ActonTV Offers Free March TV Workshops

 March 19 / 21 / 26 / 28 at South Acton TV Studio

You've seen the shows, but have you ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes that makes a successful TV production?

Well, here's your chance. ActonTV today announced the March 2013 schedule of its free 4-session “Television Production Workshops” for residents of Acton as well as members of organizations and institutions working in Acton or affiliated to the town.

The workshops will be held from 7-9 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday evenings March 19, 21, 26 and 28 in the ActonTV studio located at 16A Craig Road in South Acton.

Want to know more? Those interested in signing up for these workshops and classes should contact ActonTV’s Education & Outreach Manager Ron Zimmerman at 978-263-6033 or by email at ron.zimmerman@actontv.org.

 “These free monthly TV workshops continue to have great appeal, and we encourage anyone interested to sign up immediately to reserve a spot in the next set of classes to be held in our fully equipped television studio, Zimmerman said in a release.”

The March course will cover camera operation, directing, lighting, audio, editing, field production and other aspects of TV program production:

  • Session 1 (Tuesday, March 19) — introduction to community television and studio production techniques.
  • Session 2 (Thursday, March 21) —  audio & single camera field production.
  • Session 3 (Tuesday, March 26) — lighting & directing for television.
  • Session 4 (Thursday, March 28) — non-linear editing techniques.

Once you've completed the workshop, you will be able to use the new ActonTV television studio and its equipment to produce your own TV programs, or cover meetings and events in town for telecast on ActonTV’s local access channels. In addition, they will be qualified to help other producers or members of the ActonTV staff with studio and field camera shoots.
