How long have you been a member? Terry taught my class in studio production in the fall of 1991, I believe. So that’s 25 years?

What do you use the media center for?
First, I really value being able to borrow equipment for our field work. Lights, microphones, audio recorders, cameras, and even a really solid tripod are things that really make the difference in the quality of production. Could we just use my phone and record in 4K? Sure. But correcting the image and audio is tedious. Secondly, we sometimes use Studio A for cutaway shots, and Studio B for recording voiceovers. Thirdly, the Media Center is our fiscal sponsor when it comes time to apply for grants that need a non-profit entity to disburse funds to. And lastly, it’s just a great place to meet other creative people, talk about ideas and quickly solve technical issues that arise.
What are you currently working on? As part of our adventure/travel series, Hit and Run History, we’re in post production for Stephano: The True Story of Shakespeare’s Shipwreck. That follows the 17th century adventures of Stephen Hopkins, from his humble beginnings in the English countryside to life as a castaway on Bermuda, meeting Pocahontas in Jamestown, and then as a Mayflower passenger just up the road in Plymouth. It’s the first joint production of the Cape Cod Community Media Center and Rhode Island PBS. Once we premiere it there, we plan to offer it to other PBS stations nationwide. We shot on location in England, Bermuda, Virginia, and here on the Cape.
What should our community know about the Media Center? That while there is a lot to learn here, you don’t have to learn everything. Once you get the basics down, you can specialize in what appeals to you. Producing in the studio, working a camera out in the field, editing video and laying in a soundtrack. All of those are very important roles, and each are creative in their own way. You can do as little or as much as you want, but the tools and expertise are made available to you and it’s an unbeatable bargain.
