Our Services

Open Studio    

AFTV’s Open Studio provides an opportunity to get a a show idea off the ground. It is our mission to give the community, including non-profit organizations and small businesses the opportunity to creatively express themselves, and offer help in making those ideas into television programs. 

Interested community members are invited to connect with an AFTV5 staff member to explore the opportunity of full production. 

If an idea is selected, we will work with you personally to bring your story to life. As a community empowerment organization, it is our mission to give everyone the means to showcase their ideas and concerns for the community. If your idea is not yet ready for this stage, you remain eligible for future Open Studios. 

Please reach out with ideas and questions for our Open Studio at .


AFTV5 will help with production services for its partners and members to give desired local programming a professional look. For more information on these services email us at


AFTV5 produces programs that inform the viewing public for its partners, members and local non-profit organizations. AFTV5 staff work with organizations to develop programs from beginning to end that give the community important information in a concise and professional way. Programs can be produced either in our studio or on location in any format (talk show, documentary, interview, etc.).

Public Service Announcements

Public service announcements are short informational programs (30 seconds to 1 minute) that explain the services, events or information that organizations would like the public to know about. AFTV5 helps these organizations develop a shoot and edit the PSA. The result is a professional looking piece that will inform viewers and invite them to contact the organization for more information.

Training And Workshops

AFTV5 offers a variety of training and workshops including free monthly Orientations to get members of the community on their way to working on their own shows and exploring the latest electronic communications applications. Workshops are taught by staff and our Open Studio resources in the television and technology industries. Email us at if you need additional informations.

Value-added Services

We realize that not everyone has the time or the staff to take advantage of production resources in the same way. Value-Added Services fill this gap by providing a service to the non-profit community at a reasonable rate for the production of a project. The cost is calculated at an hourly rate for staff time and use of the facility. 

These services are by request and are worked into the calendar year around other priorities. The summer is generally the most available time for project production. We accept proposals at any time of the year, so begin the process by emailing us at
