Brooklyn Caught in the Act

Friday, April 16, 2010

It isn't often that the words "award-winning" are used when talking about community access TV. But this year, Brooklyn Independent Television was nominated for a New York Emmy Award for an episode of its show, "Caught In the Act: Art In Brooklyn" which profiles Brooklyn professionals in the arts. BIT was founded four years ago. Its mission: to provide more top-quality Brooklyn-focused programming.

Check out a few segments from the show.




Hip-hop hero Big Daddy Kane keeps pumping out the lyrics after 21 years. And Brooklynites really appreciate that he's still at it.

Rogue taxidermist Takeshi Yamada introduces us to his mer-rabbit, spider-dog and other curiosities at his Museum of World Wonders in Coney Island. Yamada discusses his passions for all things odd.

Dance Theatre Etcetera presents site-specific work down on the Brooklyn waterfront and develops arts programs for neighborhood kids.
