Mrs. Melanie K. Lombardi:
Mrs. Lombardi, a native of the Cumberland area, began her video production career as a free lance videographer and production assistant in the Baltimore and DC area in 1999. She worked on different productions such as multi-camera recital productions for Jo-Mar Productions, commercial shoots and teleconferencing meetings for various companies. She was also involved with the Mount Carmel Players theatre group for one season as a lighting assistant for the production of Annie Get Your Gun.
Melanie began her current position as the FSU-TV3 Manager in the fall of 2000. She, with the support of the department, has implemented many changes of equipment and programming. Athletic events in the past were taped with a small single camera package for several years. The first upgrade of equipment was the purchase and use of a multi-camera equipment package for taping FSU sporting events, Frostburg City Council meetings, and numerous special events both on and off campus. Later, with financial assistance from Tele-Media Cable Company (now Comcast) and the City of Frostburg, FSU-TV3 was able to obtain additional equipment allowing for the upgrade from a manual router system to an automated system.
The event list for FSU-TV3 productions has grown to include panel discussions, concerts, fashion shows by local student organizations.
To serve the educational needs of the local community, several educational series of programs are in the channel's lineup including a series called NASA 360, the Reading Lady, the Adventures of SCUBA Jack as well as additional programming from PEGMEDIA.org. FSU-TV3 is partnering with the PEG Channel 97 on the Atlantic Broadband Cable system for programming and additional regional content.
As channel manager, some of her duties include teaching a multi-camera production course. The class provides coverage of FSU sports, Frostburg City Council Meetings, and specialty programs. Melanie also serves as a directed study and internship supervisor for students interested in production, post-production, multi-meda designing and other topics. Students under her direction produce a variety of productions and post-production projects for the local campus community and for FSU-TV3.
In her spare time she enjoys watching professional sports, reading, gardening, biking, and cooking.
