“PAC 14 offers open studio hours to Wicomico based non-profit organizations”
To provide additional assistance to our local non-profit organizations and to promote greater utilization of Public Access Television, PAC 14 will provide open studio hours. Qualified Wicomico based non-profits may reserve studio time for the purpose of recording 15 to 30 minute video programs. No more than one program per month please.
Many local citizens and organizations utilize PAC services, however there are other non-profits who recognize the value of utilizing PAC 14 but simply are limited by staff and resources. In response to this need PAC 14 offers a plan which provides the technical assistance needed to produce a basic talk program. This offer will provide the non-profit with a finished basic program. We ask that your limit production of your programs to no more than one a month, or 12 a year.
PAC 14 will allocate up to three 1-hour studio blocks of time on Fridays for Non Profit orgs. Bring in one host and one guest for a talk show style format. Provide PAC 14 with your organizational logo and any digital images you would like included on the program. Program lengths are variable, but we ask that you keep it under 30 minutes. This allows for ease of programming in our 30 minute time slots. Your org. may also borrow PAC 14 cameras to take "on location" to record events or any elements you want included. You can also provide a background of your choice. At this time, they are limited to a size of 3' X 4'. We can help you create a background using Photoshop. The image is then printed and attached to a foam core background. There is a cost associated with this as we use an outside vendor to print and mount the image.
