General Orientation
Wednesday, December 6, 2017 - 6:30pm

Curious about KDRT, DCTV or even DJUSD Channel 17, and want to learn how Davis Media Access can help you?

Plan to attend one of our General Orientations!

Any potential volunteers please come to one of these, held monthly.  They last about an hour and include the history of Davis Media Access, a tour of the facilities, and information on how to get involved. 

Anybody is welcome to attend an Orientation, but to use the facility for your own productions you have to live, go to school, or volunteer at an organization in Davis, California.    Davis Media Access does not charge for the use of our equipment and facilities and attending a General Orientation is the first step for getting involved.

PSA Day 2018
Wednesday, February 7, 2018 - 10:00am

As your community media center, Davis Media Access (DMA) works with many individuals and organizations to tell their stories—stories that create the fabric of our shared life in community. Here’s how participating in PSA Day at DMA can benefit your organization:

· Your PSA will highlight your organization, as well as provide information on how to contact you via your website and phone number.

· Your PSA will air throughout the year on DCTV channel 15 on Comcast, and Menu 99 on ATT U-verse, on DMA’s website and YouTube channel, and your contact information graphic will rotate on DCTV’s Community Billboard.

· We will provide you with the video PSA so that you can embed it into your own website

· You will be able to request specific times you would like additional airings of your PSA, for example, to coincide with a month of recognition that highlight your services

Our production staff will make sure that creating the PSA will not take too much time out of your day, and will be fun and easy in the process.

All you need to do is choose which day and time slot for your recording. Time slots are 45 minutes. Although you might not need all that time, we do not want to rush you though the process. You will receive a script ahead of time and will fill in the blanks, as well as confirm the information you would like us to put on the screen such as web address and phone number. We will put the script in a teleprompter, so you can just read it directly without the need for memorization.

And we can brand your PSA with your logo if you can provide a high-resolution logo in advance.

There are other video services for non-profits available in the Sacramento Valley, but with their prices starting at $350 per hour, PSA Day production services for your completed PSA at a flat $100 represents a tremendous value.  This fee is for one PSA only. 

PSA day will be held Wednesday February 7 & Thursday Feb. 8, 10am–6pm, with production slots open at the top of every hour. For more info please email diane@davismedia.org

Deadline to schedule your PSA is January 31, 2018 6pm.

Please view PSA Day 2017 to see what your PSA would look like:

We look forward to seeing you at your community media center, Davis Media Access!
