Volunteers needed for Our Town: Hollidaysburg TV Production

Posted by Charlie G on 04/01 at 12:11 PM

Our next Our Town program will be featuring Hollidaysburg. Community members from the Hollidaysburg area are invited to attend a volunteer planning meeting to learn about the project. The meeting will be held at the Borough Building at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, April 13th and anyone interested in the production is invited to attend.

At the meeting, local Hollidaysburg residents will discuss which landmarks, events and local stories the program should tell about their town. WPSU will answer questions about the project during the meeting and ask volunteers to brainstorm a list of subjects and events to videotape. The volunteers themselves will later videotape the Hollidaysburg footage with the help of WPSU-TV to create the documentary.

We hope to recruit 20 to 25 area residents with personal camcorders. WPSU-TV provides one-hour of blank videotape to each volunteer in the format of his or her choice. There are no restrictions as to age or experience and no cost to participate, just a willingness to be part of the project.

Anyone who is interested in being a videographer and/or storyteller for the program should contact WPSU producer, Charlie Gudeman, at 814-863-9790 or by e-mailing .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

The production date is set for Saturday, April 18. The program will be broadcast in June during the station’s summer on-air membership campaign.
