GCTV on MSG Varsity: Tuesday Jan. 24th

MSG Varsity recently visited the Glen Cove High School TV Studio to observe the Communication Arts Academy students in action and tape a segment for their ongoing series, “Students in the Media.” Kevin Waters, MSG Varsity’s Regional Manager for High School Partnerships stated that the work that GCTV has been submitting this year is “tops both in quantity and quality” and thought it was time to capture the students in action.

“We followed MSG Varsity around as they followed us around,” said Francesca Sharper, Glen Cove High School Junior and member of the school’s newly formed Communication Arts Academy.

Afterwards Mr. Barry and several students were interviewed about their experiences so far with the program. Mr. Barry stated that, “A visit like this not only showcases the Academy and the work that they are doing, it also gives the students a chance to see a real professional production unfold and at the same time they get to meet and speak to professionals in the industry. It’s a win-win situation for all involved.”

A cameraperson followed Mr. Barry’s TV Production I class as they rehearsed and recorded a student-written commercial for fictional product “Speedy Gumzalez” written by sophomore Samantha Sullivan and directed by senior Dan Lynch. Simultaneously, the Communication Arts Academy news crew was covering MSG’s visit for the GCTV Friday Morning News. MSG Varsity’s “Students in the Media” featuring the Glen Cove Communication Arts Academy airs air for the first time on Tuesday, January 24th at precisely 6:55 p.m. on the MSG Varsity Network.
