“Play to the Camera”—live on HCTV Channel 99, Postponed Until Wednesday, May 8
April 23, 2013
“Jason Davis & the New Philosophers” will take the stage at 9pm in the TV studio on the campus of Herkimer County Community College on Wednesday, May 8. Students enrolled in various media degree programs at HCCC will produce “Play to the Camera” live on HCTV channel 99.
The program has been rescheduled from Thursday, April 25 to Wednesday, May 8. Instructor of Radio-Television Broadcasting Douglas Flanagan says that the program is truly a cooperative effort. Jason Davis is the Instructor of Music Industry at HCCC, and the crew will consist of students in the various media programs including Radio-Television Broadcasting, Music Industry, Digital Filmmaking, and Communication Arts: New Media.
Flanagan says that “Play to the Camera” not only offers HCCC musicians a chance to perform on live television, but it also gives other media degree students experience in studio based video production. Students will be operating the studio cameras, video switcher, graphics systems, teleprompter, audio boards, and video server systems.
A live studio audience is needed. Interested audience members will be part of the live telecast. Seating is limited and will be offered on a first come-first served basis. Audience seating will open at approximately 8:30pm in the TV studio, room TC109.
Jason Davis, Assistant Professor of Music Industry at HCCC, said “Play to the Camera” is “a good cross pollination of music and media at HCCC. It covers it all “live sound, pre-production, promotion, and performance.” This is the fourth production, since the fall of 2012, of “Play to the Camera.”
The entire program will also be recorded live into HCCC’s Pro Tools and Avid Media Composer editing systems for later post-production. It will be uploaded to the HCCC Radio-Television YouTube channel and it will also run in encore presentations on HCTV Channel 99.
