Public access for Jericho, Richmond,
                       Underhill and beyond

                      February 2016




#1. Out of Civic Duty

March 1st, Town Meeting Day, will find MMCTV recording Jericho, Underhill and Richmond meetings, as well as doing public outreach. This year it's Richmond's turn to have its town meeting streamed live on MMCTV. You can also catch that meeting and the previous evening's info session live at our Livestream site.

Ahead of the elections, we've welcomed local candidates into the studio to record messages to the public, including Bard Hill, Steve May and Linda Parent from Richmond and Kurt Johnson and Craig Lassiter of Underhill.

#2. For the Love of Learning

Our upcoming February break Love Your Library TV Workshop, in conjunction with the Richmond Free Library, is one example of how we work with local youngsters. We're delighted that several of our summer campers will be back, as well as instructor extraordinaire Kim Villemaire.

MMCTV provides video production training to people of all ages. Stop by the station most days and you'll see us filming and editing side-by-side with community producers.


 Local filmmakers of all ages are invited to take part in the VAN Video Challenge, a state-wide video competion organized by the Vermont Access Network, an association of the state's lively community of 26 access centers.
If you'd like to take part, come to MMCTV on March 21st to register and receive the top secret elements (a quote, two objects, a genre) that you must include in your film. Our gear and resources are available to all local participants. There is a $25 registration fee. Films, due on April 1st, are limited to five minutes. Contact MMCTV for more details!

#3. To Back Local Artists

Recently, we've recorded a studio show with
Front Porch Foursome (R, top) and enjoyed the Vermont Jazz Ensemble on The Cuban Bridge.

We're looking forward to airing videos soon by Jericho musician Chanon Bernstein and a play by Theatre Mosaic Mond.

Tony Basanta's Cuban Bridge next will bring Celtic/folk group Rowan (R, bottom) into the studio on February 23rd at 6.30pm for a live performance and interview. 

We also had fun filmming neighbor Arabesque Etc's incredible Glass Slippers dance recital. Watch for it on MMCTV soon!





#4. To Spot Emerging Talent

There was a full house on January 29th for an evening devoted to artwork sponsored by the Vermont Council on the Arts  at the Waterbury State Office Complex. Among the pieces was an incredible mural by Sarah-Lee Turrat.

MMCTV is proud to be an in-kind sponsor of a documentary about the mural by up-and-coming filmmaker Bryce Douglass.
At least two years in the works, this labor of love was screened at the event and will be coming to MMCTV soon!


#5. Because The Writing's On the Wall

Stop by MMCTV to enjoy Richmond calligrapher
Chris Carfaro's exhibit, just ahead of the launch of a 10-part series of instructional videos on penmanship. He is finishing
the third and fourth episodes now. 

MMCTV will hold a reception in early March for the exhibit.
Stay tuned for details!
