proved himself as one of the top Technical Supervisors for many types of television productions.

countless Network Hidden Camera Commercials.
For over 20 years Eric has been working with the top ENG 3D production companies as Tech but mostly 3D DP.

One of the key points to Eric's abilities is to work within the budgets allowed providing the best and fastest way
of making a show work technically...whether choosing the right cameras and formats, making sure Post has all
cameras and recorded information in sync, to matching with audio to make sure all the systems are working together

Well, Eric is one of the best and fastest techs in troubleshooting systems and getting the show back running or
never letting the production slow down while fixes are being made.
You can check out Eric Bakke on imdb, but that only shows a minor listing of the thousands of productions he has
been on over the years from Olympic broadcasts with specialty camera, to Reality House builds (over 80 Reality
houses built), simple documentaries to over 20 cameras sync'd for hidden camera productions.
Since Eric has a DP background, he goes on tech/camera scouts and can choose the best camera positions on
multi-camera shoots, makes sure the lighting is appropriate or can make the lighting happen, diagrams very detailed
camera plots, works closely with the rental houses and acquires the best discounts for production rentals and keeps
the L&D down to almost nothing even on big shoots.
