ESPN - 1986 American League Championship Series and Donnie Moore

Described by sportscaster Al Michaels as the most dramatic hour of sports he had ever seen, the fifth inning of the fifth game between the California Angels and the Boston Red Sox was simply sensational.

The unscripted drama did not just end the Angels quest for a trip to WorldSeries it also began with the beginning of the end for All  Star relief pitcher Donnie Moore. Having been blamed for throwing the game-losing pitch over the next three years his health, finances and metal state all came to a crisis when he wounded his wife and shot himself. Eric Marciano partnered with Jason Goodman, co-creator of VHS1's  "Behind the Music" to produce and edit this powerful documentary with their new company Green Light TV for ESPN Classics.

TLC's SWAT Stories

What a strange tale this production was. The triumvirate of Steve Weinstock, Michael Rosenblum and Glenda Hirsch of TruTV had a tremendous success on The Learning Channel (TLC) with "Trauma: Life in the ER" and they were hoping to translate their idea of "reality tv" from the world of the emergency room to the world of the S.W.A.T. team.

It wasn't easy. As one of the video journalists Eric Marciano spent two months filming with the Newark, New Jersey, Emergency Services Team (SWAT). Shooting with the then  new DV camera the Panasonic EZ-1 and radio microphones. The best part of the production was working with Emmy award winning videographer Bill Gentile and making some lifelong friends with this amazing group of elite policemen.
