Getting Started at MetroEastThe first step is to attend an Orientation. After your Orientation you can take workshops in any order. Volunteers may produce their own television shows or assist with others’ productions. Once a program is produced it will be scheduled for cablecast on MetroEast channels 11 & 21 .
Workshops are available each month to help volunteers of all experience levels learn video production skills. Workshop registration begins at 9 am on the first weekday of each month. You can sign up by calling (503) 667-8848, ext. 300. All workshops are held in our facility at 829 NE Eighth St. in Gresham.
Most workshops beyond Orientation cost $10 each. You may also pay $25 to take as many classes as you choose for one year. Fees must be paid by mail or in person before the class begins.
To become an active producer, visit us with your ID and fill out a Producer Information Form. A $50 activity fee will give you access to one free workshop, video cameras, studios, the dub station, editing stations and mobile production equipment. The activity fee must be paid before you can reserve equipment and other facilities.
Some fees may be waived through volunteer work. Contact our Director of Volunteer Services for information on fee waivers.
