Workshops

We at Waterloo Community Television believe in placing the means of media production in your hands. We welcome all genres of shows: talk shows, news forums, debates, education, religious, short films, sports, or comedy.  So here's your chance to stop complaining about television and to start making it!

In order to produce a program using our equipment, you must be certified.  This can be done very easily.  Sign up for one or more of our workshops and we will take you through all the steps necessary to get familiar with our equipment and to produce your own program.  All training is hands-on. It's fun, it's easy, and no prior experience with video or television is necessary!
