Wendy Erikson, Production Technician

Wendy has worked in television for over three decades, starting with shooting news in Boston.  After moving to Vermont to raise her three kids she started her own freelance business and works on a variety of projects. From outdoor shows and series on local PBS, documentaries, commercials, to mitigation videos for court. Although shooting and editing are her passion, her other roles include producing, directing, audio, and lighting. She loves the diversity of the job and meeting new and interesting people.
VCAM staffer since 2015.

 

Matt Goudey, Digital Media Manager

Matt started his film and television career in Los Angeles in 1997 and quickly learned that he had just as much passion for behind-the-scenes work as he did for acting. He left LA for Vermont in 2004, where he had family, and enrolled at Burlington College for one semester, in order to get familiar with the local film crowd. In 2006 he moved to Bennington and worked for Pittsfield Community Television, in Pittsfield, Massachusetts. While attending an Alliance for Community Media conference in Boston, Matt crossed paths with Rob Chapman, the then executive director of VCAM, and the two became friends. Matt kept in touch with Rob over the next several months, and when the time came to move back to northern Vermont in 2007, Rob, serendipitously, had a job opening at VCAM, and offered it to Matt. During his time here, Matt has been a production technician, the technology coordinator, and now the digital media manager, and continues to research, learn, build, and teach how to use the systems and equipment that we offer our community in order to create appealing and compelling video projects. Matt is extremely grateful for the opportunities and the support he is given by his management and co-workers, and is also grateful to be able to live within a few miles from VCAM with his wife, Elaine, and daughter, Greer.

Eric Herz-O’Brien, Community Programming Manager

Eric doesn't like to talk about himself, particularly not in the third person. But he went to film school, and likes when people work hard at things they care about. Or at things they don't, but still need getting done.
VCAM staffer since 2013.

 

Jim Kelty, Production Technician

Jim has worked in community access television for more than a decade as a field producer, video editor, production coordinator, technician, and trainer. He is proud of VCAM’s role as an outlet for news and views ignored or marginalized by the mainstream media. “A lot of people who come through our doors are very knowledgeable about important issues, and their voices need to be heard,” he says. “It’s a privilege to work with local producers and help them craft their message and disseminate it to a wider audience.”
VCAM staffer since 2007.

 

Nate Lubetsky, Production Technician
