Welcome to Curtis!

Curtis Lotito working on a light

Currently working in the Graphics Department of MSNBC I am practiced with Chyron, Avid Orad, Avid Thunder Graphics Server, and Viz Trio and have worked on virtually all of the shows. In the past I interned at MSG Varsity immersing myself in the professional production of television and using the skills gained from Hofstra University to aid in the capture of live football games, and production of weekly taped programs. I have also had independent experience in creating my own pieces, including interviews, short fictional films, and editing those pieces. Not only have I garnered these technical skills, but have also spent time in management positions in the retail industry, where I oversaw teams of employees taking in, processing, and organizing products for stock.

About Me

Curtis at a Lightboard

I am a part of the Hofstra Student Alumni with experience in all parts of Television production. Sharpening my abilities and knowledge as an eager participant in campus productions I aided in designing and setting lights, shooting with cameras, importing and editing footage, creating and uploading graphics and writing and shooting my own interviews. I have been working with cameras since the beginning of High school and am still very dedicated to the process of creating my own productions.

Some of my freelance work includes, scouting locations, shooting, editing, and distributing dvds to customers. In my teamwork building I have taken the role of Production assistant on larger company projects; have edited a cooking show, Southern Fired Fitness; and while attending school was working full time in retail as a manager. All these jobs paired with my ever focused attitude has given me a great deal of experience in television production from the preproduction of writing and planning to working through shooting and finishing with the editing and distribution of the content.
