Facebook Live broadcast featuring criminal defense attorney, personal injury injury and television legal analyst, Mark Eiglarsh. Mark joined me live on the set as we discussed many of the big criminal trials and cases that have captured the interest and attention of many folks nationwide.

Our Fort Lauderdale production studio also included breaking news in the recent United Airlines incident, where a passenger was forcibly removed from his seat and dragged off the plane. We had in depth analysis of this very fluid and ongoing situation from Airline Weekly’s Seth Kaplan.

Yesterday’s LIVE FROM FSS show was exciting and explosive! Our Fort Lauderdale production studio welcomed Larry Lawton, a former jewel thief who spent 11+ years locked up in maximum security federal prisons, before turning his life around a full 180 degrees. Larry transformed himself into a motivational speaker, who made it his life mission to help and mentor troubled youth caught up on the wrong side of the law, with drugs, gangs and crime. Lawton is the founder of the Reality Check Program, a court mandated program that offenders must complete. The program educates these folks on the dangers and consequences that “bad choices” can have on their lives, giving them a no nonsense, realistic look at what a life stripped of all freedoms and behind bars can be like.

Larry gave the audience a show and tell demonstration of homemade objects he made while in prison and the survival skills he developed to stay alive! Larry showed our audience how he obtained a razor blade in prison, make a fire with no match or lighter. construct a homemade tattoo gun, make alcohol, and conceal contraband without being detected by any of the prison guards. And a little clue, it has to do with what’s known as “suitcasing.” And I’m not referring to getting ready and packing suitcases for a destination vacation!

Larry Lawton is also an honorary police officer and the first and only ex-con to be recognized on the floor of the U.S. Congress. He’s also been featured on many news networks and is often called upon to be a studio guest when there is breaking news pertaining to prison escapes, high stakes jewelry robberies and other crime related stories. Larry also co-authored the book entitled Gangster Redemption, along with New York Times Best Selling Author, Peter Golenbock.

This week’s Facebook Live show focused on the difficult and sometimes avoided subject of victims coming forward and reporting suspected sexual abuse. We also discussed the importance of both education and awareness in helping to prevent future incidents. We interviewed Stacey Honowitz, head of the Broward County State’s Attorney’s Office Sex Crime Unit, an accomplished author and television legal analyst.

Stacey referenced her two excellent books, “Genius With A Penis” and “My Privates Are My Privates” to illustrate the importance of teaching young children about the dangers of sexual abuse and how and when to report “inappropriate activity” when interacting with adults. We took a look at a sample of some of Stacey’s network television appearances in providing legal analysis and commentary on some of the biggest sexual abuse cases involving: Michael Jackson, Bill Cosby, Jerry Sandusky, the Duke Lacrosse Rape Case among others.

LIVE FROM FSS Platform Fort Lauderdale Video Production Studio


This video explains what the “LIVE FROM FSS” platform is all about. LIVE FROM FSS is a new online show we are broadcasting weekly on Facebook.  The show provides a “platform” to those who want to host their own online show. Maybe you’ve dreamed of becoming the next big star and hosting your own network news, sports, or entertainment show? But unless you are incredibly lucky or rich and famous, the chances of landing that dream job, are slim to none.  That’s where LIVE FROM FSS comes into the mix. We provide you that platform.  A professional, yet affordable solution.  A turnkey studio complete with all the bells and whistles you see everyday on television:   multiple camera angles, on set guests, remote Skype interviews, graphics, titles and much, much more!

Now, you may be asking, “Why should I pay for a Facebook Live production when I can do this for free on my iPhone?” I’ll respond to you by saying, “Yes you can do Facebook Live and YouTube live videos for free.” But if you’re trying to produce, a professional show, you want your audience to tune in and stay engaged. And if they see a video that was filmed with a selfie stick and smartphone that is shaky and tough to watch, that’s a sure way to lose your viewers. Not to mention inaudible audio that sounds like you’re in a fishbowl or tunnel!

Our studio has professional studio lighting, all sets are fully soundproofed, equipped with broadcast HD cameras, professional lavalier microphones, external monitors for video playback, and a green screen set that can be replaced with any image you want as your background… still photographs, video loops and even virtual sets.  The studio  set used in this video is from Virtualsetworks.    We keyed out our green screen background and replaced it with this sharp looking studio that comes complete with sixteen different camera angles!  The sets are layered Photoshop files that you can adjust, tweak, and modify.   All of their studio sets can be adjusted to your liking and you can, like we did, add your own  logo and graphics to fully brand your company!

This is a five minute excerpt video from our “LIVE FROM FSS” debut show on Facebook Live.


Facebook Live! Fort Lauderdale Video Production Studio Live Event Internet Streaming

facebooklive still #1 FSS blog

Live Internet Streaming is one of the most effective ways to communicate with your audience.  Until recently, only a select few, notably celebrities, had access to the powerful feature of Facebook Live!

Now, Facebook Live is available to anyone with an iPhone, smart tablet or webcam on their laptop!  Friends can instantly watch a live video message from their community of Facebook friends, view anything from live video status updates to the latest trends and social media buzz.

But for those folks needing a more professional image to promote their brand and business, producing a Facebook Live video using an inexpensive camera with poor video and audio quality is a sure way to turn away potential clients and customers no matter how great your product and services may be!  Facebook Live Business Videos demand a higher quality production!

First impressions mean everything!  That’s why our remote, uplink Fort Lauderdale based studio (servicing all of South Florida, including Miami, Fort Lauderdale and Palm Beach Counties)  is offering our state of the art news studio to produce your Facebook Live and YouTube Live videos.  The same studio that services all the major news and sports networks (including Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, ESPN, HLN, CNBC to name a few) is offering affordable Facebook Live and YouTube Live productions to you!   No need to spend tens of thousands of dollars designing and setting up your own professional broadcast studio!  Add to that, the cost of hiring professional camera operators, sound technicians, producers, directors, graphic artists, and other crew to run your productions!

FSS is your complete turnkey professional broadcast solution that won’t break the bank!  FSS has three studios sets, all of which are soundproofed, lit with professional studio lighting, and equipped with huge HD cameras.  The smaller “liveshot sets” each have a 70 and 80 inch LED TV monitor in their respective set.   The largest set is a green screen set, equipped with three HD cameras, and is used to broadcast entire TV and internet shows via our all in one Tricaster camera switcher, complete with graphics and titling, a professional Skype TX Talk Show Box, multiple phone lines (for talk shows, satellite media tours, talent IFB programming etc).  The studio has dedicated fiber lines (both inbound and outbound) and our internet streaming productions run off of this privately managed dedicated fiber!

FSS is the ultimate all in one video production studio servicing news/sports networks and small businesses alike.  Our studio also offers field camera crews, live event production (both in studio and onsite), commercials, PSA’s, corporate and small business videos and anything that can be filmed against a green screen!
