Have fun. Learn something. Do the community a service.
Community Event Coverage
There is so much going on in Easton in a given weekend it's hard to keep up. Help us document and share these events by taking out a camera and recording an event, a concert, a sporting event or lecture and help keep the community connected.
What happens after the camera stops shooting? Non linear editing is the term used for all the work that is done with a video after it has been shot. ECAT has a number of systems with Adobe Creative Cloud and Final Cut X. Editors can assist with piecing together existing shows and or other events that have been taped that need trimming. Non linear editing is a great skill to have in the digital media landscape and ECAT offers the training for free.
Studio TV Crew
Creating TV is a team effort. Every production needs people behind the camera and in the control room directing, doing graphics and audio. Not to mention the talent needed in front of the screen. Helping out as a crew member provides terrific experience in TV production and is really fun, too.
