The CAPS Media Crew captured all of the festivities in the 2017 Ventura County Fair Parade. Grand Marshal Edgar Terry of Terry Farms led a dazzling display of marching bands, floats, horses, vintage cars, tractors, clowns, city and county representatives, queens, princesses, celebrities, and other fair folks filling Main Street for the annual event. With Tim O’Neil and Jerry Breiner calling the play-by-play, CAPS Media’s live coverage of the parade aired live on CAPS Media Channel 6 and live streamed on capsmedia.org. The parade has been rebroadcast and streamed multiple times and you can view the event online at capsmedia.org/videos.
Recently CAPS Media produced the first in a series of Measure O video messages to highlight the projects and programs being supported by the successful initiative. Mayor Erik Nasarenko hosted the video at Fire Station 4. Thanks in part to Measure O funding, Fire Station 4 will continue to provide vital services to the east side of the Ventura community. CAPS Media is also working with city departments to produce additional stories of interest for airing on the channel, website and social media in the next few months. And CAPS Media is pleased to be a creative partner with the Museum of Ventura County to help with the revitalization and storytelling of the historic and valuable resources in Ventura and Santa Paula.
The new school year is also a good time to become a Member/Producer at CAPS Media. Every month CAPS Media offers new member orientation meetings on the first Thursday. HD videography/camera classes are held on the 2nd Thursday and Final Cut postproduction editing classes are on the 3rd Thursday. The next CAPS Radio (KPPQ, FM 104.1) training is on the 4th week: Wednesday and Thursday, August 23 & 24. Every class is fun, informative and engaging. Member/Producers receive hands-on instruction in videography, video editing, radio production and more. All classes begin at 6pm at the CAPS Media Center, 65 Day Road. Once trained member/producers may check out CAPS Media’s video cameras, tripods, audio gear and other production equipment to record their story and then book postproduction editing suites to craft the story they want to tell.
