Local station gives residents a chance to learn TV production
Breaking into the television business isn't the easiest thing to do. That's why Bronxnet, the boroughs local cable access station, gives residents a chance to get their foot in the door.
Bronxnet takes in students, most who know absolutely nothing about television at all, and teaches them the basics. The only requirements to become part of the program are that you have to live in the Bronx and be at least 14 to do it.
Bronxnet, based at Lehman College, offers eight-week courses to the public that teaches the fundamentals of television production. The classes give students the tools to start producing their own shows on public access, or move on to work in other parts of the industry.
Bronxnet has taught more than 2,500 Bronx residents in the 10 years its been on the air. The folks that run the station say it's a resource that perhaps thousands more don't realize is accessible.
