How to Become a Producer

Our network is community-driven and powered by people like you. You can create your own television show, community story, documentary, or podcast as a member of our media maker network.

In order to use our production facilities, media lab, and remote production facilities or to submit programming, you need to sign up to join our community content team.  If you would like to learn more, fill out our volunteer interest form.

If you are ready to become a member, sign up here.

After you join as a member, we’ll work with you to map out a plan for training and getting you started.
