Robert has enjoyed being a staff member at LTV for a number of years now. He studied Film Production and has a bachelor of Arts degree from Penn State University. Robert has many varied interests/hobbies (“too many,” says his wife) ranging from Computer graphics/animation, the Titanic, wood working and miniatures to keep him distracted from the problems of production when he is not at LTV.
Jack is the longest-serving staff member here at LTV. Since the inception of the organization alongside founder Carl Piermarini, Jack has had a hand in virtually every aspect of LTV over the years including film, video, sports, archival, and on-camera talent. He also produced three Telly Award-winning music specials.
Most recently, Jack has served as Preservation Specialist. You know that stack of old tapes or film reels that existed long before you were born and you don't know what's on them but you swear you'll deal with them at some point, just not right now? That's where Jack comes in. He takes a memory, a piece of history, and preserves it in a modern format for posterity. We have no idea how he does what he does, but we know he does so fueled solely by tuna and black coffee.
