For production, he advises on the most effective techniques and strategies for gathering the visual and audio raw materials that will become your documentary. For post-production, Gentile helps you tailor and streamline that material for maximum impact. And he advises on the use of social media to help you build a community and deliver your message to that community.
On another level, Gentile helps media outlets shift from traditional means of operation to the more contemporary digital hardware and software used in the increasingly competitive world of information gathering and dissemination. He introduces upper management and staff to the craft of "backpack journalism," advising how this increasingly pertinent methodology can streamline operations, deliver a more effective product and reduce costs. He gives employees a sense of the power and the promise associated with this emerging model. And he advises on how it can be used most effectively. Gentile helps organizations close the gap between managers and the younger generation of employees, assuring and instructing seasoned members of the shop that they have a place in the new world of leaner and more agile news and information gathering and delivery.
His experience as “Documentary Consultant” includes “The White House: America’s Most Famous Home." This full-length documentary was the centerpiece of a weeklong C-SPAN production about the White House, for which C-SPAN was granted unprecedented access to the residence of America’s chief executive. The program first aired on 14 December 2008 and has been one of the most successful C-SPAN broadcasts of its kind.
He also has worked with NBC News and USA Today.
