Skype Productions

Using Skype to Create New Shows

We are working to help producers get new content onto the Bowie Community Television channel (FIOS 11/Comcast 77) without doing in-person shows. One of the ways we will be doing this is by doing productions using Skype.

With Skype, you will be able to record a new show, with or without a guest. The process will be similar but not exactly the same as what you are used to. Please use the information here as your guide, rather than what has been published previously by the studio or in the BCMC Producer’s Handbook. 

Each Skype project will consist of three, possibly four parts:

  1. Planning with a studio technician
  2. Practice session with your interviewee (if you are doing an interview)
  3. Skype recording session
  4. Add intros, outros, and make other simple edits

The sessions with the studio technicians (planning, recording, editing) will need to be scheduled. Please visit the Scheduling Sessions page.

We've put together some details about creating successful Skype shows with the Bowie Studio. After reading the information, if you are interested in doing a show by Skype, please send an email to studio@cityofbowie.org expressing interest in getting started on your first Skype production. Mark Patterson or Tom Allen will get in touch with you to review the details.
