OConnor Helps Crescenzo Raise the Bar of Visual Excitement on "CSI: Las Vegas"
News: OConnor Helps Crescenzo Raise the Bar of Visual Excitement on "CSI: Las Vegas"Keeping a hit television show that’s been on the air for 14 years fresh and interesting is a demanding challenge. As scripts get bigger to sustain audience interest, budgets inevitably get smaller. “When a show reaches syndication, it has primarily done its job of crossing the finish line of making money for a very long time,” says "CSI" cinematographer Crescenzo Notarile, ASC. “So, why spend more when the networks, at this point, don’t have to. It’s a creative challenge to keep the audience coming back with what we have. It’s not making more – it’s making the freshest. Working with OConnor and it’s support equipment, it keeps us cameramen perpetually perfecting camera movement and striving higher to express a story. Each week we try to creatively surpass what we did in the previous episode, and in our own way, raise the bar – if not for the audience, for ourselves as filmmakers. And, I can always count on OConnor to be there to help me make this possible.”
