McBob.TV is a full-service media production company specializing in documentary, scientific, medical, educational, and commercial video. Our documentary camera and audio work has included international travel and high-profile interviews, and can be seen on a multitude of media outlets, including Travel Channel, ESPN, BBC4, Russia 1, PBS, SI.com, Bleacher Report, and Car & Driver.
With professional experience in science, technology, music, and education, Kevin and Natalee McRoberts (co-owners) are as keen on learning as they are on informing. In addition to ongoing work with JoVE, the Journal of Visualized Experiments, we have produced online courses for institutes such as Johns Hopkins University and have also helped to produce courses and educational material for Discovery Education, the University of Virginia, and Eduson.tv.
We’re adaptable, flexible, mobile, and biodegradable.

This reel includes several representative samples of our work in both DP and solo operator capacities. In some samples from dual-system shoots (Rumsfeld, Chertoff), in-camera sync […]
