SOUND AND VISION MEDIA TEAM PLAYERS

Charles Vitale of Sound and Vision Media. Manager and video format expert.
Charles Vitale

Chief Operating Officer

With a background as a musician, Chuck is “in-tune” with production. In the early years, Chuck and his bands often recorded songs with Howard Cook at Euphoria Sound Studios. Fast forward to 1995; Chuck approached Howard and his new partner, Mark Helms, looking for a position in the audio department at their new E.S.S. Productions video company. Mark offered Chuck an internship as a video editor instead. Analog editing on the old tape formats was a thrill. Hearing those multiple video decks clicking into pre-roll, preview, and recording drew Chuck into the business of video.

It wasn’t long before Chuck became a part of the day to day studio business operations. They knew that the business was in good hands while they were away from the office.

Chuck’s occupation over the last 25+ years has included sales, administration, studio management, creative content editing, and production. His knowledge of the multi-video formats has existed for over 30 years. Chuck allows Sound & Vision Media to digitize all archival programs into today’s standards. Chuck’s skills also include knowledge of the Adobe Creative Suite, Steinberg Nuendo, Microsoft Office, QuickBooks, and overall I.T.

When fellow Sound & Vision Media team members have a question, they go to Chuck.

Accounting

Eileen Barkley Estrich has been managing the company books since 1997. Her attention to detail is astonishing. Eileen handles billing, accounts receivables, accounts payables, and… on a monthly basis, she will reconcile down to the penny. In addition, Mark and Chuck ask her for support with company payroll, banking, and insurance. Eileen’s background as a newspaper editor is an invaluable asset, as she thoroughly reviews documented communication with clients for typos, grammar, and syntax. Eileen makes sure that for every staff birthday there is a cake waiting in the conference room. In case you didn’t know, she is also a horse racing aficionado.
