CVC's Community Outreach & Media Services
The Community Voice Channel provides services to community-based non-profit organizations--Such as community, cultural, arts, labor, social justice and other organizations. By making their own media these community groups increase their outreach, create community dialog, and promote social justice or local cultural expressions. CVC's mission is to foster a media literate society, and to build a media infrastructure to serve the needs of all our seven town's residents and non-profit community organizations. We offer groups media planning consultations, access to field and studio equipment and free training.
All of our equipment and resources are available to your organization free of charge!
If you are an Andover, Bolton, Ellington, Hebron, Marlborough, Tolland or Vernon based not-for-profit organization your members can receive free TV-making training, so your organization can communicate with your members or reach a broader public.
Airing Pre-Produced Programs
Your organization can send us a completed video program and/or a short Public Service Announcement. If you are out of our district, you will be required to have a resident sponsor the show.
Training & Resources
Ideal for talk shows, live call-in shows, drama, cultural, musical and other live performances. It requires a trained crew of four or more people to operate. Studios are located at 105 Notch Road in Bolton. All our studios are equipped with the tools you need to make professional studio-television programs including titling equipment, tape deck to "roll-in" previously recorded footage, and telephones for live "call-in" from the public.
Ideal for making shows on location around your town. We offer regular workshops on how to use camcorders and other location equipment--such as microphones and lights. Once trained, members of the public may borrow camcorders free of charge to create programs for CVC.
We offer computer editing classes in Apple based iMovie and Final Cut Studio software.
