Steve Says

Thank you to Ann Bassett and Bill McGrath for installing the fabulous artwork of world famous artist Henry Wo Yue-Kee. Make sure to visit MVTV and stop and enjoy Henry’s unique and beautiful paintings, on loan to MVTV for the entire summer.




Martha’s Vineyard residents Barry Rosenthal and Dick Weisberg are interviewed in this month’s MV Times, and members could learn a great deal about the advertising business by reading Geoff Currier’s excellent interview. Barry and Dick have been at the cutting edge in advertising for 25 years with their firm,B/R Ceative located in Vineyard Haven. They were responsible for launching cable channels Syfy and the Food Network as well as creating and producing local and national advertising campaigns. It’s a valuable peek into the real world of advertising by two Vineyarders at the top of their craft!



We are busier than ever!  The new Sony HXR-NX100 is being introduced to our members, and we are having very positive feedback! We also have new Canon Vixia cameras for the two weeks of Summercamp at Featherstone Center For The Arts!

We are ready for Summer!

Look for some brand new visuals in terms of digital quality!
