The September Member In Action Is…

Congratulations to our September Member in Action, Fred Hixon! In addition to being one of the videographers and editors for the HCAM show “Point and Shoot” Fred is also the the producer of a new show entitled “Cooking With Love”.  HCAM Membership & Outreach Coordinator Christina Aiello had a chance to chat with Fred and ask him about his experience with HCAM-TV thus far.

Fred has been a member of HCAM since May, he calls himself a bit of a newbie to video production. He decided to become a member after HCAM Executive Director, Eric Dresser, gave him a tour of our facilities. He noticed our Programming Coordinator, James, working with our green screen and he became inspired to get involved.

When asked what he enjoys most about being an HCAM member, Fred said, “The support from the HCAM staff. They truly believe in the mission to ‘inspire, empower and share community through media’.  In May, I knew very little about video. Now in September I am a videographer/editor on one show and working as a create/producer on another show. I could have never accomplished that without the support of the HCAM staff.”

As mentioned above, Fred’s new show “Cooking with Love” follows host Linda Varraso, the show for HCAM. Owner and Executive Chef of Peppercornz.

Congratulations again Fred for being selected as September’s HCAM Member in Action.  Make sure you check back to our website for more information on Fred’s shows and other programming news.

Technology In the Hingham Public Schools

Today superintendent of the Hingham Public Schools, Dorothy Galo, was in studio to film the pilot episode of her new show “Superintendent Spotlight.” This episode focused on the new technologies that are currently being used throughout the Hingham Public school system. Dr. Galo sat down and spoke with a few members of the elementary administration including East School Principal, Tony Keady and Plymouth River Elementary School Technology Teacher, Tina Wehner. The trio discussed the many ways that technology facilitates learning for young children.

Screen Shot 2014-09-23 at 5.08.37 PMDr. Galo also sat down with Tim Ciolkosz, the Hingham Middle School 6th Grade Math and Science Teacher who introduced us to the new 3D printer being used in the STEM program which includes the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Take a look at the collage on the left hand side to see how this amazing piece of technology works and what it can create. Isn’t technology amazing?
