Meeting Minutes - April 5th, 2017
Tom Sciangula, a TV camera operator, recently retired from Channel 12 News gave us some insight into the world of preparation for the daily news cast. There are always people behind the camera who prepare the news; meetings, assignments, being outside in all types of weather and conditions. There is so much seen that is not seen by the viewers. There are pictures in his mind, of things, he wished he never saw. In a nutshell, it is not easy to prepare a story, suitable for public consumption.
He showed us examples of the progression of camera and sound equipment over the years and said he met many well known people he would not have met, if not for his job. He felt it was time to retire with good memories. He told us we could request publicity of an event by calling 914-378-8916 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you Tom for your presentation.
Patti presided in Alice’s absence and the following was discussed:
Patti said she had a good experience at PETS and the theme was: we need more club members.
