Hamlet for First Graders


I got my start in broadcasting at a young age.

I think it was the summer after grade 6. My parents enrolled me in a unique summer camp. It was dubbed "Let's Make a Music Video". It was hosted at Rogers Cable 10, the community station in Newmarket Ontario.

We learned the ins and outs of television production. Studio shooting, ENG, lighting, audio and so on. The lessons I learned that summer carry through to this day.

We never ended up making a music video.

Instead, we produced this comedic adaptation of Hamlet, done in the style of Dick and Jane.

Dug up from the archives, I present this to you for the first time in more than twenty years!

What ever happened to the *rest* of the kids in this production? Did any of them go on to media careers?
