Mike Pleasant - September Member of the Month
Congratulations to Michael Pleasant–September’s Member of the Month! For the past few months Mike has volunteered his time and expertise to help develop new methods of compiling PhillyCAM event attendance records.
He has also spent a lot time collaborating with other PhillyCAM members while working on Pleasant Perspectives–a community-based talk show (Tuesdays at 6:30pm and Magazine Showcase–a variety show of music videos featuring Gospel, R&B and HipHop stars and social issue discussions (Tuesdays at 10:00pm). Mike collaborates with PhillyCAM member and producer Napoleon “Superstar” Jackson Kingcade to create Magazine Showcase.
Mike got involved with Philly CAM because it “offers diverse programming that is hard to find on network television.” He enjoys the way PhillyCAM is truly a station by and for the people and a place where “regular everyday folk can produce and air a TV program.” He also indicates other benefits of being a PhillyCAM member are “the ability to learn how to operate the camera, and edit the shows thru the various workshops.”
As he continues to create programs and expand his production skills, Mike looks forward to working in the new studio facility and collaborating with other producers. He believes PhillyCAM is “the best deal in town” and a good fit for “whoever is interested in having a voice that TV can provide.”
