Listen to this interview with CIIIs award winning editor, Oliver Peters.

 

Oliver Peters worked for Century III Teleproductions from 1985 until he left in 2002 to form his own company. Over the course of seventeen years, Oliver held the positions of videotape editor, project manager and operations manager. CIII was first located in the old Bee Jay Recording Studios on Eggleston Avenue in Winter Park, Florida, but relocated in 1989 to Universal Studios after being selected from many production houses to be the post production facility on the back lot at Universal Studios. During this time period, Orlando garnered the name “Hollywood East” due to the filming/taping and post production of films and television series in the Central Florida area.

Oliver is currently involved in production and post production of commercial and corporate projects; he is a writer for Videography and other industry magazines in print and online; he is a presenter at conventions around the country; a guest instructor at Valencia State College and Full Sail, and he shares his knowledge of editing systems and techniques as a consultant to television stations and production houses around the country.

The interview was conducted in May 2011 by his wife and Orlando Public Library staff member, Kim Peters.

My husband, Oliver Peters, was editing video for Jimmy Buffett’s new  album “Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays” and mentioned that he was working with one of Jimmy’s people named Mike Ramos. I nearly fell off my chair! If you are a Buffett fan, you will remember that the album “Banana Wind” has a hidden track. There is dialog leading up to the beginning of the song where Jimmy sounds like he is fumbling around looking for the hidden track and at one point he shouts, “Ramos, where’s the hidden track?”

I asked my husband if he would get Ramos to autograph my CD. I also asked him to tell Ramos that I was the person who left a huge basket of goodies at the “O”rena several years earlier including all Jimmy’s favorites. To my surprise, Mike Ramos remembered the basket of goodies that was delivered by security staff from a “Kim Peters” and told my husband that I should come and get the autograph in person.

I met Ramos in the video editing suite at Century III Teleproductions on the back lot of Universal Studios in the fall of 1999. Mike was most kind and even insisted on taking my CD and getting Jimmy to sign it as well! When he found out I was going to see Jimmy perform at the “O”rena, he gave us backstage passes to a preview party but the friend I was going with was in an auto accident that night and we were not able to attend the party.
