MCTV Expands Festival Coverage

July 20, 2010

For years, MCTV has used three cameras to record the Festival on the Green broadcast, but this year we added a fourth camera! You might have noticed it on the right side of the stage, and you’ll see footage from the performances in which the performers are silhouetted against the stage lights — with the audience in the background. Maybe you’ll catch a glimpse of yourself, your friends, or your family. We’re excited about the additional camera and the 360 degrees of coverage we can now record. Thanks to Fred Thodal for technical assistance with setting up the new camera.

Intergallactic Comedy/Adventure Coming Soon!

July 6, 2010

The students in MCTV’s Lights, Camera, Action II (LCA II) class are going into production on a new short film that will follow aliens, astronauts, and earthlings through a day of adventure and intergallactic travel. Look for it soon on METV!

LCA II is a new workshop that builds upon skills students learned in LCA I. In this new class, the students take charge directing, shooting, and writing a short film — as well as running the set themselves and developing brainstorming and negotiating skills. Teachers Heath Rumble and Nikki Morse offer guidance, but ultimately the decisions are made by the students themselves. This week the students are focusing on special effects, planning to use green screen technology to create the interstellar world of the film.
