It's a wrap!

We closed down the summer with a phenomenal group of students from Trenton, Princeton, and Willingboro High School Making Visions Possible program who participated in our Sports Media Program.

With the engaging hands-on instruction of Executive Producer Leontyne Anglin, the students worked together to develop original show ideas, conducted interviews with the special guests, created a production schedule, and taped 3 LIVE segments in the studio!

All students received certificates and their own personal autographed photo of Former Philadelphia Eagle Reggie "Truck" Brown.

Thanks to MVP Program Director Greg Smith, Guest Facilitators Olena Feltes, Reggie Brown, and Princeton Community Television for providing the great venue.

BE wraps up with another group of awesome students  

We wrapped our Spring 2015 series with awesome students that joined our Television Studio Production classes and Speedcrewing Workshops. They range in age from 10 - 18 years old enabling opportunities for the older students to gain peer leadership experience.

We jumped right in with basic media terminology -- assigning different studio crew assignments from producer to floor manager to enhance their communication skills and begin to understand the importance of collaboration.

It's always amazing when we start to uncover the wealth of hidden talents in young people. We can already see the makings of success on the horizon in this class, too!

Thanks to John Kuiphoff, The College of New Jersey Chair of Interactive Media, for leading our students in an awesome afternoon of programming, coding, and fun! In addition to learning the basics of code, they were introduced to some of the trends in the digital media space including an exploration of  Virtual Reality.

The students wrapped the day with Michael Smith, KidzBeatz Audio Engineer, in a recording studio learning about Audio Production ... and even created their own original track.

And of course, a couple of students were able to lend a hand with our crew capturing footage from the day...

Another awesome collaboration with TCNJ and the Bonner Center

December 3 -- "Fans and students of popular culture are familiar with many of the big music acts of the 1960s and 70s, such as Gladys Knight and the Pips, Labelle and Kool and the Gang. But what's less known is that many of the artists, producers, backup musicians and engineers behind this iconic music came from Trenton and its surrounding communities."

The College of New Jersey Bonner Center, students from Dr. Kim Pearson's Interactive Media class, and Beyond Expectations entered into an exciting collaboration to help capture their significant contributions and bring their stories to life. The multimedia project involved archival research, oral history interviews and extensive secondary research.

On Wednesday, December 3, the project culminated at the Conservatory Mansion in downtown Trenton as the students presented their multimedia website and new Trenton Music History app!
