Cameraman Joah Colby, with STEP UP Interns, Tyson and Darius MTN at the NE Parade, June 17, 2014
MTN Production Services had a fantastic day at the NE Parade this last week. Our STEPUP interns had their first day on the job at the parade. They jumped in helping our camera people navigate the parade. We got lucky and it was a rainless evening. Tom Siwek interviewed the parade participants while MTN streamed it all live. a fantastic event!
For 28 years, the Turtle Derby at University of Minnesota Children’s Hospital has been a popular fundraiser and tradition for patients, families and staff. The fundraiser provides many of the extras that make our children's hospital a healing place with a heart. MTN loves to livestream this event into the hospital for the children being cared for inside. Check it out on MTN's Channel 16, this Thursday, June 26, 2014 from 10am-1pm. http://uofmchildrenshospital.org/About/TurtleDerby/index.htm
MTN Youth Screening
On June 8, MTN Youth screened their Queer Media Project (QMP) at Out Fest Twin Cities Film Festival! Seamus and Jude were fantastic MTN ambassadors filming the teen family programming and taking questions after their video was screened.
