MBC needs a videographer: Calling all amateur photographers and videographers
Medway Community Access & Media was nice enough to attend our January meeting and video tape it for broadcast on local access. While Medway Community Access is glad to lend out the equipment for MBC to tape future meeting presentations for benefit of the community, they aren’t able to provide personnel to come to meetings to actually perform the taping. According to Amy Huff, MCAM Marketing Coordinator, anyone who is an amateur photographer often finds it very comfortable to learn the equipment.
With this in mind, MBC is looking for anyone in the community who would be willing to attend MBC events and be our videographer. If you’re someone that would like to volunteer, but is more of a behind the scenes type person, this is a great way to give back to the community by helping MBC. All that is required is:
- Getting some brief instruction on camera operation from MCAM
- Picking up the camera before an event.
- Taping the event, which is basically filmed from a tripod so it’s basically start and stop once you get the camera set up.
- Return the camera and video to MCAM, who will take it from there.
MCAM is offering a Pizza & Portable Camera Workshop on Tuesday, May 3, from 6pm-7:30pm. This hands-on class provides an overview of their Portable Video Cameras including camera & tripod setup, audio, and proper framing and zooming techniques used while recording your event. Enjoy pizza and salad while you set up the camera, tripod and practice recording video to feel comfortable using the equipment.
If you’d like to volunteer, please contact Wayne Texeira at firstname.lastname@example.org.
