Productions and the Program

Q: How many places do you have on the program?

A: We have space for 6-9 students each year, and you could be one of them!

 

Q: What are some of the highlights going to be in the next year?

A: We’re currently planning a new studio! If you want to be part of seeing a new studio being put together from the ground up, then this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

 

Q: What on-the-road productions do you have planned?

A: Still to be announced for 2017/2018.

 

Q: Do you have any examples of MM work?

A: Sure. Pretty much all the videos in our on-demand library that have been produced by LifeStyleTV in the past 10+ years have had MM involvement. The LifeStyleCLIPs were produced almost exclusively by MMs.

 

Practical Stuff

Q: What’s a typical day/week like for an MM?

A: Breakfast at 07:00, worship at 08:30, projects from 9:00-13:00 (studio recordings, editing, or otherwise), 13:00 lunch, 14:00-18:00 projects. 18:00 supper and free time (if there are no productions needed), 22:00 sleep. MMs take turns to make breakfast, lunch and supper. Wednesdays we have prayer meeting, 18:00-19:00. Fridays there are vespers at staff homes, usually 18:00-21:00. Sabbaths we go to church, and Sundays are usually free (if there are no productions or outreach). There are also some housekeeping chores to do on a Sunday.
