Each summer SudburyTV offers a production workshop for kids through Sudbury Parks & Recreation. Students are taught how to operate the equipment and have time to practice. The students write, shoot, and edit a public service announcement or other short video that airs on SudburyTV. Workshop is open to students in grades 6-9.

Goals and Objectives
Registration for SudburyTV's week long workshop for students in grades 6-9 is through Sudbury Parks & Recreation Summer Programs.
Students will be taught how to operate our Studio and Remote cameras in a hands-on environment. They will learn cinematography, directing, and audio recording. The students will then write, shoot, and edit (using Apple Final Cut Pro editing software) a short video that will be broadcast on SudburyTV. On the last day of the class there will be a viewing of the final production, with a pizza party, and students will receive a SudburyTV t-shirt.
