We hold FREE workshops on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays, which rotate every season. These workshops follow three distinct paths: Field Production, Studio Production, and Post Production. Visit our Workshops page to learn more about what we are offering today! If you see one you like, you can register for it on the homepage of ISAAC.
Once you sign up and complete our workshops, you’re ready to start making content. Equipment is available for check out on ISAAC on a first-come-first-served basis. As soon as you know the date you need the equipment, submit a new reservation. You will receive an email letting you know if the reservation has been approved by a staff member.
Interns receive hands-on training in TV studio production, video field production, and digital editing. Interns assist in the production of studio shows, public service announcements, and event coverage for broadcast on WCA-TV channels and wcatv.org. Interns are encouraged to create their own projects for their demo reels.
Interns will learn the ins and outs of producing a full-length television newscast and be able to put together news segments for our weekly news program, Watertown Weekly News. Interns will have the opportunity to produce their own stories and be on-air.
Interns will learn how to operate and maintain our radio station, WCAC-Radio. Interns will work closely with staff and volunteers to ensure that we have a wide variety of content going out over the airwaves.
