    Volunteering at CogecoTV

    Here's what some of our volunteers had to say about their time working with CogecoTV:

    "It's an opportunity to contribute to the development of all our young people by hosting and producing a show that enables them to share their voice with the community." 
    -
    Casimir McGeown

    "What we really are is one big family ...The best part of being a CogecoTV volunteer is the people I work with." 
    -
    Patrick Lamont

    "Everyone is important.  There is no levels of importance. I can't do what I do without the person behind the camera or on the sound board or in the control room switching cameras.  Every CogecoTV program and broadcast is truly a team effort with caring administrators coaching this team of us .... volunteers!"
    -
    John Fairley

    "You feel like you're doing something that makes a difference, supporting the community you live in. And the staff at CogecoTV really takes care of the volunteers. I wouldn't be where I am today without the volunteer experience I had at CogecoTV!"
    -
    Gord Laughton

    "The best thing about being a CogecoTV volunteer is getting the hands on experience at mobile and studio productions. You are able to learn many jobs that are involved in making a TV show. As well as meeting new people who are already in the broadcast industry or are just beginning to volunteer with CogecoTV."

    CogecoTV provides volunteer opportunities for all ages - for anyone who is ready to get hands-on experience working on a television crew and being a part of thier community. If you'd like to get involved, here are some positions available:

    Camera Operator – an individual whose job it is to work a studio, ENG or mobile camera during one of our productions.  When working this position, an individual will become familiar with how to properly frame a subject as well as the industry terms pan, tilt, focus, zoom, etc.  Such an individual might also learn how to set up a camera from “scratch” on a mobile shoot, as our mobile cameras, tripods and all necessary cables are all packed within our mobile production units and must be setup once a taping location has been reached.
     
    Director – an individual who “calls” the show and holds the overall vision for the production.  The director speaks to all other members of the crew during taping, from the camera operators, audio operator, graphics operator and host,  letting them know in which direction the show will take next, referring to the number of camera angles they have to choose from, as well as other production elements which make up the overall feel of the production.
     
    Floor Director – an individual that is in the studio, hooked up to a headset and in contact with the control room, letting the members of the studio know the wishes of the director.
     
    Host – an individual in an on-air capacity or television personality role.  They may also act as an expert in a specific field during an interview or act as a mediator when a number of interview subjects are involved.  They would greet viewers and let them know the topic of the show, the plays of the game, the news of the day, etc.
     
    Audio Operator – an individual who oversees all of the audio levels during a production, whether it be interview mics, music or pre-recorded break material.
     
    Graphics Operator – an individual who oversees all the graphic elements of the show, but does not necessarily create all of the elements.   The graphics operator will bring up whatever specific graphic element the director calls for at any specific time during the production.
