Napa Valley TV is looking for funding to acquire and dedicate Video Production Equipment for live broadcasting of various High School sports games throughout the year. We currently air existing live sports programs on Comcast CH 27 and AT&T U-Verse CH 99.
Our goal is to have select sports games filmed by students. We will not only create value-added programming to Napa Valley TV, but will teach students a hands-on 21st Century Project-Based Learning skills approach to education.
$40,000 in funding is sought to purchase video equipment and pay staff training fees for initial and on-going support for the first year of all live sports broadcasts.
Our initial test launch with single camera coverage has been extremely successful! Vintage High School students have taken on the task of coverage several sports games throughout the year. Most recently was our first successful multi-cam production of the historic “Live Televised Big Game” coverage of Napa vs. Vintage High School football! This was very well received in the press and in the public. A volunteer crew of seven High School Students produced this game: 1 Director, 1 Graphics Operator, 3 Camera Operators, and 2 Voice Announcers.
