Started in 1980 as day time coordinator and later as tape op (duty tech). In about 1985 I moved into Production as editor. During that time I was involved in the station's first forays into computer editing with the BVE3000 editor and handled most of the editing for 'Video 10' before they moved to Brisbane with Crown Productions. In 1989 I became Production Supervisor.
I left in 1990 because the only other option was to move to Coffs Harbour (with the retrenchment plans). I moved to Brisbane instead (Dynamic Vision Production House) in Oct 1990 and then returned to DDQ under WIN Television about 4 months later. I spent the next 18 years or so making commercials for the local market (plus an odd spattering of program work but that pretty much dried up not too long after Aggregation). In late 2008 I became Ignite superuser and was responsible for implementing the workflows necessary to transition to the automated news production system that is currently in use. In 2009 I moved to the University of Southern Queensland in their Audiovisual Services Department.
