Avid Technology Presents
NY Insiders Series
July 26, 2006 at Tribeca Performing Arts Center/BMCC

The July 26 th event will be the kick-off event for the NY series which is an extension to what we have been doing in LA for the past two years. Once a quarter we present on topics that are of greatest interest to the film or video program creator. The series was developed to not be sales and/or marketing, but as an outreach from the editors and product designers from within Avid to speak directly to the users themselves. Topics in the past have covered HD workflows, 23.976 versus 24, Interplay and WAN collaboration, P2 and XDCAM workflows, ScriptSync, etc. We want to be able to find a consistent home to the NY Insider series as we did in LA.

BMCC On Air: HD News Programming begins at Home
Are You the Next OPRAH?

BMCC has it's own TV show, and your can be a part of it. BMCC OnAir will begin shooting a second season this semester. If you think you are the next Oprah, or you want to be involved in live TV, this is a great opportunity for you.

Professional TV producer/editor Howard Ellis will guide students through the exciting process of creating programming in the brand new HD TV studio at the Media Center. The "crew" consists of interns from the VAT, MMV, and THE programs. Students will write, direct, and produce all technical aspects of the programs. The first shows should appear on the hallway monitors around the end of February 2007.
This project is made possible with funds from the NSF ATE grant and is intended to give students "real-life" exposure to the challenges of producing HD video using state-of-the-art equipment while meeting real production deadlines. The program was developed by VAT with the cooperation and talents of Prof. Jon Dash (CED) and Prof. Diane Dowling (THE). The project to upgrade the BMCC Media Center to an HD facility has been underway for more than a year. Director John Gallager and his staff are working with Mr. Ellis to get Studio B into ship-shape for this project.

Students who wish to be interns and work on the show should be eligible to complete an internship in VAT, MMV, or THE in the upcoming semester. THE students should see Prof. Dowling. VAT and MMV students should contact Prof. Dash well before the beginning of the semester and plan to register for the appropriate CED course.
