MASTERS ENTERTAINMENT GROUP announces changes within their Production department.
For the first time in nearly twenty years, award-winning television production company Masters Entertainment Group will be making television without Chief Videographer Brendan Vining. Says Mr. Vining: “After two great decades with Masters, I’ve decided to pursue my passion and make the leap full-time into live sports production.”
Vining’s leap paid off immediately, as he has already begun shooting live NCAA football games and studio shows for ESPN.
He got a head start in the live sports realm in the last several years, playing a pivotal role in helping Masters Entertainment Group in their foray into sports live streaming. His live production resume with MEG includes cheerleading, NHRA drag racing, high school football, and NCAA volleyball and basketball. Through his years at MEG, Mr. Vining has played a role in dozens of nationally-televised series and programs.
Vining will continue to work with MEG as a freelance videographer.
In the wake of Brendan Vining’s departure, Masters Entertainment Group has introduced Austin Siejka (SAY-kuh) as Chief Videographer. Despite his youth, Siejka already has years of experience in live and studio television with cable provider and community pillar BTES in Bristol, Tennessee. Siejka, a graduate of Northeast State Community College, brings that experience and more to Masters Entertainment Group, where he has freelanced for the bulk of 2022.
MEG Head of Production Dave Dobson extolled Siejka’s virtues. “Austin’s professional skills, along with his great work ethic and terrific demeanor with his coworkers and clients, will make him a valuable asset to the Masters team.”
