Tech tAUk Interest Meeting on Saturday 9/10 at 4 PM

Tech tAUk is getting ready to kick off our third season, and it’s going to be our show’s biggest and most exciting season yet. We’ll be changing up the format of our show a bit, launching a new logo, and expanding the scope of our show with new segments and new contributors to focus even more closely on technology at AU and in our daily lives.

We’re always looking to welcome new members to join our show, whether you’re interested in contributing your insights in tech on-camera, writing articles on our blog, or participating behind the scenes in our awesome crew. Check out some of our opportunities:

Crew Opportunities
We’re looking for Camera Operators, Tech Directors, Set Managers, Sound Operators, Video Editors, Motion Graphics artists, and much more! And if you have no experience with these roles, don’t worry, we’ll train you and give you some great hands-on experience working on one of ATV’s highest production-value shows.

On-Camera and Off-Camera Tech Coverage Opportunities
We want to bring many more voices and perspectives onto Tech tAUk this year. If you’ve done some cool stuff in the tech realm, or want to share your expertise and insights, we’d love to invite you to contribute to the show. Are you really into video games? Or perhaps you really like hacking or modding cool stuff? Or perhaps you know some great websites and social media trends? No matter what you’re interested in, we can certainly find a place for you as an on-camera contributor to Tech tAUk.

Don’t want to be on-camera? We’re also looking for researchers, who help us find the tech stories and topics that make it into our scripts.

We also are welcoming anyone who would like to be a contributor to our Tech tAUk blog, which we are going to be making much heavier use of this year, and will be actively promoting on the show. If you really like to write about tech, this is a great opportunity to expose yourself to a growing audience.

I’m interested in joining, what should I do?
We are having a Tech tAUk Interest Meeting/Training this Saturday, September 10, 4:00-5:30 PM. The meeting will take place at the ATV studio in Mary Graydon Center 256, and anyone interested in participating is invited to attend.

Or, if you want more information about joining ATV in general (including information about Tech tAUk, as well as ATV’s other shows and departments), come to ATV’s General Interest Meeting on Thursday, September 15, at 7:00 PM.

If you have any questions, please e-mail Co-Producers Douglas Bell and Josh Feldman. Thanks for your interest; we’re looking forward to an awesome 2011-12 season of Tech tAUk!

About Douglas Bell

I live in Washington, D.C., and work as a Broadcast Technician at WAMU 88.5 FM, the local NPR affiliate in the Washington metro area. My primary shift is to engineer the local feed of NPR’s Morning Edition, including local news and weather, long-form features and station breaks… and yes, the shift starts at 5 am, so I’ve got the whole quasi-nocturnal thing going on. I am also the Coordinating Producer for Ken Rudin’s Political Junkie, an independently-produced podcast and public radio program. Extracurricularly, I play cello, and participate in a church choir and a handbell choir. I enjoy discovering new places, and am constantly searching for the perfect cheeseburger. I am also known as a frequent teller of puns.
