Executive Producer, Philip J Day is proud to have produced the most successful season of the popular TV series for Discovery Channel. Day was responsible for helming 18 episodes in just eight months. Since his arrival on the series, ratings have doubled, reaching three million viewers by the end of the season.
This week an Edge West crew headed by director/cameraman Michael Ojeda travelled to India for a new TV pilot – that will develop into a multi-episode series. The story is still under wraps but we can tell you it’s a rags-to-riches tale of epic proportions leading our film crew all over the Indian sub-continent.
Edge West is delighted to have been asked to produce a visual extravaganza for Ted Talks. Four of our camera crews filmed in Long Beach, and Palm Springs, at the remarkable TED 2012 Conference. Our footage is being used for a special broadcast by NHK (Japan) and for a four-minute sizzle for TED on their web site. We are proud and honored to be part of the TED Multiverse.
