The GCTV Television Production Course: An Introduction to Television Production
The GCTV Television Production Course is an 8 week workshop that teaches you all the basics of Television Production. Completion of the course certifies you as a GCTV Producer, enabling you to produce your own television shows on Grafton Community Television, Channel 11, as well as use of our editing, studio, and field production equipment to assist you in your productions. Some aspects of the course that will be taught are Studio Camera Operation, Audio, Lighting, Editing, Directing, and Field Camera Operation. This course is open to all Grafton Residents, Town of Grafton Employees and Grafton Business Owners, age 18 or over, regardless of whether or not they are cable subscribers.

In addition, Grafton Residents ages 12 – 17 may also take the GCTV Television Production Course if they have met the requirements set by Grafton’s Cable Television Oversight Committee. For a full explanation of the GCTOC’s Under 18 Access Policy, click here.

Advanced Training Workshops for Certified GCTV Producers
Once you have completed the basic GCTV Television Production Course, you may find that you want to learn more about one of GCTV’s editing systems, directing, our graphics system, or a new piece of equipment or software that was not at GCTV when you took the GCTV Television Production Course. Please consider signing up for a GCTV Advanced Training Workshop- a one time, 2 hour session for individuals or small groups on a specific subject. These workshops can be scheduled for individual students anytime during GCTV’s normal operating hours, with an instructor of your choosing, and in addition, may be offered to small groups (no more than 5 participants) several times throughout the year on specific dates and times.
