SCTV is a volunteer group that shoots, edits, and distributes video programming of interest to older adults. A wide range of subject matter is featured, specifically produced to promote the Senior Center, the community, and intergenerational cooperation; and specifically created to present a positive outlook on aging.
Senior volunteers work alongside students from the University of Iowa and other community members to generate more than six hours of original programming a month. SCTV programs air on City Channel 4, PATV 18, as well as in North Liberty and Coralville.
With the use of a fully equipped studio and the help of experienced staff members, volunteers will have the opportunity to learn the various techniques and technologies of television production, which could include everything from camera work to video editing, lighting, and sound recording. Volunteers will also assist in program archival, video duplication, and program delivery.
A weekly meeting is held every Monday where volunteers discuss current and upcoming projects. This is followed by a training session led by staff members and experienced volunteers, featuring topics ranging from basic camera techniques to advanced digital motion graphics.
No experience is necessary to join SCTV, and all skill-levels are welcome!
Weekly meetings/training sessions are held:
