LRCC students shoot commercial

LACONIA — Lakes Region Community College (LRCC) Media Arts and Technology (MAT) majors, Krystal Jakows and Jonathan Geddis reviewed test footage taken during LRCC's first-ever student produced television commercial shoot earlier this month on Prescott Hill.

"It was an exciting opportunity to be able to work with all of the other students in different programs and get together to shoot the TV commercial, " says Jakows who anticipates graduating in May 2014. "The end result came out to be more than I'd hoped for. Classes with LRCC MAT professor Mike Place are fun, challenging and take students' creativity to another level."

"The opportunity to be the camera man for such a historical event became a once in a lifetime deal for me which will hopefully lead to more doors opening in my career," says Geddis also anticipating a May 2014 graduation date. "I can't wait to see the commercial aired." Jakows and Geddis were the directors of the shoot along with Place, and MAT major Ben Bate.

Local singer /songwriter Meg Josalen hosts new open mic at the Black Swan Inn in Tilton

TILTON — Beginning Sunday, November 10, local musicians can enjoy sharing their music with a true listening audience at the Black Swan Inn.

This intimate venue is welcoming, visually intriguing and new owners John and Trish Basiliere have been offering creative events since the purchase of the inn in March. Meg Josalen has been looking for such a venue to host an open mic for some time.

She shares, "Many times musicians get lost in the background of busy bars and this venue provides an opportunity for local talent to be heard. I am sure there are listeners who will appreciate a place to go to where local talent is highlighted, without the distractions of TV's and talking. This will be a great way to enjoy a Sunday evening."

The open mic will be held every other Sunday from 6-9 p.m. with a featured artist performing from 7-7:30 p.m. Local musician Don Bartenstein will be the first feature with other performers already booked for the rest of the year.

Musicians sign up to play at the door, typically 3 songs each. Original music is preferred, but not required. There is a cover of $5 for the evening, which includes coffee/tea and dessert.
People can join ' Open Mic at the Black Swan Inn' page on facebook to stay apprised of featured performers, see photos of the evening or to just support local music.
