Media Makers First Studio Production

What happens when people of different ages, different backgrounds and different skill sets come together for a common goal?  

You get a great program, or in the case of our Media Makers, you get 6 great programs!

CMC’s Media makers had their first studio production session last evening and it was a huge success!  

Over a dozen members were a part of the first taping of “Carroll Helping Carroll” a studio program created and produced entirely by CMC Members.

Media Makers served as directors, camera operators, audio technicians, teleprompter operators, interviewers,floor directors and content coordinators.

The team experienced all the aspects of production, including the inevitable, last minute changes, technical difficulties, and some even stepped into unfamiliar roles – on the fly. And you know what? No one missed a beat! In fact, the Media Makers were were able to produce not one, but six Carroll Helping Carroll” programs during last nights production!.  What make this even more impressive is that the Media Makers group started less than a month ago!

Last night, CMC member, Patricia Mack-Preston interviewed Charles Harrison about the work being done by the Carroll County NAACP.

But first, we turned the tables and CMC Executive Director, Richard Turner spoke with Patricia about her experience producing the documentary; “Robert Moton School – The Hope of a Community.”  Patricia’s program is airing on Channel 19 throughout the month of February.  We’ll keep you posted regarding air dates and times for the premiere episode of  “Carroll Helping Carroll.”

The name “Carroll Helping Carroll” was chosen for the program by our members, and the show is designed to give viewers insights into those individuals and organizations who are making a  difference in Carroll County. Produced in a talk show format, the program features interview segments with local non-profits or their representatives, to help build awareness and spread the word about the many diverse services available in our area.

Congratulations to all our outstanding Media Makers, interviewers and our guests:

John Carver, Dick Slechter, George Shearer, Bob Ciampaglia, Patricia Mack-Preston, Jo Israelson, Brenda Dinne, Sean Dinne, Lauren Brown, Allan Butler, Taran McNulty, Nicole “Nicki” James, Charles Harrison, Richard Turner, Madison McNulty, Tim McNulty and his wife.
