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.

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 videos.
