About Jim

Hello, folks!

I have been working in the television and video field for several years. Through my work in Public Access TV, a period of about 12 years,
I have discovered that I greatly enjoy teaching my craft to volunteers and students! I also enjoy feeling that I am able
to show someone how they can take their vision of a production or TV show, and turn it into reality! I do feel that I would
be a great tutor and addition to your organization. I also have a background in news production video, as I was employed at WJAR-TV in Providence,
RI for several years. That experience gave me a good background in attention to detail and working on a quality finished product. My years in
Public Access television have brought out my enjoyment of teaching a wide variety of people - through the years I have taught folks from
12 - 75 how to run cameras, record audio and edit a finished production! One of the Public Access studios that I was employed in was located in
a Middle/High school, so I have a great deal of experience in teaching and working with students.

Most of my experience is in A/V production - audio, camera, lighting, etc - and I frequently work with Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere and Photoshop. I Also have experience with photography and portrait photography. As we all know, due to technology, a lot of the television production equipment that has been used through the years has become a LOT more portable and consumer-friendly! I recently heard a quote from Joe Perry, the co-founder and lead guitarist of the rock group Aerosmith, who said that all the equipment needed to produce an album in the 70's, roughly an entire production truck, can now be accomplished with a computer and a few microphones! Amazing, eh? So, because of these changes, the average student or tv volunteer can produce a program worthy of broadcast television or a cinematic release! That's where I come in - I will gauge the students level of ability, interest, etc., and produce a schedule of training for each student - seems to work quite well, as I have had good results so far!

So, I do hope that I can be a great addition to your organization, and start to tutor students soon! Please contact me soon, so that kids can begin their rewarding and exciting journey into video production!

Thank you, and hope to hear from you soon,
Jim C.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Video Production

I have about 20 years of experience in the video production field, including experience in camera, audio, editing and field production. My most recent experience in with the Adobe Premiere & Creative Cloud editing systems. I am also proficient with Final Cut Pro.

I do believe that I could be a great assistance to a student, as I have also been wording in the Public Access field for the last ten or so years - through this work I have gained a wealth of experience in training many volunteers on production equipment.
