Toastmaster Time - Special Project

Page history last edited by Stan Ng 10 years, 3 months ago

Toastmaster Time (TmT) has been in production for more than 10 years, at the Comcast Fremont studio, as a public access production. Comcast recently announced to all their access producers that all public access studio availability is discontinued. As a result, the producers of TmT are scrambling to find a temporary studio until Comcast can ink an agreement with an East Bay production facility (either Chabot College or Fremont Adult School) to provide studio facilities for existing public access producers which used to use Comcast facilities. They would need a studio date for October and November.


Stan has offered to help produce shows at the Media Center for those two months.

List of Graphics

See Graphics folder for design of TmT Graphics - we want to be reasonably close to these graphics. The original graphics are from Compix system, so we would not be able to import these directly to Deko; they would need to be redesigned.
