Frank MorelloProduction Coordinator
Frank started his career in TV with Comcast in 2006. His studies at Curry College and The Art Institute of NE landed him in Brookline as Comcast’s Local Origination Master Control Operator. Through hard work, dedication and positive attitude Frank was able to parlay what started as an internship into a full time position. Due to this opportunity Frank developed skills in importing and scheduling. Excited by the chance to learn more, Frank quickly became versed in field and studio camera, including work on sports, music, talk and educational shows.
During this period, Frank also completed formal training in Final Cut Pro. The next step was to combine all the skill and produce/shoot and edit his own show for Comcast’s Local Origination operations in Boston and Brookline. Shortly thereafter, Frank became the Production Coordinator at Boston Neighborhood Network, where his duties included 60 single-camera shoots per year, multi-camera productions and truck shoots.
Now Frank has seamlessly transitioned to Access Framingham, working since September of 2013 as our Production Coordinator. Frank has become an important team member and will continue to be available to help members and our partner organizations in any way possible.
