Digital producer (Full Frontal with Samantha Bee)

Who are you, and what do you do?

My name is Ana Breton and I'm a Digital Producer for Full Frontal with Samantha Bee. I film and edit videos, take behind the scenes photos, and co-manage our show's social media accounts and website.

What hardware do you use?

At work I edit on a Mac Pro desktop and two Samsung monitors; at home I work on a 27" iMac; and on the road I edit on a 17" MacBook Pro. For filming, I use a Canon EOS C300 with Canon lenses; for photos I use the Canon 5D Mark III. If Apple or Canon people are reading this, please send me free stuff. I love you.

And what software?

For Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, I edit videos on Avid Media Composer. I edit photos in Lightroom and make mockups in Photoshop. For script-writing, we use Scripto, which allows our entire team to collaborate at the same time. At home, I edit freelance projects on Premiere Pro under a Snuggie.

What would be your dream setup?

My ideal set up: for filming, a small studio with a green screen, white cyc, and endless equipment to play with. For editing, as many monitors as humanly possible. I love monitors. If you're someone who makes monitors, well, you know what to do.
