Production Services of SPNN
The Community Productions Department
produces coverage of issues and events in St. Paul, and partners with non-profits, government agencies and community organizations to create unique programming for viewers in St. Paul.
Our productions can be seen on Comcast Channel 19. We are a department of three staff producers who work with freelance contractors, interns and volunteers to produce over 20 hours of original programming each month.
This programming is a mix of Public Affairs, Current Events, Community events and forums, some sports and arts.
Our production decisions are guided by several things:
- SPNN's mission to be reflective of and responsive to the community
- your desire to create relevent and informative programming of many kinds
- our desire to build relationships with the many organizations and communities of St. Paul
- the feedback, ideas, and opportunities we receive from local viewers
Partnering with non-profits, government agencies and community organizations allows us to create professionally-produced media for broadcast or internal organizational use, at a significantly lower cost than commercial production facilities.
We have the capability to produce high-definition media. We have four Sony cameras, a mobile production van that allows for location shooting of multi-camera programs. We have a full complement of audio and lighting gear. Also, we have a large television studio (dimensions) available to use for studio multi-camera productions.
Though our production focus is on informative and high quality programs for Channel 19, we can work with your nonprofit or governmental agency to create your next media project for web distribution or DVD presentation.
Is there an event you think we should know about?
We welcome your calls and mailings to alert us of events and opportunities in the community.
