Built in 1920, Kaufman Astoria Studios (KAS) was a mecca for silent film production. From the advent of sound to the digital revolution, it has continued to prosper. It enjoys a reputation as one of New York's premiere video and film production centers, boasting six stagesÑincluding the largest one east of Los AngelesÑand KAS Lighting, a lighting and grip company. Now it adds KAS Music & Sound, an audio recording and post-production studio, to its fold.
Since HD appeared on the horizon, there have always been more questions than answers. This situation is reminiscent of a poster I once saw depicting an orangutan with a glum look on its face, sitting on a boulder in a pose resembling Rodin's "The Thinker" sculpture. Under the orangutan was written, "Just when I learned all the answers, they changed all the questions!" Even in 2002, that poster still sums up the state of the DTV transition. But it turns out that the one answer the industry really needs can only come from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).
According to Merriam-Webster, a "producer" is "one that produces; especially one that grows agricultural products or manufacturers crude materials into articles of use.ä This would make sense, as the word has its origins in Middle English, a language spoken largely by peasant farmers. And it still makes sense today, especially in television and film. Producers ãfarmä and ãgrowä certain projects (i.e. shows) into full-blown maturity. This is true in Adam Haightâs case. Heâs the executive producer, along with Jay Firestone, Avi Arad, and Rick Ungar, of the syndicated hit show MUTANT X. Haightâs job is to create successful ãproductsä÷top-rated television shows. Heâs done this before, most notably with another entry to the sci-fi genre, Gene Roddenberryâs Andromeda, for which he was one of the executive producers. With MUTANT X, it looks like heâs working his magic once again.
