SOBO received a call from REEL Good Productions on New Year’s Day, 2010. Could she produce a concert video six weeks away, in New Jersey? Um, sure. As if time wasn’t already an issue, SOBO didn’t actually win the bid until just two weeks before the concert. Nonetheless, Houston, all systems were GO.

With plenty of other work in the hopper, SOBO still managed to pull together the crew, six cameras, and a crackerjack director required for the live event. Several hours later, client REEL Good Productions had their first concert video in the can, thanks to SOBO.

The concert was Darlene Love’s comeback performance, “Darlene Love: The Concert of Love,” recorded live-to-tape, with post-production at NFL Films and Bennett Studios. SOBO put together the DVDCD, and packaging of the concert. This year, American Public Television jumped on board and SOBO stepped back up to the plate to edit the Public Television broadcast versions of the program. The broadcast version of the concert was recognized for a PEER Award by TVIA in 2012.
