Lunch & Learn Series:

How To Make A Movie On Your iPhone

 

Cape Ann TV’s Lunch & Learn Series continues on Wednesday, August 24th,2016 at 12pm with “How To Make A Movie On You iPhone” presented by Professional Video Producer, Ted Reed.

It used to cost thousands, if not millions of dollars to make a movie. But now the basic production tools are in the hands of millions of people. Your smart phone can capture better video than most top of the line professional cameras did only a few years ago; all you need are a few tips and a few (if any) accessories to produce a festival-ready film. Join independent producer Ted Reed for a Cape Ann TV Lunch and Learn discussion that will show you what you need to know and what works best to get high-quality video out of your iPhone. The principles are the same for almost any current smart phone; we’ll concentrate on what the iPhone can do and the free or cheap apps that will help you get your indie feature made.

 

Participants are encouraged to install the ProCam app* which we will do a quick tutorial on, but even the stock Camera app will do the trick.

 

 

Space is limited for this event; please RSVP to rtober@capeanntv.org to reserve your spot.

Congratulations to Cape Ann TV for Winning Two National Video Awards!!

Cape Ann TV reeled in two first place awards in the Hometown Media Award Contest.

The two winning videos are Gloucester’s Giant Lobster Trap Christmas Tree & Menorah, and Behind the Scenes at Gloucester Election Night 2015.

Gloucester’s Giant Lobster Trap Christmas Tree & Menorah was entered in the Access Center Professional Division and won in the Community Events-General category. The program was produced by Cape Ann TV staff members, Lisa Smith and Rebecca Tober and was narrated by Cape Ann TV intern, Jill Wach. The ten-minute video profiled the people who created the Lobster Trap Tree on Main Street and the Menorah at the Temple Ahavat Achim, and the importance of these structures to the Cape Ann community.

Behind the Scenes at Gloucester Election Night 2015 was entered in the Independent Producer division and won in the Democracy in Action category. Matt Morris created this short, two-minute video. The video creatively shows the hustle and bustle at City Hall on election night and the live election coverage by Cape Ann TV. Matt Morris won a Hometown Media Award last year for his Awesome Gloucester series. Video link to Behind the Scenes at Gloucester Election Night 2015

The Hometown Media Awards is a national contest, sponsored by the Alliance for Community Media, that honors and promotes community media and local cable programs that are distributed on community access cable television channels. Awards are presented to creative programs that address community needs, develop diverse community involvement, challenge conventional commercial television formats, and move viewers to experience television in a different way.

Cape Ann TV’s Lunch & Learn Series: Lighting for Interviews with Ted Reed

On Wednesday, April 27th from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM Cape Ann TV will be hosting a demonstration by professional video producer, Ted Reed, on how to properly light an interview. Ted will go over fundamental practices for lighting an interview to help you gain creative control over your lighting setups.

Ted will be conducting his demonstration using Cape Ann TV’s BRAND NEWlighting equipment.  Cape Ann TV recently invested in a Fillex field lighting kit with three mini-fresnel LED lights, 3 C-stands, and flag kit. “This additional lighting equipment perfectly compliments our existing equipment. Now our members will have total control over their lighting setups,” said Cape Ann TV Executive Director Erich Archer

Ted Reed Bio: Ted Reed has been writing, producing, shooting, directing, editing, (and eating, drinking  and sleeping) television and independent documentary production for decades. A longtime resident of Cape Ann, and winner of thirteen Emmy awards, Ted also taught filmmaking workshops at Tufts University, Boston University, School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Endicott College, and the Boston Film and Video Foundation. He has worked nationally and internationally on news specials, magazine shows, documentaries, webcasts and corporate films as well as hundreds of TV commercials.  “One thing I’d like to see is everyone who wants to find their inner filmmaker to go ahead and make their movie,” he says. “You can make a commercial or a feature film with your phone, so why not?” His most recent work can be seen on his website, www.tedreed.tv.

We hope you can join us on Wednesday April 27th at noon for some lunch and learning!  Space is limited for this event; please RSVP to rtober@capeanntv.org to reserve your spot!
