Falmouth Community Television is hosting Virtual Public Service Announcement Days using the Zoom teleconference platform on Thursday, November 19, Friday, November 20, and Tuesday, December 1, for any nonprofit organization that would like a short public service announcement produced by FCTV staff. FCTV is offering this service as a means of assisting local organizations and community groups to publicize their mission, events or services during the COVID-19 pandemic.
All PSAs will be edited by FCTV staff and cablecast on Public Channel 13, also viewable on the station’s social media and website. In addition, FCTV encourages groups to use these announcements for their own promotional purposes including posting on their websites, social media or email marketing.
Participants should prepare a well-rehearsed, short script no longer than two minutes in length to be recorded by FCTV production staff using the Zoom platform. Participants are strongly encouraged to provide supplementary photos, logos or video content to create an engaging finished product. If necessary, FCTV staff will assist any participant in the effective use of Zoom.
The fee to participate is $25 for FCTV organizational members and $125 for nonorganizational members. This fee covers the production of one public service announcement. Additional announcements might be added for $25 each.
Time slots are available in half-hour increments on Thursday, November 19, from noon to 6 PM; Friday, November 20, from 10 AM to 2 PM; and Tuesday December 1, from 11 AM to 4 PM. To schedule a time slot, contact Andrew Richards, membership and outreach coordinator at FCTV, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone, 508-457-0800, extension 104. All scheduling will be done on a first-come, first-served basis. Time slots should be reserved before Sunday, November 15.
