Studio Workshop for Not-for-Profit Organizations:

Each NPO that serves our community can have employees/volunteers of the organization participate in PATV workshops. These employees/volunteers will create/produce programming only for their sponsoring organization. If interested, they can also assist other PATV volunteers on their productions. However, if they are village residents (of the 15 incorporated villages) they can also produce programs independently.
Materials fee for a Studio Workshop is $50 per individual participant paid by the NPO. This fee includes membership for the NPO in PATV for one year. All organizations must be members of PATV in order to use the facilities and equipment. All programs produced by the NPO must cablecast on PATV prior to cablecasting on other stations.
The first workshop is a studio workshop and needs a registration of 6-10 participants. The course covers information as explained in the video workshop brochure. Specific information for the group can be discussed with the Executive Director and Course instructor. Advanced courses in remote equipment and editing can be arranged. The Studio workshop is a pre-requisite for all PATV courses.
