Lots of things are springing anew at CAPS Media this month! Out with the old and in with the shiny new HD cameras! At CAPS Media we’re saying goodbye to the old SD cameras that have long served CAPS members in our studio and bringing in HD cameras and upgraded equipment. Although the studio will be shut down for upgrades for the month of February, we’re still lending cameras and equipment. Come back in March to check out the new studio!

Also coming up in March are our regularly scheduled classes. Become a member this month, when you take the March Orientation Class, happening Thursday, March 2, 2017 at 6:00 PM. We will also be offering HD Camera Class on Thursday, March 9, 2017 at 6:00 PM and Final Cut X Edit Class on Thursday, March 16, 2017 at 6:00 PM. Once the studio is up and running we will schedule studio classes – a 2 session course on Saturdays. More information can be found at http://www.capsmedia.org/events. Registration begins March 1st.

As we do every year, we’ll be covering the St. Patrick’s Day parade live from Main Street on March 11 at 10am with our hosts, Tim O’Neil and Jerry Breiner. If you can’t make it to the parade, tune in and enjoy the festivities from home or your mobile device!

CAPS Media has 6 video programs that are finalists in the the Alliance of Community Media West’s 2017 Western Access Video Excellence (WAVE) Awards and winners will be announced in March. ACMW’s Mission is to promote civic engagement through community media and CAPS Media could not be happier to have these programs nominated. We’ll keep you posted on the results.
