Free Speech Open Mic
All Ages Audio-Visual Open Mic
Hosted by Belmont Media Center
Celebrate & Participate in Community Media Day!
All afternoon from 1pm to 5pm on Saturday, October 20th participate & celebrate free speech, & support your hyper-local community media center.
Play your song, show your video, recite your poetry, do some stand-up comedy, or just speak your mind on Community Media Day here at Belmont Media Center's Waverley Square Studio A.
Our 3-camera HD TV studio will set up for small groups and singers/performers. We have a piano, plenty of mics, and an LCD projector for videos or images. If you want to be a video volunteer on the studio crew, sign up here too.
The entire afternoon will be cablecast LIVE locally & on the Web - and shared with local stations across the state and country.
If you perform, you can request a Bluray or DVD to be mailed to you for a small fee.
We'll also have an open reception with food & drinks from Belmont businesses and an info area about free speech & community media.
THE FIVE GOLDEN RULES
1. The length of your performance time depends on how many people confirm before the open mic. Each slot will be at least ten minutes. Those screening videos longer than ten minutes must email us before the event.
2. We cannot switch out full drum kits. If there are other bands with drums on the same date we will put you in touch with each other to see who wants to donate a kit for the duration.
3. If you want to screen a video or film we recommend an H.264 1920 x 1080 file. Send us a link or upload to our Dropbox Folder > HERE (you don't need a Dropbox account)
4. When you sign up for a time slot, you MUST add in the COMMENTS section the instruments and equipment you will be using if you're a musician. Otherwise, please tell us a little about your performance (music, essay, poetry, etc) so that we can be ready.
5. Belmont Media Center is open to all, so please be respectful of others. No abusive or threatening behavior will be tolerated.
