Davis Media Access: Studio buzzing with election season

By
From page A4 | March 26, 2014 |

The birds are singing, the bees buzzing, and the candidates, campaigning. Yes, it’s election season in Davis and for Davis Media Access that means busy times.

For this election cycle, DMA will produce “Meet the Candidates” segments for contested races in our area, including: Davis City Council; Yolo County Supervisor, 1st District; Superior Court Judge 3rd District; County Clerk-Recorder/Assessor; Superintendent of Schools, and Assembly 4th District. These statements will air on DCTV Channel 15 on the Comcast system, Menu 99 on AT&T’s U-verse system, and will be available on demand at http://dctv.davismedia.org and on YouTube. DMA will also publicize them via social media and our distribution lists.

DMA works with a variety of community organizations to record and highlight debates, forums and other elected-related information. To date, we are working with the Davis League of Women Voters, Yolo Healthy Aging Alliance and the Davis Vanguard on forums, as well as voterprep.org.
Finally, we’ll be in the studio live on election night with the most lively and local campaign analysis around.

Elsewhere in the studio: DMA tips its hat to Lin Weaver, who has served as studio host intern for DMA’s “In the Studio” series for much of the past year. Lin has a full plate these days, and will not be hosting as much in the future, though she’s not leaving altogether. We thank her for the outstanding job she’s done, producing many segments of “In the Studio” (check them out at https://tinyurl.com/oj8yhnw).
DMA is now looking for a new intern to help out in this arena. Through this three-month, unpaid internship, interns gain hands-on experience and exposure to many aspects of community television production. The intern will interview guests who have been booked for “In the Studio,” which DMA produces the program in its state-of-the-art HD television studio. The intern gains the experience of working in this studio environment; receives coaching in hosting and on-air presence; and leaves with a professional video reel.
The initial screening process is done by online video submission. For more information, please contact Jeff Shaw, DMA production manager, at 530-757-2419 ext. 14 or via [email protected]

Also airing on DCTV and available online: “How Can We Become People of Nonviolence?” John Dear suggests this requires: being nonviolent to all people, all creatures and creation; and joining the global grassroots movement of nonviolence. John Dear, SJ is a peace and nonviolence advocate, author, Jesuit priest and Nobel Peace Prize nominee. Recorded by Davis Media Access, Sunday, Feb. 9, at Davis Community Church Fellowship Hall. Co-sponsored by Davis Community Church and Cal Aggie Christian Association.

DMA recorded local youth ensemble Mariachi Puente last month. DMA commits resources to supporting local youth, youth media production, and youth culture, and we were pleased to highlight Mariachi Puente as part of this ongoing effort. https://tinyurl.com/oqqvxju

“Meet the Producers: The Goblin Song.” Alex Silva-Sadder produced and hosts this profile of DaVinci High graduate Nora Unkel and her NYU Tisch School of the Arts senior thesis film project, “The Goblin Song.” It’s being filmed locally utilizing lots of local resources and volunteers.
