Prior to the start of Alliance Video and Post, Bruce Colgate was an on-staff Director and Director of Photography for EagleVision, Inc. He served as Director of Photography and Co-Producer of the highly successful PBS American Masters Special ``Jack Paar: As I Was Saying . . ." the third highest rated show in PBS history. As a lighting designer, his best known work was seen in “Christmas Is Coming”, a holiday special featuring Rob Mathes, Vanessa L. Williams, Ossie Davis, Michael MacDonald and David Sanborn.
His corporate productions included a transglobal production for Praxair, with photography in China, Spain and across the US. Work for humanitarian agency “AmeriCares” took him to Ethiopia just after a military coup had stabilized their long fought civil war.
In the live production environment, he has staged numerous concerts and large-scale events for thousands of spectators, many on Disney property in Orlando, Florida. He has also been involved in DVD and CD-ROM authoring and production, and Internet web page design.
Some of the DVD products include the re-released series “Leonard Bernstein’s Young People’s Concerts”, titles for Disney Educational featuring the films “Sounder”, “A Wrinkle In Time”, and “The Miracle Worker” among others. As an editor, his clients included commercial editorial for CBS and FOX television stations as well as a series of projects for musician and recording artist “Yanni”, including work performed for his recently concluded Winter 2004 tour.
