Ed Lark - Studio Manager
The object of Public Access Television in Calaveras County is to offer residents the means and opportunity to video tape topics and events in Calaveras County and to have those topics and events cablecast on Public Access Television (Channels 7 and/or 9) located in San Andreas.
The Calaveras County Board of Supervisors with funds from the Cable Franchise Fees, supports the Public Access Television Studio including production and editing equipment so residents of Calaveras County, who do not own video equipment, may produce topics and events for Public Access Television (Channels 7 & 9).
Upon successfully completing a familiarization course and proving competency on the equipment, a resident of Calaveras County may check out, at no charge, production equipment such as camcorders, tripods, microphones and photo floods that may be used to produce a video that would be acceptable for viewing on Public Access Television. (Note: Equipment may NOT be taken from the County without prior approval from the Manager.) Furthermore, producers are permitted to use all the facilities at the Studio, free of charge, including the video editing equipment, by appointment on a first-come-first-serve basis. A producer is responsible for the cost of any video tapes.
If under age 18, a separate form must be completed by the parent or responsible guardian.
