Ahhh, so everything will be done in post from now on.

That is one thing I'd worry about, but hey----time will tell. This might actually prove that he can do a show live to tape. But with the rest of what's happened in 33, I'm not holding my breath. Yet.

I've seen none of that in this thread.

Congratulations on being the first, though.

Considering how far he's come in his career since Street Smarts, talk about a promotion of sorts for Richard Brian DiPirro.  Doing the granddaddy of game shows full time.  (I know Marco Mancini does the Deal gig now)  Best of luck to him.

ClockGameJohn has confirmed that R. Brian DiPirro will be "Price"'s next director.

Since DiPirro sure loved to take shots of the audience on Deal or No Deal, he'll fit right in here!

[quote name=\'CarShark\' post=\'206346\' date=\'Jan 15 2009, 06:31 PM\']I just never understood how he could have so many effects and transitions and other tools (especially with computer technology being so much better) at his disposal, and he chose to use so few.[/quote]
And that's a problem because......

Maybe this is just my prematurely decomposing brain, but I thought the 2 main complaints were that his timing was bad and his aim was off.  If the above contributed to it, so be it, but giving neat-o effects to every camera change isn't going to make things better.

My issue isn't with Bart leaving---I'm concurring that he was, at best, a really dull and uncreative director---it's with 1) wondering when all these recent firings will stop, and 2) that the idea of Price's directing becoming that of DoND's leaves me extremely skeptical....at best.

I have to wonder if you people would even *notice* if this hadn't gone public.

I've expressed my issues with DiPirro's constant audience shots, mainly because they're so gratuitous on D/ND. As Tim said, at least he now gets to directs a show where it makes sense to constantly go to the audience (except for the newly-implemented bump shots of the audience coming out of commercial).

Constant audience shots notwithstanding, he did a competent enough job with the Marathon and the other shows he's done this decade. Would it really be as much of an issue if he weren't involved with Endemol (given their reputation) as much?

But this one did not.  And what you said was:

"Every" article.  That means all.  Words Have Meanings.

This has been another installment of Matt Ottinger's Masters of the Obvious.
Stay tuned for all the obsessive-compulsive fun of Words Have Meanings.

He's Matt Ottinger. The trademark is implied. :)

Uh, yeah, Eskander's style was reasonably crappy enough that you'd notice a change for either good or bad.

I have to say I'm surprised I'm now one of 'you people' since my reaction wasn't rabidly positive.

Has anyone on this board ever actually directed a gameshow?  Or any show for that matter?
You sure are good at criticizing other director's work.
