Free Volunteer Training! Nov 7, 8, & 9

hctvtraining20161107-copyOpen to Hardwick, Woodbury and Greensboro residents. Hardwick Community Television is offering a basic introduction for the public to use video camera and sound equipment on November 7, 8, and 9 from 6-8:30pm.

We will create a short video as an exercise using in-camera editing. The goal of the training is for the volunteers to be confident in setting up a shot using the tripod, operating the camera, and recording sound using a variety of microphones. Successful completion of the training workshops allows volunteers to use studio equipment to work on their own programs. HCTV always has opportunities for volunteers in the community.

Our Public Access Station is located in the Top Floor of the Memorial Building.

If you have any questions or want to sign up, contact Leif at the HCTV station. 472-6655 or

Only then does he realize his true self is only a scarecrow. Twelve Hardwick area youth participated in the video adaptation in this special HCTV Vid Kids workshop!
