Community News for Framingham
If you have ever wanted to learn about television news, or how to produce stories for newscasts and longer-form magazine shows, FPAC invites you to be part of a brand new, Framingham-focused series. This spring, FPAC will be unveiling a new initiative to provide a regularly scheduled news magazine program to our viewers. Each program will be produced and coordinated by our staff, but will rely on the talents and efforts of FPAC members and interns who can act as reporters, shooters, segment producers, and other vital roles. We envision this program providing a wide variety of stories and features focusing on various events and issues of concern to folks here in Framingham… stories told with visual impact, insight, and objectivity.
With that in mind, we’ll be holding a news production workshop series in May in which we will teach students the basics of how to report, shoot and produce packages for television news. Whether you are interested in covering community events, creating a segment on arts or dining, or doing a series of reports on an important town-wide issue, this workshop will give you the basic skills to get started.
The three-session workshop will start Thursday, May 5th from 7pm to 9pm, and will continue for the next two Thursday evenings (the 12th and 19th.)
During the course of this workshop each participant will be working on news/feature packages that will be included in the premiere edition of FPAC’s new series, which will be produced on Wednesday, May 25th. If you are interested in getting involved with this effort, please call the studio at 508-875-5434, or email us at [email protected].
