Thirteen campers from Danville, Dublin, Livermore, Pleasanton and San Ramon took over the studios of Tri-Valley Community TV on Bernal Avenue in Pleasanton while they participated in the five-day camp. The result is the special one-hour show.
"'Tri-Valley Youth View' was written and produced by the middle and high school students," said Melissa Tench-Stevens, executive director of TVCTV. "They researched and wrote questions, acted as crew for all the production positions, and were talent for the program."
This year, for the third summer, the community TV station offered two sessions of the camp. Under the direction of Camp Director Mitch Eason, the hands-on TV Camp provided an introduction to the technical and talent aspects of studio and field production, writing, producing and digital video editing.
Guests also include Cat Taylor, a naturalist at the East Bay Regional Park District; Jeff Cohen, inventor of Voyage Air, a folding guitar seen on "Shark Tank"; Joelle Cook and Linda McKeever from Open Heart Kitchen; and Holly Stower from Children of the American Revolution.
"Tri-Valley Youth View" can be seen starting this Friday at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. on TV 30 and Monday at 5 p.m. on TV 28 via Comcast and on AT&T U-Verse TV via Channel 99.
