Interested in producing content, but aren't experienced with the necessary equipment?
Have a beginning or intermediate understanding, and want to kick it up to the next level? That's what ChicopeeTV is here for!
The Logical First Step, for us and you...
Community producers are required to undergo equipment training before they are allowed to check out ChicopeeTV gear*. This protects and prolongs the life of our equipment (for other community members), and empowers you to make better content.
We offer coursework in:
Field Kit Certification - How to use the camera, sound and lighting packages (that we offer community members for free checkout) to shoot stuff that looks and sounds great.
Studio Usage - How to use the ChicopeeTV studio for your future shoots. Includes cameras, lighting, switcher, sound board & server operation.
Intro to Editing - How to take the footage you’ve shot (on our equipment or your own) and put it together in something beautiful in Final Cut Pro X!
