2017 Most Fascinating Individuals – Call for Nominations!

It’s that time of year again… As we approach our annual Concord On Air event, we want to feature 2017’s Most Fascinating Individuals!

Who can be considered fascinating? Think of an eclectic mix of captivating people from the greater Concord area who are prominent names (or work quietly behind the scenes) in politics, arts, entertainment, sports, economic development, popular culture, philanthropy, civic pride, entertainment, and beyond.

Besides being fascinating, what else is necessary to be considered? Most Fascinating Individuals have to satisfy the following criteria:

  1. Must be active in the Concord community.
  2. Must currently live or work within a 30 mile radius of Concord.
  3. Must be an individual, not a couple or a group.
  4. Must not be a staff or board member of ConcordTV

Hey, I know someone who’s fascinating and meets all the criteria! How do I nominate them? Fill out the 2017 Most Fascinating Individuals Nomination Form. Be sure to include a separate page explaining why you think this individual should be considered one of Concord’s Most Fascinating Individuals of 2017. Once you’ve got that done, drop it off or mail it to ConcordTV, 170 Warren St., Concord, NH 03301, or e-mail it to doris@yourconcordtv.org.

Super! And when’s the deadline for nominations? Nominations must be received by September 22, 2017.

How will we find out who’s been selected? Selected nominees will be contacted by Monday, October 2, 2017. Nominees will then be featured on ConcordTV’s 8-hour live telecast, Concord On Air, on ConcordTV channels 6, 17, and 22 on Sunday, October 15, 2017.

So don’t delay. Download a nomination form, submit it by September 22, and watch the big reveal of Concord’s Most Fascinating Individuals of 2017 on October 15th!

Video Tech Tips


Creating video content from your smart device has never been easier! Hit record, share, and you’re done. BUT are your videos lacking professional quality?
Use these tips and you’ll be impressing your friends and family in no time!

iphone video (1)

 1. During your recording keep your phone/tablet horizontal (landscape) not vertical (portrait)

 2. If you can’t afford a microphone try to shoot in a location with no background noise and move closer
to your subject.

 3. Avoid shaky video. Invest in a tripod or set your recording device on a sturdy object.

 4. Be aware of backgrounds. Make sure anything in the background appropriately represents what you want an audience to see.

 5. Use editing software such as iMovie or Adobe Clip to trim your video, add music, and/or text.

 6. Share! Most editing programs allow for easy uploading to social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, and Youtube
note: If creating a video specifically for Instagram there are other factors to keep in mind. We will address that in a future blog post

 7. If you’re still not getting the quality that you want, it might be time to look at more professional
gear. ConcordTV offers monthly video camera and editing classes that will help get you started.

Call us at 226-8872 to register for classes or to get more information.

Welcoming Melissa Sweatt to the ConcordTV Team


We’re thrilled to announce a new staff member of the ConcordTV staff, Melissa Sweatt. She’ll be taking over the scheduling for Channel 22 and you’ll likely see her around Concord on productions. Welcome, Melissa!

About Melissa

Working in the film and television industry has been a passion and dream of mine since I was 12­years ­old. I grew up in a small town north of Concord and was always writing stories, developing characters, creating plots, etc. but I always envisioned this stories as movies. As a graduate from The Center for Digital Imaging Arts at Boston University, I have been able to pursue this dream to the best of my ability. I currently freelance for New Hampshire Public Television and Whitebridge Farm Productions. I also work part time for NH1 News, and am proud to be the newest edition to the ConcordTV family. In my spare time I enjoy writing screenplays, making my own short films, hanging out with friends, fishing, and lounging around the house with my cat and two dogs.

Watch The Pirates of Penzance on ConcordTV!

Opera walks the plank for a ship full of laughs when the Community Players of Concord stage
Gilbert and Sullivan’s comic masterpiece PIRATES OF PENZANCE.
Not the sharpest blade on the deck, a loyal pirate apprentice named Frederic finds himself
bound by a paradoxical contract, a clutching nursemaid and true love.
Throw in a troupe of terrified policemen, an overly-articulate Major General, a bower of
giddy maidens, a glorious score by G & S and you have the delightful
PIRATES OF PENZANCE from the Community Players of Concord!

See for yourself on ConcordTV Public Channel 22 (for Comcast customers in Concord),
live-stream of the channel is available here.

AIRTIMES:

Tuesdays @ 2:30pm

Thursdays @ 11:00pm

Saturdays @ 5:30pm
