The United Church of Christ communication office is producing a musical Christmas TV special that will air on NBC stations and affiliates in December. The special provides a unique opportunity for children's and youth groups in UCC local churches to be highlighted on television.
The special celebrates Christmas through the music and memories of children from different faith denominations across the United States. The UCC communication office is looking for children's and youth choirs, bell choirs, and soloists, up to age 18, singing or performing inspirational Christmas music.
The producers also are looking for children and youth, up to 18 years of age, willing to talk on camera about their fondest Christmas memories, and what this holy season means to them.
Performances may now be videotaped on a HIGH QUALITY consumer Mini-DV camera, or on broadcast quality DVCAM or BetaCam SP cameras. If you wish, you may also submit multiple performances and/or use multiple camera shots, and submit all on (required) non-HD (Standard Definition) Mini-DV, DVCAM or BetaCam SP tape. The deadline for submitting videos AND parental permission forms for all youth participants is Oct. 15, 2010. For more information, e-mail Producer Jean Robinson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
