Top Picks Jim Baugh Outdoors TV 2018

2019 Marks the beginning of Jim Baugh Outdoors TV 31st year in broadcasting and oh what a ride it has been! Each year it is a tough challenge to pick out our favorites and every new feature we produce is always better than the one previous, and we have been doing this now for over 30 years. Where does this mantra of always improving come from?  It’s a deep-rooted seed my father the Judge impressed on me when I was a little boy.
“Jimmy, now you can be anything you want to be when you grow up! You can be a doctor…a lawyer…you can even be a ditch digger, but just make sure of one thing. You are the best dam ditch digger that ever lived!”
Sooooo, with that engrained in my brain, myself and those associated with Jim Baugh Outdoors TV have always strived to constantly improve our program with every single production we produce. Now after 30 years of doing so, this is where we are at… for today. 2019 is a new year with even better productions from JBOTV.
2018 recap:
This year was one of my favorite years in the shows production history for a variety of reasons. One of which is that camera/film technology has caught up to such a high degree of quality and versatility, pretty much anything we want to film whether it be 200 feet underwater or flying 400 feet above the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel, we can do. This has not always been the case, especially during the days of analog tape-based production solutions. At this point of television production for JBOTV, if I can think it, storyboard it, and write it, we can film the story no matter what it is. This gives us an amazing amount of freedom to produce the best features possible.
Jan Blizzard 2018

January of 2018 kicked off with a blizzard here at Mermaid Bay Studios on the Eastern Shore but also kicked off two of my favorite features; the Miami International Boat Show where we featured the first ever Tideline 36ft Catamaran and an awesome return to Sea Bass fishing offshore the Mid Atlantic.

This year also marked big news for JBOTV, our new home base port and sponsor The Oyster Farm at Kings Creek in Cape Charles Virginia! Without a doubt one of the all-time best marina resorts and event centers on the Chesapeake Bay and we are honored to base our show out of the Oyster Farm. We will be posting soon some “Don’t miss dates” for 2019 so you can mark your calendars when to book your slips and accommodations at the Oyster Farm.
Due to the enormous amount of aerial filming JBOTV has been producing for the show, we opened an affiliate company called Mermaid Bay AIR which specializes in cinematic aerial video/film production as well as color grading. I obtained my FCC certification and now am a licensed remote pilot airman and fly all our aerial missions/productions.

With one of the busiest production years yet somehow, I managed to compose and record my first piano concerto “Underwater Improv”. This 30-minute, 3 movement piano concerto is all set to our underwater dive footage of the Palancar Reefs and Canyons in Cozumel, Baja, and Hatteras North Carolina. Divers were JT

Barker and Ben Baugh. I was extremely pleased and a bit surprised at the incredibly positive reviews and comments coming from all over the world for this concerto. The third movement was featured on One World Radio in the UK and the entire concerto is being considered for the Ocean Film Festival 2019. JBOTV has already used segments of this piano work in various short films.
We hope you enjoy these features and most all of them are available for free to watch both on our JBOTV YouTube Channel as well as facebook/social media. If you view on JBOTV please do subscribe to our channel, it cost nothing, and YouTube likes it for some reason.
Many thanks to my wife Ms. Donna aka “Ms. 11” for putting up with me and the sometimes craziness of producing an outdoors tv show. My family has always been supportive and could not have managed producing the show for so many years without their support, love, and understanding.

Tight lines and Godspeed.
