Gino Del Guercio, President
Gino Del Guercio trained as a television producer at WGBH-TV and has 20 years experience producing and directing national award-winning science documentaries. Since 1989, he has directed the majority of BSC Inc.’s programs and series. He is also an adjunct professor of Journalism at Boston University’s College of Communications, and has over the years trained many young journalists in film making and editing. To Gino, documentary film making is “an exciting and challenging blend of journalism and Hollywood. It requires both the left and right side of your brain. On the one hand films have to be exciting and enjoyable to watch, on the other hand they have to be accurate and meet strict budget and time constraints. It’s also very much of a group effort with dozens of creative people. And when it works well the final product is always far more than the sum of its parts.” Gino’s work has won him an Emmy, a CINE Golden Eagle, an AAAS Journalism Prize and many other awards.
