Volunteers have a wide range of possibilities available for participation. They can become producers and develop their own shows. Grant writers can develop proposals that partner with SMC and utilize media outreach which is often positive in a grant proposal. SMC can act as a fiscal agent, or partner. Studio and truck volunteers, football crews, other activities have opportunities.

A producer creates their own content to be distributed via cablecast and online to the community at large. SMC can also syndicate selected programs (and series) for producers. Producers own the copyright for their shows. All producers take responsibility for their own programs. Copyrighted information included in a show needs permission. Inappropriate language, violence, nudity, libel, slander, obscenity, or subject matter not fit for regular viewing is subject for review and may not be allowed. Our staff can assist producers as schedules allow.
If you are interested in learning more on a media topic, we offer classes by appointment or on Wednesday evenings. Classes cover topics such as camera, audio, studio, editing, media truck, and directing.
