3/9 - Up from the Sewage: SB Executive Producer Jason Ensler directs tonight's West Wing

There was a time, shortly after graduating from USC film school in 1997, that everyone in my class was floundering. I took advantage of this with Jason Ensler, hiring him to produce a 5 minute "promotional" video about the L.A. sewage treatment plant at Hyperion. He did a fantastic job with it (though you should have heard him complain about the smells out there). And fortunately, his career has climbed steadily upwards since -- tonight directing an episode of West Wing. But he retains his ties to his past through his continued role as an Executive Producer of Shifting Baselines.


Up from tha' shiznit: Tonight's episode of West Wing is directed by the same man who just six years ago was directing an educational video about the L.A. sewage plant.
