Volunteers Needed for Muncy 'Our Town' Documentary Series
July 9, 2012
Muncy in Lycoming County will be the next town featured in WVIA’s "Our Town" documentary series. It all begins on Thursday, July 12 at the Muncy High School Auditorium, 200 West Penn Street. in Muncy, PA, as WVIA holds a volunteer planning meeting at 5:30 p.m.
The "day-in-the-life" one-hour video scrapbook will focus on the people, places and happenings of Muncy, PA., as seen through the eyes of its residents.
At the volunteer planning meeting, residents from Muncy will discuss which landmarks, events and local stories the program should tell about their town. WVIA will answer questions about the project during the meeting and ask volunteers to brainstorm a list of subjects and events to videotape. The volunteers will later videotape the footage around Muncy with the help of WVIA to create the documentary. WVIA hopes to recruit 20 to 25 area residents with personal camcorders.
Anyone interested in being a videographer and/or storyteller for the program should contact WVIA “Our Town” producer, Lisa Mazzarella, at 570-602-1164 or by e-mailing email@example.com.
“Our Town: Muncy” will debut in September on WVIA-TV.
