For over a decade, OMG has been recognized as a leader in long-format national broadcast video through its award winning television show, America’s Outdoor Journal. OMG also produces the national television shows, Inside Passage and CAMP YMCA, Western Sportfishing with Lee Horsley as well as the nationally and regionally broadcast series, The Best of Fishing the West.
The programs have broadcast on national cable networks such as Versus, Outdoor Life Network, Fox Sports Network, Outdoor Channel and Comcast Sports Net to name a few. OMG has been the recipient of multiple Telly® Awards (cable industry equivalent to the Emmy®) for its work, including Best Cable Outdoor Program in 2001 and 2005.
To position itself as a leader in the outdoor adventure industry, OMG has, and will continue forming, a number of key strategic alliances. Doing so combines some of the strongest creative, production and media professionals.
Russell Cameron, President/Executive Producer
Russ Cameron’s first management position was through an acquisition of the local television broadcast signal for KWBP-TV in Portland, Oregon.
During the three years he and his partners owned and operated Portland’s WB affiliate, they put the station on the map with its stellar ratings and revenue performance, turning the station into one of the leading performers in the early years of the WB Network. KWBP-TV’s rapid growth drew the attention of WB Network Founder and CEO Jamie Kellner, who formed his own broadcast group and purchased the asset for $27 million.
Russ’ passion for television production and the great outdoors led to investments in media companies and later his own production venture, OMG Multi-Media, (“OMG”). OMG has since created and distributed several award-winning television programs, including Fishing the West, America's Outdoor Journal, Camp YMCA, Inside Passage and Western Sport Fishing with Lee Horsley. These programs broadcast on national cable networks such as Versus, Outdoor Life Network, Fox Sports Network, Outdoor Channel and Comcast Sports Net to name a few. Russ earned multiple Telly® Awards (the cable industry equivalent to the Emmy®) for his work, including Best Cable Outdoor Program in 2001 and 2005.
Russ was one of the first producers to provide exclusively high-definition content to outdoor adventure cable networks. He has traveled the world to capture high-definition images of extreme athletes, outdoor enthusiasts, breathtaking landscapes and creatures great and small.
Collin Ivy - Producer/Director of Photography/Editor
Collin Ivy began his production career shooting for Speed Channel, then as an editor/cameraman for Discovery Health, and Starz! Entertainment before beginning work at OMG MULTI-MEDIA, (“OMG”). For the next few years Collin worked as Cameraman and Editor for OMG on a variety of content including the award winning television series America’s Outdoor Journal as well as Western Sportfishing with Lee Horsley both of which broadcast on national cable networks such as Versus, Outdoor Life Network, Fox Sports Network, Outdoor Channel and Comcast Sports Net.
During this same time, Collin also was the editor for What the Dogs Taught Me, an Upland Bird Hunting program, which aired on Outdoor Network, Pursuit Channel and the Sportsman's Channel. Being behind the camera, occasionally in front of the camera as well as an editor gives Collin a unique and practical perspective on the production process. Knowing what each step requires and being able to perform these steps, makes Collin adept at streamlining the workflow for a very efficient production pipeline.
Bill Greene – Producer/Director of Photography/Editor
Bill Greene entered the production industry in major feature films and television series as a production assistant and location scout in such notable work as DIE HARD 2, PERRY MASON, FATHER DOWLING, DIAGNOSIS MURDER, and FLASHBACK – all in the early 1990s. From there, Greene became an Associate Producer & Producer for large budget Corporate Videos and Broadcast TV Spots. Soon after, he was hired as a director & editor for AMERICAN BUSINESS JOURNAL as well as AMERICAN MEDICAL JOURNAL where he travelled the United States interviewing and documenting major
corporations and medical firms for broadcast tv promotion. Bill spent 2 years working as one of five key production personnel for the creation of the nationally known Video Professor series of Computer Learning DVDs, nationally advertised on cable networks by John Scherer – which brought in over $65 million in revenues. During this time, he was personally hired by Steven Spielberg, through Bill’s demo tape, to be one of a select group of videographers to document the living testimonies of the Survivors of The Shoah for the SHOAH FOUNDATION. This honorary position catapulted both his career and ambitions toward more substantial historic documentary works. In 1997, Bill was recruited to what became a 7 year Federal Government Contract by Nashville’s Scene Three. As their Producer/Editor, he won over 20 Telly Awards producing documentaries for such agencies as National Park Service, Selective Service, Bureau of Indian Affairs, Fish & Wildlife Service, Immigration & Naturalization Service, Department of Defense, Transportation Security Agency, Environmental Protection Agency, and many others. From 1998 to 2004, he was one of only two producers, nationwide, cleared to produce for any agency from the White House on down, under the contract. Additionally, he obtained a basic level one security clearance.
Bill’s producer/editor/videographer highlights with the Federal Government include such nationally distributed documentary work as “BATTLE OF HORSESHOE BEND” as narrated by renowned Native American actor Wes Studi, “LOWER MISSISSIPPI DELTA” for the Jean Lefitte National Historic Park, and “IMMIGRATION ANCESTRY” playing at the Ellis Island Visitor Center – a work licensed to such feature films as JERSEY GIRL and HITCH. Bill’s passion for television production and the great outdoors led to production for two of the nation’s top 10 outdoor field sport production companies ORION MULTIMEDIA and OMG MULTIMEDIA. Bill earned multiple Telly® Awards (the cable industry equivalent to the Emmy®) for his work, including Best Documentary for LOWER MISSISSIPPI DELTA. Currently, Bill produces the popular award-winning sportfishing tv series LIP’EM & RIP’EM for the VERSUS/NBC Sports Network. Additionally, he co-hosts a popular weekly online radio talk program called the ROARING SUCCESS RADIO HOUR. Bill has interviewed such legends as Tippi Hedren, Jennifer O’Neill, Carol Channing, Steve Railsback, and many dozens of other industry leaders – many of whom he has now become personal friends with.
