Lisa Smith (L) w/ Andrew Love
Lisa Smith is a producer, director, editor, videographer, teacher, etc. at Cape Ann TV. Lisa and Andrew Love taught Robert Sherman, producer of the new Birding Show, everything he needed to know to get his project off the ground. Lisa also directs most of the Local Music Seen with Allen Estes shows that Vickie and I co-produce with Allen (see clips from some of those shows here) including the show featuring Boston rock star Charlie Farren that premieres tonight at 6:30pm (more about that show here).
It’s a great deal. For $20 a year, Lisa and Andrew will teach you everything you need to know about video production. Plus you get the use of their studio (where we tape Local Music Seen) and equipment. (We took their equipment on the road last year for Mardi Gras at Minglewood w/ Henri Smith & Charles Neville and then for the GHS Docksiders.)
Recently Lisa shot some blizzard video and put together a wonderful dreamy piece that just makes you feel OK about all the snow and grateful to live here. Check it out:
Stage Fort Park is filling up with snow.. those snow banks will be there until May.
Just got back from snowboarding at Surf Park in Magnolia (no, we didn’t drive). Snow is sticky and boarding is a little slow. But once you make a path the speed picks up. Tomorrow at Stage Fort Park will be supah!
Check out this latest AP wire:
BOSTON (AP) — BOSTON — Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick has declared a state of emergency and banned travel on roads as of 4 p.m. as a blizzard that could bring nearly 3 feet of snow to the region began to intensify.
Patrick said as the storm gains strength it will bring ‘‘extremely dangerous conditions’’ with bands of snow dropping up to two to three inches per hour at the height of the blizzard, prompting whiteout conditions.
Patrick said the travel ban will apply statewide and bans all motor vehicle traffic until it is lifted. The ban doesn’t apply to public safety workers and utility workers.
The MBTA is canceling all services as of 3:30 p.m.
