Brookline Interactive Group

Members of BIG have access to our video production equipment and facilities. Whatever your goals and needs are, BIG has the resources to bring about your vision. Members can register for classes to refine or learn new skills and may also volunteer on ongoing projects.

Members can self-determine what level of membership they can afford, but in order for BIG to continue its broad community-based media services, a membership donation of $50 or more is highly encouraged. Scholarships are available to those in financial need (email for more information). 

Thank you for your support!
