Fidel is Fidel - Photography & Film Documentary Exhibit

Commemorating Fidel Castro’s 90th birthday, renowned photographer and filmmaker Roberto Chile has created a traveling photo exhibition and a documentary film about the public and private persona of the Cuban hero during these later years.

PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBIT • December 1st through the 31st.

DOCUMENTARY SCREENING: All Guantanamo is Ours • December 1st, 7pm

ARTWALK RECEPTION • December 9th, 5-8 PM with "Fidel is Fidel" film at 6:15 pm.

Two issues stand in the way of a fundamental improvement in U.S.- Cuban relations: “...the blockade has to be lifted and the territory occupied by the Naval base in Guantánamo has to be returned.”

Guest Speakers: Jane Franklin, author, Cuba and the U.S. Empire: A Chronological History (2016); and Alicia Jrapko and Bill Hackwell of the International Committee for Peace, Justice, and Dignity

CMCM CLOSED through May 31

The Bay Area-wide “Shelter in Place” order has been extended through May 31. In accordance with that mandate, CMCM will continue to be closed to members and the general public until at least that date.

CMCM studio reservations, equipment checkouts, workshops, and events are suspended until further notice. But since a large part of the work CMCM performs is Government services -- covering local meetings and operating the related government channels -- this work will continue since it is an essential part of public health and emergency communications between local governments and their constituents.

Programming will continue to be scheduled across all three channels, and you can submit programs to air on Marin TV electronically -- without having to leave home -- then tune into Channel 26 to see the results.

If you post your videos to YouTube, Vimeo or DropBox - just send the link. If you want to upload files to our dropbox, just ask.

To submit programs, please fill out the form found at this URL: https://cmcm.tv/online

To contact staff, please use email only. Thank you!

Don't Settle for Bad Sound. Like Your Mic!

"There's a reason the A is listed first in AV. It's audio/visual not visual/audio," says Master Communications Group, a highly experienced team of Minneapolis video production professionals.

"Amateur producers often focus too much on the video side of a project and forget the importance of the audio. Poorly recorded sound will kill a video more than poor video quality. When you watch a video and the audio quality is not good, the first thing your brain says is, 'The picture looks bad.' Here is just a short list of what can make an interview sound like Charlie Brown's teacher:

• Using a camera mic for the interview
• Improper placement of microphone
• Wrong microphone chosen for the task
• Using a phone to shoot the interview

The bottom line is: your video is only as good as your sound.”

Our friends at PhillyCAM (Philadelphia Community Access Media) have created a few short videos that will help you choose and use the best mic for your video. Watch and learn!

The Title of Your Marin TV Series (or Special/s):

I've produced 18 "specials" for Marin TV including "'Southeast - Life in the Alaska Panhandle," "The White Bag," and "Cuba, Libre."


In a nutshell, describe your CMCM series (or special/s): 

"Southeast" is a visual essay about Alaska's remote Panhandle region; it has been viewed on 27 public access stations across the U.S. serving over 1 million households.

"The White Bag" is a spoof on the 1940s-1950s film noir "cops and robbers" and spy thrillers. It was a CMCM class project in which I play the "Ace of Spies." 

"Cuba, Libre" is a documentary that traces this history of travel to Cuba by Americans from the early decades of the 20th century until the Cuban revolution, and in the last 20-odd years since Americans resumed visits to that island nation.
