This Might be Your Opportunity

We'd like to take a minute, just sit right there, to tell you about a change in volunteering around here.  With apologies to Will Smith, we thought it was time to announce that we are once again able to train new volunteers during regular Greenfield Town Council and School Committee Meetings.  

As you may remember, the switch in location to Greenfield High School involved bringing together more technical elements than when local government bodies were meeting regularly in our studio.  Also, there is no control room in the cafeteria where these events are usually held.  This meant a learning curve for our staff and difficulty communicating without disrupting officials.  So, over the past few weeks, our production manager, Philippe, has been testing out a combination of pre-meeting discussions and hand signals with a friend of his and one of the teens from our recent Behind-the-Screens day.   In addition, we've discovered that background noise in the cafeteria makes it unlikely that any soft verbal communication we engage in will be heard by councilors or committee memebers.

The upshot of all this is that we no longer need only experienced volunteers to assist us with these shoots.  If you've been wanting to learn how to run a camera or operate a switcher, now's the time!  Email alicia@gctv.org to get added to our volunteer list, so that you'll be notified whenever these opportunities come up.
