PROMOTING YOUR PRODUCTION


First off -- the bad news, as a repeat of what you've already heard at one or another producer meeting, is that RVTV doesn't have an advertising budget to promote itself as a network, much less to promote your series.

What we do have, however, is a community television network reaching tens of thousands of homes across three local cable networks, as well as streaming at rvtv.sou.edu.

Some of you have made good use of RVTV Voices -- not only "show your show" but to promote when your show comes on. A simple search of our Public Access Archive reveals 122 separate promotional pieces submitted by local producers about local productions.

Many of you have not availed yourself of this opportunity. We continue to encourage you to do so (and we've made it easier than ever to submit your work via e-mailed submission forms and Dropboxed video files).

RVTV Staff would like to go one step further, however. After consulting with your Public Access Advisory Council, and thanks to an awesome new Marketing Intern from SOU, we're looking to deploy Series Pages on our aforementioned website over the next six weeks -- linked directly to the Programming Schedule for RVTV Voices.

We're not going to write these for you; instead, we'll be writing to you, and asking you to come up with "the copy" that you'd like deployed on a page describing your television series. This Series Page will also contain a customized Public Access Archive search link (just like with the promos link above) so that viewers can go straight to your on-demand programs, which are (by default) deployed in reverse-chronological order with the most recent programs at the top.

We'd also invite you to provide other links to your own website or to social media resources that you develop -- and if you haven't built a Facebook page, Twitter account or other means of reaching your audience, it's free and you are free to do so.

Naturally our website is on the 'virtual property' of Southern Oregon University, so at the end of the day we do reserve the right to not post something contravening the values and mission of SOU...but with that small caveat noted, we hope you avail yourself of this opportunity to share your program, and your vision of what you hope to achieve with it, with visitors to our website.

Studio Production Times
for Spring Quarter 2016



REMINDER: All cancellations must be made with 7 (seven) days notice, at the peril of losing all production timeslots for this quarter and the next. Yes, we really mean it -- no exceptions aside from documented death in the family, serious illness or other actual emergency. A guest cancellation is not a valid reason -- have a Plan B in place! Cancellations must be made in e-mail format and followed up for confirmation with RVTV staff.

FIELD HIGHLIGHT

Above, Ashland resident Jim Falkenstein shows viewers how to navigate an area hiking trail on Jim In Ashland.

He's handed in thirty-three (!!) of these slices of local Nature & Ecology for us to enjoy, both on the channels and available on our Public Access Archive -- remember that your short-form content is more likely to play more often on RVTV Voices!

NOTICE OF WORKSHOP RESCHEDULING


Due to lack of pre-registered enrollment, the On-Set Networking Advanced Studio Workshops scheduled for the next two Thursdays have been cancelled, and the proposed schedule for holding them later this year goes as follows:

Tuesday, July 5th, 6 p.m. - 8 p.m.
Tuesday, July 19th, 6 p.m. - 8 p.m.


Contact Charles Douglas at douglasc@sou.edu to register -- the cost is $40.
 

A REMINDER ON PROGRAMMING SUBMISSION HOURS



Due to limited staffing at the DMC, we are asking producers to submit their field productions, promos and any other programs to Charles or Alex during these particular hours:

Tuesdays 3:30-6:30pm
Fridays 4-6pm
Saturdays 9am-6pm


(PLEASE NOTE THE NEW TIMES)


This also applies to “walk-in consultations” – while we want to be open to inquires at all hours, the realities of limited staffing hours and increased operational demands make this a regrettable, but necessary request. If at all possible, make it a habit to call or preferably e-mail in advance to make an appointment. This will make for more efficient and successful outcomes for all concerned.

Please note that these program submission hours do not apply to any special appointments you’ve set up with RVTV staff – another incentive for pre-planned meetings – and your reservations to use the Public Access Edit Lab can be accomplished during any time of day that the lights are on at the DMC.

HAVE YOU LIKED US YET? OR FOLLOWED US?


We’re just going to keep belaboring the point: Social media tools are a key way for you to get the word out about YOUR programs to build YOUR audience on the Internet, which is quickly becoming the most important mass media platform in the world.

Those are our Facebook and Twitter pages. Please, ‘like’ in the former case and ‘follow’ in the later one. If you don’t have accounts on either or both, take five minutes each and set them up; you don’t have to give out personal information if you don’t want to in the process.

We’re counting on you to help us get the word out about your programs!
