Welcome to the BEC-TV Tech Portal!

This site is for students Gr 7 and up who team with Bloomington Educational Cable Television to make great TV programming for the community.

Introducing TechTeams

Starting in the winter of 2018-19 most our shoots will be crewed by seasonal TechTeams.

Ready for a number to stun you into next week? 480! That's how many crew positions we get to fill for the 80 different productions we've got planned this winter. And YOU get to be a part of the action.

You've got some options for signing up, but here's something new: You MUST sign up for some stuff to be an active part of BEC-TV.

We know some of you have felt comfortable watching from the sidelines. Head's up: The coach is calling YOU into the game!

1) Sign up for a Winter Season TechTeam - The very best way to get involved. Regular shoots with a regular team! Yay!

2) Sign up for a MINIMUM of 3 Individual shoots this winter. That's like one a month. EVERYONE can handle that, right?

3) Bench Yourself: Too Busy this season? Take a break, and we'll chat again in the spring.

Deadline to respond by is Wednesday, December 12

Missed Basics?

Basics is a 3 hour training/orientation session required for all New Techs who want to volunteer with BEC.

We just held 2nd Trimester's session on December 3. The next one will be at the beginning of 3rd Trimester. However, if you're interested you don't have to wait until then. We can probably get you on a shoot as an "observer". Shoot us an email at and let us know, and we'll get ya all set up.

Farewell Football, Hello Hockey

Football: It's a wrap!

Thanks for a great season, Football Crew!

Unfortunately, we will NOT be covering State Football at US Bank Stadium this year.

Winter is coming up fast. It's time for Hockey!

Hockey season has now started. If you're interested in joining the Regular Crew for the Hottest Game on Ice, shoot an email over to and let us know.

Remember to Sign in at Shoots!

This year we implemented a new way to track attendance at shoots by using a simple Google Form. However, amidst the craziness of a shoot, it is hard to remember to actually sign in. Signing in is what gives you credit for a shoot. Please remember to sign in, and remind others to as well.

Look for the QR codes posted at our shoot locations. (Snapchat has a QR code reader built in- point your camera at the code and tap and hold. The posters also have a link written out.) Once you open this on your phone, bookmark it!

If you don't have a phone, ask a staff member or fellow Tech and they'll help you out.

See what you missed!
