About me

Bob Kovacs

Bob Kovacs

I am a writer, videographer, photographer and filmmaker in the Washington, DC, area. I have published more than 500 articles in various magazines and newspapers, and more than 1,500 photos in the same publications. Very active on YouTube, I have uploaded more than 1,000 videos to various channels -- everything from short films to concert performances to wildlife videos to tutorials. I've done it all!

High-Quality Experience

image215

It's important to me that my work -- whether it is writing, video or film -- be clean and clear. As a filmmaker, I've learned that it is relatively easy to get clean video, but it is much harder to get good audio. I go the extra distance to make the audio as clean as the video. And I know all aspects of a project, from writing to production to editing to rendering. Uploading to YouTube and managing YouTube channels is one of my specialties.

I do a variety of tutorial and "how-to" videos, including this one showing how to replace the brake light switch in a 2014 Mazda3. Note the clear lighting, clean sound and crisp editing.

I write regularly for publications in the television industry, including this article on a new video compression standard called JPEG XS.

One of my personal favorite articles was on a notorious hacking event in the television industry. Targeting the Emergency Alert System at a couple of TV stations, hackers triggered an on-screen announcement that there was an impending zombie apocalypse.

Writing: News and Features

Panasonic loaned me the AG-CX350 video camera to review, so I ran it through its paces. This is a nice camera, but not perfect.

I love novelty songs. Here, I sing a song called "Tattoo," which was written by Mike Rayburn.
