Ready to create and produce your project? Let’s go!

Producers are DCTV members who have successfully completed our Producing course and have become certified. As a DCTV producer, you can begin developing your content by working with your own personal DCTV project manager. Your project manager guide you through the entire producing process.

Start producing your program in 4 simple steps:

  1. Become a certified producer.
  2. Complete and submit your Program Proposal Form.
  3. Someone from our friendly production staff will contact you to set up a meeting.
  4. Meet with your assigned project manager.
  5. Start creating!

Certified Crew Volunteers

After you meet with your project manager, you will receive access to our database of certified videographers, editors, and studio technicians who can help you with your project.

Quick Tip: Attend DCTV events and workshops to connect with like-minded members. Also consider taking our technical courses to gain greater access to our equipment and facilities.

Crew Call

Ready to build your crew? Post a Crew Call. Tell people about your project and start collaborating with your peers. When pitching your idea, remember to tell your story — people want to know why your project is important to you and the community.

Quick tip: Use the elevator pitch approach — keep it short, sweet and engaging.
Policy Regarding Commercial Content

The DCTV capacity building grant program offers eligible nonprofits an array of benefits that build organizational communications and storytelling capability and provides an ongoing presence on cable television. We designed these grants to offer training and expert guidance to the nonprofit community, which enables you to robustly expand your impact within the DC community.

“Grant Level” is the amount of money your organization contributes to receive the grant. The grant term is initially one year and requires a very small organizational match. DCTV will provide documentation so that you can appropriately record “in-kind” services in your financial records. Grants may be extended or renewed with DCTV approval.
