Pittsfield Community Television's Fall Training Series

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Pittsfield Community Television announced the start of its fourth Seasonal Training Series, marking one year since the series started, with two special media production sessions.  
Session 1, which begins Thursday, Sept. 28 at 6:00pm and runs for three consecutive weeks, focuses on the basics of how to be a producer and teaches anyone who wants to create their own content how to produce a television show in the studio, how to manage a production on-location, and how to start a radio program.  
Session 2, which begins Thursday, Oct. 26 at 6:00pm and runs for three consecutive weeks, gives novice video editors the foundations they need to use Apple's Final Cut Pro X post-production.
"This season's Training Series sessions are designed to provide a breadth of basic production skills," said Matthew Tucker, the station's Engagement & Experience Coordinator and lead educator for the series.  "These are two areas that are core to creating media content, whether at PCTV or elsewhere, but they are also some of the most mysterious.  It's our hope to dispel that mystery and enable the creation of something new and exciting to share with the people of our region."
For more information and to sign up, email Training@PittsfieldTV.org, or call Matthew Tucker, PCTV's Engagement & Experience Coordinator, at (413) 445-4234, Extension 0121.
