First TV show on Community TV is live!

My first TV production on Santa Cruz Community TV is live! The show is called The Santa Cruz Music Show and features the Avi Zev band. It’s a power pop band and their music is excellent.

The show had three studio cameras on tripods, and I was running around with a handheld camera. The three studio cameras were mixed live, and I edited the show afterwards to add the handheld footage. In addition, we recorded interviews with the band members and I added those in between the music. All in all, I think it was a great first effort.

Jen and I have been volunteering at Santa Cruz Community TV for over a year now. I’m certified to operate both the sound board and studio and field cameras. Jen is certified for studio and field cameras, and can also operate the teleprompter and CG machine.

Check out Santa Cruz Community TV! It’s fun, you can meet a great bunch of people, and do something to help your community.


Community TV

Last December, Jennifer and I attended the Orientation class for the Community Television of Santa Cruz County. We have learned many new things, made new friends, and have had a lot of fun.

We started with the Studio Camera Class, then the Field Camera Class. For the first couple of events, we were “shadowed” by an experienced camera operator, to make sure we understood how to operate the camera during a real show.
