The New Castle Media Center began with a humble beginning 14 years ago in the shared audio/video studio at Horace Greeley High School. NCCMC moved to its current facility on 400 King Street in September 2010 in effort to keep up with the times and improve their technology.
NCCMC offers many different products and services as well as lessons and instruction on how to use the digital video camcorders and the video editing software. There are nine cameras which can be loaned out, six small handheld cameras for beginners and three more advanced cameras. They also have all the supplies: lavalier and boom microphones, handheld microphones, lighting kits, etc. If youre interested in a video for any event, business, or organization, NCCMC can help you out.
The Media Center has their own studio with a green screen that can provide any background you may desire. It also contains a teleprompter, as well as state-of-the-art robotic cameras which give the studio multiple cameras with a staff of just three people.
There is also the control and programming board which monitors the programming being viewed by Verizon and Cablevision subscribers.
The Media Center also provides new videographers with five state-of-the-art Mac desktops with video editing software, FinalCut Pro. Residents who join NCCMC for $35 (or $60 for a family) get access to all that NCCMC has to offer, even training on how to use the equipment to create a video of your own and then how to edit your masterpiece. Membership is $50 for non-residents.
NCCMC is an asset to the Chappaqua community which gives businesses, as well as residents, an opportunity to display their passions and hard work through the art of film.
