CAPS Media producer caucus held

CAPS Media is hitting the streets.

The CAPS Media Crew captured the annual Ventura Unified School District Festival of Talent extravaganza at Ventura High School. The entertaining evening featured more than twenty acts including two hold-your-breath aerial acrobats suspended from the ceiling. The core of the CAPS crew are student interns in the CAPS/El Camino High School media program (ECTV.) Proceeds from the Festival of Talent support innovative classroom grants through the VEP Grants program.

Recently Producers of television and radio programs gathered at the CAPS Media Center to share ideas, resources and interests at the first in a series of producer caucus meetings. In addition to interacting with like-minded media producers, the lively and productive discussion included an open exchange of best practices, tips on production and ideas to inform the direction of CAPS Media for 2019.

CAPS Media is hitting the streets with the Ventura Police Department to produce a series of community awareness and information projects including a series of traffic safety videos. The series, hosted by Dave Curtis, a motor officer with Ventura PD, was recorded in the CAPS studio and on Ventura Avenue, Loma Vista and a residential neighborhood to provide drivers, pedestrians and bicyclists with valuable “rules of the road.”

Recently CAPS Media recorded a very special evening of Songs and Stories by legendary local musician Chris Hillman at the Museum of Ventura County. The intimate concert was in conjunction with the museum’s exhibit of Hillman’s fascinating memorabilia: Time Between. Hillman is a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and one of the creative forces behind The Byrds, The Flying Burrito Brothers and other seminal groups. The Hillman concert is airing on CAPS Media channel 6 on Wednesday, April 10 at 9:00 PM, Thursday, April 11 at 4:00 PM, Friday April 12, at 8:00 PM, and Saturday, April 13, 2019 at 3:00 PM. The recording is part of an on-going series of collaborations between the museum and CAPS Media.
