STEVE SHAW JOINS STAFF OF KITAY PRODUCTIONS
Company president Joel Kitay announced today that Steve Shaw has joined Kitay Productions as a full-time employee in the position of Senior Producer in the Owings Mills, Md. office.
Shaw will serve as a live producer and director for event-based clients, such as sports teams and television shows, as well as a field production supervisor, and an editor on the company's pair of in-house Final Cut Studio editing suites.
Shaw is no stranger to Kitay Productions, or its clients, as he has been a freelance production technician in a variety of roles with the company since 2004.
"I know first-hand the high quality work that Kitay Productions is known for," said Shaw, "and I feel honored to have been asked to join the team. I am especially interested in working closely with the company's sports and other live event clients."
A Maryland native, Shaw is a graduate of Towson University ('06), earning a bachelor's of science degree in Electronic Media and Film, with a focus on video.
Shaw worked for Erickson Living for the past six years, reaching the level of Community TV/AV Manager, supervising television studio installation and supporting existing television studios at retirement facilities nationwide.
Shaw also spent many years as a freelancer with several area sports teams, and worked in Beijing, China, during the 2008 Summer Olympics as a Commentary Control Room Operator.
"We have found an ongoing need for the production services we deliver to clients," said Kitay Productions president Joel Kitay. "We were in need of another producer who could immediately step into a management and leadership role, and we are excited about the opportunities that having Steve on board will allow us to pursue."
