Center for New Media offering free class on public access media March 10

Bellingham-area media users are invited to a free class in Video Pre-Production, Access Orientation, and iPad Journalism being offered by the Center for New Media at the Bellingham Public Library Conference Room. The next class, “Access Orientation: Rules for Use,” is being offered on March 10 at 11 a.m.

This class provides an overview of the vision, mission and services provided by Center for New Media and takes citizen media-makers through the stages in creating media for a public access platform. Community feedback and questions encouraged.

“We’re excited that access to local media distribution will be opened to individuals, non-profits and educational bodies and we want to help make sure that our community understands how to use this amazing new public resource, “ said Center for New Media Executive Director Suzanne Blais. “These classes are designed to inform and inspire potential users such as non-profit
groups who want to inform the community as to their activities and individual producers who just want an opportunity to air their work. It’s a good time for Bellingham media-makers.”

These classes are part of an effort by the Center for New Media to prepare local citizens for new cable access channels being planned for area residents.

All classes are offered at the Bellingham Public Library Conference Room, 210 Central Avenue.
