How to Make a Television Program with GNAT:
Step One: PREPARE!!!
- Determine what type of program you would like to produce. What is the goal for the program? To educate, to entertain, to provide cultural enrichment, give others access to sports and recreational events, or to get others involved in politics?
- Determine with what frequency you would like to produce your program. Is it a one time show or part of an ongoing series? If it is ongoing how often will you shoot episodes? How often will you air them?
- What type of set and location would you like? Real set in the studio, virtual set using our bluescreen or on location.
- Do you have a crew to assist you? Who will host the show? Depending on the type of program, you will need a crew to assist with cameras, sound, lighting and editing. Click here to view Roles in a Television Production.
- Music and graphics. What theme song or music will you use? Original or copyrighted material? What will you do for your "intro" and "outro"?
- Finally, how will you publicize your program? Local newspapers, Facebook & YouTube? You may also think about using GNAT-TV's Website and Community Bulletin Board.

Please note, GNAT considers compliance with copyright law an extremely important and crucial element to making television.
Currently, several schools and individuals in Vermont have been contacted by their internet service providers about illegal downloads by educators and students.
Copyright holders may or may not pursue litigation, however, each instance, if pursued, can cost the accused up to $2000.00 per violation. It is important for each and every media producer and user to make themselves familiar with copyright law and its implementation.
