As an organization, NewTV is always working to provide the best experiences and opportunities for our members to enhance member engagement. But did you know that there are also groups working to provide the best experiences and opportunities for community media centers? There are two major groups like this in our area, one of which is MassAccess.

Behind the Scenes of Podcasting at NewTV

If you’ve been following what’s going on at NewTV, hopefully you know that we are introducing podcasting. This February, we will be offering the first Introduction to Podcasting class for a one-time discounted rate of $50. Once members are certified on the equipment, they can start producing podcasts at NewTV. We are so excited to bring this new feature to our members as we continue to adapt to the current media landscape.

Everyday, 10,000 people in the United States turn 65 years old. Record numbers are showing that we are living longer than ever before in human history. For instance, if you live to be 65, you are quite likely to live another 20 years to celebrate your 85th. This cohort is growing at a faster rate than any other group. At this rate, the senior population is going to increase from approximately 20% to more than 26%. Not only are people living much longer, but generally, they want to age in place: they want to stay in their homes or in their home communities rather than in a long-term care facility.

Producing to the Maxx

NewTV’s Production Services Department has been producing up a storm with The TJX Corporation for their internal State of the Company meetings. Both Ellen and Noreen produced and supervised shoots as well as postproduction to include editorial, effects, and sound mixing for TJ Maxx/Marshalls and TJX Corporate. Production Services teamed with Framed Up Director Bill Cuccinello and National Video's senior After Effects editor Steve Ball to create fun and engaging videos featuring interacting icons with their employees. Our own Curry College intern Maggie McGinnis joined us as a Production Assistant. Maggie attended the early morning shoots and edits. She got to see first hand how a full-on video production is created saying, “I was very surprised at how quickly scripts changed on the set.”
