January 12, 2010 (Burbank, CA)       Createasphere continues its successful series of behind-the-scenes webcasts, The Best of TV: Dexter, on Saturday, January 29th.  “Dexter,” compelling and popular, follows Dexter Morgan, brilliantly played by Michael C Hall, as a Miami Metro Police Department blood spatter analyst who works to help homicide division solve murders, yet also satisfies his dark desires by hunting and killing bad guys who slip through the justice system.

The Best of TV series offers attendees the chance to hear from key creative team members, see clips they have chosen and ask them questions. Director-DP Romeo Tirone, and award-winning editor Louis Cioffi, ACE, joins Iain Stasukevich, Contributing Writer for American Cinematographer, in a far ranging conversation about working on the show and their own pathway to this unique serial-killer story.

The webcast offers a rare opportunity for attendees to interact and directly ask questions about how decisions were made and scenes were crafted.  The webcast series has been developed in association with American Cinematographer Magazine and American Cinema Editors.
