Meet CMCM Member Brian Jones

Your Name:

Brian Jones

How long have you been a member of CMCM?

Four years.

The Title of Your Marin TV Series:

Marin Poets Live!

In a nutshell, describe your CMCM series:

Local poets of note reading their works, talking about them, and about their Marin County connections in interview format.

Where were you born?

Oakland, CA

Where were you raised?

Terra Linda (now part of San Rafael)

If you attended college ... What was the name of the school? What was your major?

Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. My major was Electronic Engineering.

What is/was your occupation? How long have you been in this profession?

Electronic Engineering and later Product Marketing. Many years. Too many, I guess.

What inspired you to produce your own TV series?

Mariposa and Jonah served lunch after the shoot and I was talking with one of the crew members and asked if they had any volunteers, thinking I might

Cheese Theatre 200th Episode | May 12 at 10 PM on CH26

After 200 Episodes, Bill Arney’s “Cheese Theatre” Still Looks Sharp

Becoming a member of the Community Media Center of Marin in 2011, Arney was encouraged to host his own show. Eight years later, on May 12, 2018, Marin TV will air the 200th episode of Arney’s own Saturday night treat, “Cheese Theatre.”

Arney thinks of “Cheese Theatre” as a tongue-in-cheek version of Turner Classic Movies. “​It's the commentary that makes a show like this unique,” he says. “Who would watch TCM without the intro and closing remarks by the host?​ As he reflects on producing and hosting 200 episodes, Arney admits, “​I did not expect to get this far.“ Originally, I hoped to make it five years. Now that we are finishing up Season 8, I feel like it could go on forever. The only limitation is movie availability, but it seems there are plenty of them out there, waiting to be rediscovered.” It would seem “Cheese Theatre” is aging well.

Youth Exploring Sea Level Rise Science Program

CMCM has joined a collaborative project with Marin County’s Community Development Agency, the Welcome Center and Coravai, (an organization connecting the worlds of environmental science and policy) launching the Youth Exploring Sea Level Rise Science (YESS) program to produce a short documentary.

In this Spanish-language documentary, youth leaders from the YESS project will interview people in the Canal neighborhood of San Rafael, and share the work they and other Bay Area students are doing to document sea level rise vulnerability and spark conversations about community resilience to major flood events.
Stay tuned for further updates.
