Producer's Circle

PhillyCAM, is hosting an unprecedented gathering of over 50 community media producers for a conversation recorded live in our main television studio. This Producer's Circle will have everyone talking. It is not only a chance to learn about how to be a community producer at PhillyCAM but to also see it in action as we break the fourth wall. From the crew to the studio audience, everyone will be part of the action.

This promises to be a lively forum where experienced and emerging producers will share stories about what it takes to get a community television production off the ground, overcome reoccurring challenges and build audiences. Many genres and hybrids will be represented including new takes on conventional talk shows, social justice news programs, youth media, local music showcases, collections of independent films, Philly sports and more.

The Producer’s Circle will be live streamed on starting at 7:00 pm on Thursday, August 30. And in September the Producer's Circle will have it’s on-air premiere on Sunday, September 30 at 7:00 pm on PhillyCAM channels Comcast 66/966 and Verizon 29/30. The program will also be available for on demand viewing via the PhillyCAM webplayer as well.

This is a free event and limited seating for the live taping is available but RSVPs are required.
