Check out all of our new classes available here!
We have added more classes based on your feedback! Do you own a mac computer? Have you noticed that it has iMovie on it but you just can't figure it out? Well we can help you with that if you take our new Intro to Basic Field Production class. There are more changes to come so stay tuned and keep watching!
It's that time of the year again!
The holidays are over. We have reopened, with our normal hours, and you are probably back to work/school, or about to head back to college. Before you start stressing over all of the work you have to catch up on now that the holidays are over, come spend time with the fun members of CCTV at our Annual Meeting!
This year we will be holding the usual business meeting complete with yearly update, board member information, and awards for Producer and Volunteer of the year. But we have added a little component of fun...
Ever wondered what those weird things mounted on the studio cameras are? Those are Teleprompters, like the ones news anchors and award show hosts use. Do you want to learn how to use one to enhance your show or maybe just play with one to say that you have? We are holding a mini-workshop on our studio teleprompters that evening as well!
The Annual Meeting / Teleprompter Workshop will be held on:
Thursday, January 12th at the CCTV Studio. We will begin the festivities at 7pm.
Did I mention that there will be food? Because there will be food.
So, whether you are a current CCTV member, or just wondering what CCTV is all about, come down to the CCTV Studio, meet some amazing people (Not just the cool staff) and play with technology that is unique to a TV studio!
Again, the Annual Meeting of CCTV will be Thursday, January 12th at 7pm in the CCTV Studio.
If you have any questions, comments or concerns please contact us at the studio: 978-369-5038.
