Every summer, GRTV broadcasts the Festival of the Arts live from downtown Grand Rapids on Comcast Cable Channel 24. How do we do this?
With your help!
Over the course of one weekend, more than 30 volunteers run camera, audio, video graphics and direct. And don't worry if you don't know how, we'll show you.
If you'd like to volunteer for a shift you see below, please fill out the form on this page or contact GRTV at (616)459-4788.
Your job as a camera person is to follow the action on stage with the camera, trying to keep your camera shot looking as good as possible. Camera 1 and 3 are positioned to the left and right of the stage on 6 foot scaffolding. Camera 2 will be located straight back on a scissor lift about 20ft in the air. Camera 4 will be a roaming camera in front of the stage or getting behind the scenes footage.
