Questions: call 617-661-6900 or email Allison at: allison@cctvcambridge.org


In addition to the special, we'd like to tell you about what is coming up in the next few weeks!


Upcoming classes in April include:

A brand new exciting production class called "Capturing the Real: Observational Documentary" taught by Jennifer Kelley and starting on Tuesday, 4/22. This class will teach you how to create a short documentary video that relies on observation based skills rather than formal interviews/voice-over narration to drive the story. The idea is to find a really interesting topic that tells its own story, and to let events unfold in front of the camera. By the end of the class you will have produced a short piece on your own (or with a classmate if you choose) in this style.

We also have some exciting web based classes in April, including Building Websites with WIX (4/30), a very user friendly platform for creating your next website - considered easier than wordpress and taught in a single session, and Video Portfolios (starts 4/24), a class which will teach you how to build a professional portfolio of your work online that you could use for job/grant/school applications or to simply advertise yourself as a producer/artist/freelancer.

We have two studio based classes in CCTV's upgraded HD studio this April. An Inscriber class starting on the 4/16, this teaches you the software program utilized in CCTV's large production studio to create professional looking graphics and animations for your show, and a Video Switcher Crash Course (starts 4/28) for anyone who was familiar with the old studio but needs to be trained on the new video switcher.

If you are interested in seminar classes, we have a single session class exploring Coming of Age Narratives in Film (4/15), which will provide a brief history as well as look at the common story elements, styles, and structure of teen film. It's a fun class for those who are curious or interested in producing narrative work.

We also have Edit II coming up starting 04/27. If you haven't gotten the opportunity to take this class yet, here is your chance. It won't be offered again until summer. We also are offering all the basics, which if you haven't taken are a fantastic place to start: Field Camera I (4/14) and Audio 101 (4/17). You have already missed Edit I: Beginning Final Cut Pro X for April, but another class will run in May starting on Tuesday the 6th.

If you have not yet turned in your first CCTV certification project, and need help finishing up, sign up for our Edit I Certification Workshop single-session class on April 24th. Garabed Setrakian will help you finish up your project, and when you turn it in you will be reimbursed for the class!

If you have any questions, please feel free to call the front desk at 617-661-6900 or contact Allison: allison@cctvcambridge.org or 617-401-4009

"Cambridge Uncovered" premieres tonight at 6 on CCTV Ch. 9

CCTV - Fri, 04/11/2014 - 10:34am

Starting tonight, Cambridge cable subscribers can turn to Cambridge Community Television Channel 9 to watch a new hour-long public affairs program exploring issues pertinent to the local community. The first episode of Cambridge Uncovered, produced by NeighborMedia citizen journalists and the crew of CCTV's Production Department, premieres Friday, April 11 at 6 p.m.

Delving into the Cambridge arts scene, the first episode was produced by NeighborMedia correspondents Siobhan Bredin and Beverly Mire. During the first half-hour, Bredin speaks with Peter DiMuro, director of the Dance Complex, about this exciting performance arts center in the heart of Central Square. In the second half half-hour, Mire speaks with two students in CCTV’s Youth Media Program who are creating media about issues affecting area teens.

While CCTV staff helps coordinate and facilitate the production, the topics and guests for each episode are chosen by NeighborMedia citizen journalists. These volunteer reporters team up with members of CCTV's Production Crew, who use their skills shooting the episode in CCTV’s recently upgraded HD studio, and producing roll-in videos to accompany each segment. Episode 1's production group included talented volunteer crew members, Rocco Calvi, Anjan Biswas, Erik Brown, Sahar Hakim-Hashemi and Maria Boykova.

"Being involved in larger scale, thematic projects, such as Cambridge Uncovered, generates enthusiasm among CCTV members who normally may have not have gotten involved in production," said Shirin Mozafarri, CCTV's production coordinator. "The members of the group go on to become confident producers with valuable skills both in production and collaborative work."

Frank Morris, coordinator of NeighborMedia at CCTV, said the series is planned to be a quarterly program, but with increased interest and involvement, the public affairs show may be produced on a more regular basis.

“The purpose of the show is really three-fold,” Morris said. “First, it serves as a tool for educating and informing the people of Cambridge on matters important to them. Second, it’s an outlet to showcase the journalistic talents of our NeighborMedia reporters and to give them a new platform in which to uncover and report on local issues. Third, it’s a way to keep CCTV members and interns, who are interested in production, engaged by being involved in an exciting studio shoot.”

Cambridge Uncovered, Episode 1: "Arts for the Ages" Showtimes

CCTV Cambridge Channel 9:

  • Fridays, 6 to 7 p.m., April 11 to May 2
  • Saturdays, 8 to 9 p.m., April 12 to May 3
  • Sundays, noon to 1 p.m., April 13 to May 4

The next episode of Cambridge Uncovered is already being planned. Produced by NeighborMedia correspondent Maurice Wilkey, the show will focus on men’s health and racial disparities in Cambridge. It’s scheduled to be recorded in June and shown on CCTV’s channels this summer.

About CCTV Production Groups:
CCTV production groups create opportunities for members to gain hands-on media making experience. CCTV facilitates these groups so members can get to know each other, brainstorm ideas and and create collaborative bonds. Cambridge Uncovered, a studio-focused production group, trained new members in various aspects of studio production prior and during the shoot. The efforts of the members involved in group were supported by the Production Department from conception to completion.

About NeighborMedia:
NeighborMedia, now in its seventh year, is the citizen journalism program of CCTV that trains Cambridge residents to report on the people, places, issues and events of their very own neighborhoods. The team is made up of nearly two dozen nonprofessional reporters who commit to producing two written stories – or one video piece – a month for NeighborMedia.org. In exchange, they receive a free membership to CCTV, granting them full access to CCTV’s classes, equipment and facilities.

NeighborMedia is currently looking to expand its team. Cambridge residents can visit the NeighborMedia web site for information and to apply. Emails inquiring about the program can be sent to frank@cctvcambridge.org.

You can follow NeighborMedia on Facebook and Twitter to receive all the latest Cambridge news you won't find anywhere else delivered straight to your news feed. NeighborMedia.org - we've got Cambridge covered.

Why I Love CCTV: Michael Koran's Story

CCTV - Mon, 04/07/2014 - 4:05pm

Meet Michael Koran, an average individual who strives to become a better person as each day progresses. Among the things he enjoys: becoming acquainted with different types of people. That’s part of the reason he’s been actively involved with Cambridge Community Television for 15 years.

The native New Yorker-turned-Cambridge resident hosts his own weekly show, “A Human Among Humans” (“AHAH” for short), which can be seen at 7 p.m. Sundays on CCTV Channel 9. It’s part of CCTV’s “BeLive” series, which allows any Cambridge resident the chance to speak their mind or move the masses for 27 minutes at a time.

The goal of Koran’s show, he said, is to promote self-improvement and how to have a positive spirit. “I want to learn how to be a better human being. This is what inspired me to do the show."

AHAH comprises various topics centered on enhancing one’s lifestyle and living life to the fullest. He’ll often bring on special guests, all from different and unique backgrounds. Once, he brought on a friend who taught Koran and the audience a few happy dance moves. His guest for April 13 will be a waitress. “I love the freedom to meet different guests and get to know people that I might run into in Cambridge.”

During Koran’s show, the Catholic convert (he was born into a Jewish household) focuses on spirituality and all things positive. He avoids negative or controversial subject matters, and focuses on equality and humanity by being optimistic and giving individuals a chance to be heard and be seen on public TV.

After more than a dozen years at CCTV, Koran still feels inspired to contribute to the program. “I love coming into contact with new people because everyone has a unique experience that allows them to be distinguished from others. I believe anyone can inspire people through their stories and knowledge,” the long-time BeLive host said.

Koran credits his upbringing at an early age as having a profound impact on him being able to play an important role at CCTV and within the Cambridge community. “My daily experience plays a part in trying to learn how to be a human being," he said.

Koran represents a positive light, and he’s able to do so through his involvement at CCTV. He is hard-working and dedicated to being a vital role in the community, as exemplified in his commitment to his BeLive program and the topic which it entails.

Any Cambridge resident can host their own BeLive show, as a matter of fact, about any topic of their choosing! For more information on how to do so, visit http://www.cctvcambridge.org/submit, and to see available timeslots, click on the latest Programming Highlights.

Do you want to change the way people think about an issue? Do you want to educate the Cambridge audience about your organization's work?

PSAs are shown on CCTV's three cable channels, and have the potential of reaching more than 33,000 households! In addition, PSAs can be submitted to other television stations, uploaded to your organization's website, or used for any other public relations projects.

The registration fee is $75 for non-CCTV members. A discounted rate of $50 is available to organizations that are CCTV members. Read about the benefits of Organizational Membership here. To become an organizational member, please complete this form.

After the recording appointment, CCTV staff will work on post-production for all PSAs and deliver high definition, broadcast quality copies of your new PSA. We can feature your organization's logo and up to 2 photos in the PSA.

Do You Need Help Preparing your PSA?

Each year, we offer a free one-hour workshop to provide organizations participating in PSA Day with tips about how to develop an effective PSA.
