Boston Media Makers Theme Song:

The Making Of:

The goal was to make the first ever +Boston Media Makers Theme song. Short and quick with no prior practice. This was done on the spot with some of our BMM friends. They actually pulled this together in a collaborating way in approximately 10 minutes, the we recorded and published it. This in part is how things came together.

The 6-Second Vine Video:

Produced in 10 minutes.

@AleciaOrsini catches us up on #teamGND AND public radio adding video

At the January meeting there we quite a few attendees that were interested in music. So at the February meeting, at NOON, we’ll become Boston Media Music Makers.

We’ll join together to create and record a Boston Media Makers theme song!


We gather around a big table and answer the questions:

– What are you doing?

– What do want to do?

– Do you need some help?

– You can ask questions too.

– Come with a prepared show and tell if you like.

This meeting started out with people who were working with audio and video on the web but over the years it has expanded to include podcasters, video bloggers, filmmakers, artists, actors, musicians, writers, programmers, news reporters, PR and social media people. We help people GET SEEN. 😉

The BEST thing about this meeting is that everyone who attends, gets to meet everyone else.

I love how it has expanded. Every month is a new experience with both returning friends and new attendees.

    Good evening!
    I’m a graduate journalism student at Emerson College and I would like to cover the Boston Media Makers meeting for my Online Media class. If possible I would like to conduct interviews with the attendants and organizers. Please let me know if this is possible and thank you for you time.
