Cooling off and gearing up

There’s always something new happening at the CAPS Media Center.

Every month CAPS Media offers new member orientation meetings on the first Thursday at 6pm. The orientation includes a tour of the CAPS Media Center, a presentation by a CAPS Media staff member and an open Q&A. For CAPS Media Member/Producers instructional classes are scheduled every month. The HD videography/camera classes are held on 2nd Thursday, Final Cut postproduction editing classes are on the 3rd Thursday, and CAPS Radio (KPPQ, FM 104.1) training is on the 4th Wednesday and Thursday of the month. 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.

CAPS is pleased to be working with the Ventura City and County Fire Departments and we appreciate all of their hard work in keeping citizens safe throughout the country.

The ECTV students, over a dozen of them, are back at CAPS Media Center. Phil Taggart, supervising educator, is running the students through their paces. They are researching, contacting talent, fine tuning their scripts and getting the practical training necessary for producing excellent video programming and new this year, radio shows. This year should be a great one. The kids are ready. We are too.
