Did you know…. that Milton has a state of the art TV studio? Well…It does, and the TV studio is located at the Pierce Middle School (entrance around back).
Have you been here before? If not, that’s ok, here is your chance! Milton Access Television is having an Open House on Thursday, October 3rd from 5pm – 7pm. Come on down and see the studio, hear what we have to offer and learn about volunteer opportunities. You’ll have a chance to see the equipment we use, see our edit stations and take a tour of the control room and studio. You may even have the chance to be a part of the crew of a “live” show being taped that night!
The open house is a great opportunity to meet the producers, other volunteers and the staff to see what opportunities you might be interested in. Milton Access TV is looking for anyone who has an interest in film, TV production, editing and operating a camera. We need volunteers to assist on productions of shows originating in here in town.
Refreshments will be served. Space is limited, so please RSVP to email@example.com. Open house will begin at 5pm. If spots fill up for October, we will hold another open house in November.
The MATV studio will be closed on Monday, September 2,
in observance of the Labor Day holiday.
