The cameras at NWCT
In May of 2011, MAS member Rita Fox, who is trained at her local CATV channel, offered to assist in the creation of video showcases that can be aired on public-access channels locally, regionally and nationally. We are currently taping individual sets of 5 to 10 songs by MAS members in monthly sessions at NWCT studios (6900 Winnetka Avenue North, Brooklyn Park). All songs from the monthly taping sessions are placed in a pool of music from which Rita can draw to edit into each episode. The format of those episodes typically consists of 6 to 8 members performing one of the songs captured at their taping session.
We originally planned a specific number of 30-minute programs for CATV channels; however, with new-member and "return appearance" sessions, we see no end to this project. We have original-music programming ready for use by CATV program directors anywhere in America. Members who are taped receive free electronic video copies of the songs we tape, which may be used/posted/shared however they see fit.
Members who are not yet signed up for this program and wish to participate should email email@example.com
Each member who participates in this program should read the document titled "Performance Prep" on our Workshops page.
