Local Businesses Support Community TV through Underwriting

Tue, 01/03/2017 - 16:47 -- Patrick

LPCTV offers underwriting opportunities for local businesses who wish to show their support for local community television while taking advantage of a low-cost alternative or supplement to traditional advertising. In exchange for a tax-deductible charitable contribution, LPCTV will acknowledge each underwriter in its distribution of electronic and print media, including on the community bulletin board, and our website.

For more information about underwriting on LPCTV or to view sample "thank you" videos from the past year, visit lpctv.org/underwriting. You can also sign up right there on the site.

Here is a sample of a "thank you" video, which we produced for Heritage Family Credit Union, one of this year's underwriters:

We have completed our FY16 Annual Report (for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2016) and that is posted here. There are 2 versions of the Annual Report:

1) a data-based template that is used by Vermont Access Netowrk members, completed and submitted in compliance with our the VT Public Service Board requirements, and 

2) a narrative form outlining our activities, programming, and financials from the past year. 

You can find, access, download, & read other organizational documents (such as our Strategic Plan, Policies & Procedures, & By Laws) by visiting our Organizational Documents opage (under "About"). 

LPCTV Turns 15

Fri, 10/07/2016 - 10:42 -- Patrick

Thank you to all who came out for the open house last week to celebrate 15 years of community TV in the Okemo Valley. An unofficial tally estimated there were 60 attendees. We documented the occasion with video footage and photographs, which will be edited into a forthcoming montage.  Shown below is a shot of the LPCTV Board of Directors & staff, posing with the cake; and the other photo is a close-up of the cake, showing the fine craftsmanship and creativity employed by Big Eyes Bakery. 

A special "thank you" goes out to the restaurants who provided the "small bites": Brook Farm Vineyards, The Combes Family Inn, The Killarney, Mojo Cafe, Sam's Steakhouse, Stemwinder, & Table 19, as well as the cider from Brown's Orchard in Castleton.

Here's a video we made of the occasion:

Did you know you can use LPCTV to make TV of your own? Whatever your idea, vision, or message, our job is to provide you with what you need to make media and to do it effectively.

We have many tools at your disposal, including:

  • and all sorts of equipment that you can take out on loan.

In addition, we offer training in a variety of areas, including cameras, sound, graphic design, & editing. 

We encourage you to come put it all to use.  Our equipment & training are here for the community to use on a first come, first serve basis. Any individual or organization wishing to use these services must first become an LPCTV member. 

Select 1 or more times during the week when you would generally be available to attend a 1 hour orientation.
