Video Portfolio

 Video production has changed dramatically since Sanford's first professional video was aired 24 years ago. Yet professional video production remains a collaborative art and can only be learned from experience. Sanford's professional experience in most areas of commercial video production is a valuable asset in this tricky, fast paced profession. Understanding the complex technical and personal interaction necessary to produce a quality product, within budget, is essential. Teamwork, creativity, time management and technical skills are proven with each new production.

The videos below are just a small sample of Sanford's work, much of which has been lost to time and technical innovation (try find a MII VTR today). The videos have been compressed for internet downloading which also degrades their quality somewhat. You will need a Quicktime player. All are the copyrighted property of Sanford l. Hill, or others, and may not be used without written consent.
