Sure, a modern day Wayne and Garth could’ve Youtubed themselves to internet sensationhood (what was the schwing if not a proto “Like” button?) outside of Aurora. But there’s still something alluring about having an actual local teevee show, in the same way that being published in a lit mag might outrank your daily Tumblr ramblings. Did you know our local cable access station — Brooklyn Center for Media Education (part of BRIC Arts Media) — offers studio facilities that are free to use after you complete a production workshop? Before you start writing a script and picking out background ferns, you have to check out the free orientation: the next one is on Aug. 6.
BCAT says: “You’ll learn about the opportunities available at BCAT’s Brooklyn Center for Media Education and review the requirements necessary to air a program on BCAT TV Network. No reservations necessary. Seats available on a first-come, first-serve basis and it’s free. For more information visit bricartsmedia.org/bcme.”
The free orientation is at 11am at the station’s interim location at 242 3rd St.. The production course you have to sign up for before producing a show is $98. But maybe you can get Noah’s Arcade to sponsor you?
