The Staff at Holliston Cable Access Television  set up a display in the High School hallway and invited incoming Freshmen students into the station during the 9th Grade orientation this week.

Staff at Holliston Cable Access Television  set up a display in the High School hallway and invited incoming Freshmen students into the station during the 9th Grade orientation this week. 

Staff also installed a large monitor with a camera pointing down the hallway so the students could see themselves on-camera as they approached. There was another smaller monitor on a table playing a video loop of HCAT's most recent promotional messages for several shows produced by the volunteers and studio professionals. 

On another table, HCAT provided informational brochures and business cards along with some trinkets to take away. 

When students entered the TV station, they stepped onto the set where one of the studio cameras showed their images on a monitor. They were shown around the station to learn about what it takes to produce a show. Some of the students sat at the 'switchers" where they had a chance to be guest directors.  

Each year, Holliston HIgh School offers a course on video production and media, and students get to work in the studio and use the first-class equipment installed there. The station is not part of the school system. It is an independent non-profit, but studio professionals work with the classroom teacher to provide the students hands-on experience in operating cameras, doing editing, producing videos, and much more

If students at the High School are interested in this field, HCAT offers a unique opportunity to work in a studio on equipment that is equivalent to commercial channels in Boston and to gather material for their own portfolios and for college applications.
