If you want to expand your multimedia skills, consider signing up for the Aug. 12 evening workshop Creating a News Package
at Somerville Community Access Television (SCAT). You don't have to be a Somerville resident — or even a Massachusetts resident — to take the class. It's reasonably priced at $45 ($25 for SCAT members). It’s taught by Bill Barrell, a TV news veteran (he was a news editor at Boston's WHDH Channel 7). The workshop will cover writing and production.
Other relevant classes coming up at SCAT:
- Basic Editing using Final Cut Express. Starts Aug. 4. Meets for four sessions, from 7:00 - 9:30 p.m.; $40 members ($20 for SCAT members)
- Basic Portable Equipment. Meets Saturday, Aug. 8, starting at 10:00 a.m.; cost is $40 ($20 for SCAT members)
- Introduction to Photoshop. Starts Sept. 9. Meets for three sessions, starting at 7:00 p.m.; cost is $100 ($50 for SCAT members)
If Somerville isn’t convenient for you, try contacting your local cable access station to see what training it might offer.

It also talks a little bit about getting training through your local station. It’s aimed at filmmakers, is relevant to others, too.
