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. A fan at one of last year's Celebrate Brooklyn told Caught in the Act, "He's one of the premiere MCs... someone that can actually motivate the crowd and move the crowd and still be an elite lyricist."
Dance Theatre Etcetera presents site-specific work down on the Brooklyn waterfront and develops arts programs for neighborhood kids.
