Home » JANUARY 2021 Newsletter
This last month we have been in full work- from-home mode. All productions and government meetings have been done over zoom. It has been very successful and COVID safe.
MVTV is starting to use a new software called Cinamaker which gives us the opportunity to have our members do a complete production on their own over the same network. Great for kids and household members to come together and make something incredible.
We are testing and preparing for high school sports to start up this month. Our plan is to stream the games over YouTube and MVTV’s Channel 14.
Shows can now be taped via Zoom OR in the studio:
Safety guidelines for the studio:
* chairs will remain 6 ft apart on stage.
* talent will mic themselves
* guests must go directly in and out of the studio, checking temp, and signing in and out at the front desk.
* masks stay on up until the beginning of production
* 3 people allowed in studio (host and two guests)
Call Kelly at 508-696-9760 for an appointment.
Happy New Year! Our collaborations continue with students of MVRHS, The ASALH Organization, The Polar Bears of The Inkwell, and others. Our members are also creating new content.
The holiday season is finished but you can still enjoy our island community singing many chorals on our website at mvtv.org!
We are also very excited to put into motion our video podcast! The equipment will be arriving soon! Look forward to your invitation to be a part of it!
Please stay safe and create media!
Classes are available in Orientation, camera use, and in video editing using Adobe Premier Pro.
Contact Michelle to make an appointment for a class:
The MVTV Board met via Zoom at 1:30 Tuesday Jan 5th. Stephen reported that while MVTV is closed and staff are working from home, he is in the building during business days, and also reported that the studio is available, with COVID restrictions in place. New equipment purchases were discussed.
