ELKHART — WNIT Public Television is now accepting volunteer videographers from the Syracuse area, through July 7, to help bring to life the unique story of the rich and vibrant town of Syracuse for the upcoming documentary, “Our Town: Syracuse,” premiering Monday, Aug. 21.
Interested individuals are encouraged to contact WNIT Senior Producer/Director, Brenda Bowyer at the WNIT Public Television Station.
About the Series
WNIT’s “Our Town” series is all about the towns and the people within them who help tell the stories of what makes their special corner of the world unique. Each individual series shows everything from historical sites to traditional high school hangouts, churches, downtown, restaurants, great traditions and other special places known to the local residents.
What sets the “Our Town” series apart from other documentaries is the towns’ stories are told through the eyes of the people who live and work there.
With the help of volunteer videographers and a little training from WNIT’s professional award winning production team, ordinary citizens become volunteer videographers and film their own creative scrapbook. WNIT’s professional staff edits the video recordings and combines them with interviews to create a storybook of “Our Town.”
This videotaping and editing results in a one-hour documentary reflecting the emotional ties of the people who live, love and are passionate about their town. In the end, if they have done their job correctly, their town becomes “Our Town: Syracuse,” at 8 p.m. Monday, Aug. 21, on WNIT channel 34.1
