Monday August 12th – Friday August 16th
Time: 2pm to 5pm
BCAT Video Vacation Week is a FREE video program for children entering 6th grade thru those entering 8th grade. The program is a fun, educational week for kids to learn about BCAT facilities and video production. The week’s events are coordinated by BCAT Production Coordinators Cory McNeil and Tad Stephanak who also facilitate BCAT’s middle school “Video Voyagers” program during the school year. Participants are taught proper use of video equipment, in-studio and in the field production. Video Vacation Week encourages participants to conceive and develop ideas and teaches them how to bring those ideas to life through video production. The videos are shot over the course of the week and then edited into a program shown on BCAT (Comcast 9, Verizon 39, RCN 3), BCAT’s website, BCAT’s YouTube channel and through BCAT’s Twitter account @bcattv. Participants work both behind the camera, taking turns as director, camera operator and crew and in front of the camera as talent. Regular support is given to all participants with a particular interest in any of aspect of video production.
Video Vacation Week will take place at the BCAT 123 Cambridge St., Burlington, MA 01803 (entrance is located in the back of Burlington High School)
