated over a billion dollars in sales.
Additionally, I have long been associated with award-winning television shows and top affiliations in the broadcast industry. At NBC NETWORK, I regularly controlled projects as large as political conventions, global live specials and worldwide sporting events, and received nine national EMMY honors in news, sports and entertainment. With budget responsibilities exceeding sixty million dollars, I served as executive-in-charge of production for such programs as THE TODAY SHOW, JEOPARDY, PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS, NIGHTLY NEWS, SPACE SPECIALS, PGA and LPGA GOLF
TOURNAMENTS, several WORLD SERIES and SUPER BOWLS, and more than a dozen documentary specials.
Post network, I created cable and broadcast television, music videos and corporate videos for such companies as AMERICAN EXPRESS, NICKELODEON, COLUMBIA PICTURES TELEVISION, the ABC, NBC and CBS NETWORKS, MCA and CBS RECORDS, ESPN, SHOWTIME, and PBS.
In 1990, I based my company, TORINAMEDIA, INC., in Central Florida to produce projects for HOME SHOPPING NETWORK and a variety of regional clients. Additional projects at the time also included THE PRESIDENTS for PBS - four one hour specials with former Presidents Nixon, Ford, Carter and Reagan, a thirteen part series on WWII fighter aces for the DISCOVERY CHANNEL called HUNTERS IN THE SKY, and worldwide shooting for SPIES, a twenty-six half-hour series on espionage for A&E.
Thank you again for your time. Sincerely,
202 East Hornbeam Drive • Longwood, FL 32779 • 407/682-1230 • FAX 407/682-1847
