What is Green Screen Fun: More About how it works. Very easy.
- Choose one or more holidays (Halloween, Thanksgiving, Kwanza, Hanukkah, Arba’een Pilgrimage, Christmas, New Year’s Eve)
- Your messages can be any length: a few seconds long to a few minutes. Each “Make TV ” session typically takes 3 -10 minutes. Being holiday-related is not a requirement.
- Drop-in. No reservation needed. Be spontaneous.
- Or, plan ahead. Reserve time for you or your organization via email: Put Make TV in the subject line. Provide us with the name of a person and/or organization, time of day and contact phone number. Having a reservation gives you priority attention throughout the day or dedicated time before or after video drop-in hours.
ALL AGES. FUN. NO FEES.
Businesses are welcome to use this opportunity for noncommercial messages. Civic Groups can promote upcoming events. Tell a story. Youth groups plan a skit or public service announcement. Click here to view a ‘shop local’ business green screen. A favorite.
