General Orientation
Wednesday, October 16, 2019 - 6:30pm

Curious about KDRT, DCTV or DJUSD Channel 17, and want to learn how Davis Media Access can help you? Plan to attend one of our General Orientations!

Orientations last about an hour and include the history of Davis Media Access, a tour of the facilities, and information on how to get involved.

Anyone is welcome to attend an Orientation, but to use the facility for your own productions you must live, go to school, or volunteer at an organization in Davis, CA. Davis Media Access does not charge for the use of our equipment and facilities, but attending a General Orientation is mandatory.

Introduction to Chroma Keying (aka Green Screening)
Wednesday, October 23, 2019 - 7:00pm

Have your talent appear anywhere! This workshop will introduce you to the principles of chroma keying AKA green screen. We will cover how to shoot green screen material, how to light a screen (typically green) for the best results, how to utilize the DMA studio green wall, and how to set up your keys in Final Cut Pro X. Chroma keying is a great way to add production value to your project, but you need to understand how it all works in order to avoid making your project look cheap with poor quality green screen work. Lecture w/ hands-on and Q&A.
