Students can get the edge in video production at this year's TV30 Summer Camp, being held for the 11th year.
"This is the original and only video camp available locally that provides students with a real-life experience in a working television station," said Melissa Tench-Stevens, executive director at TV30.
The camp is held at the TV30 studio and is aimed at students in grades six to 12 who are thinking of a career in video or television production, giving them an overall picture of the process. The two camp sessions, each 20 hours long, include an introduction to studio production, field production, writing, producing and digital video editing.
"The campers work with our staff and learn to use the professional equipment," Tench-Stevens said. "The campers produce a TV program that will be broadcast on TV30 and can be seen via Comcast, AT&T U-Verse and all over the world on our website."
The camp sessions run June 10-14 and June 24-28, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. each day. The fee is $558 per camper, and registration is limited. For more information, visit tv30.org or call the station at 462-3030.
