Akaku offers introductory class

Akaku Maui Community Media invites all residents of Maui County to join its class titled “Introduction to Akaku and Public Access Media” from 4 to 6 p.m. Monday at the Akaku Studios, 333 Dairy Road, Suite 205 (upstairs), in Kahului.

This class is an introduction to the policies and procedures at Akaku and the role of public access television in the community. The orientation is a prerequisite for all of Akaku’s video production classes and also includes a tour of Akaku’s studios and facilities.

Akaku is a nonprofit community television station where any Maui County resident can learn about video production and become certified to use professional equipment and facilities. People can also produce their own TV shows for cablecast on local television.

Akaku offers classes in field production, studio production and digital video editing at a low cost to members of the community. Once trained, certified members pay an annual fee of $50 and can then reserve cameras, microphones, tripods, edit bays and studio time to make their own shows.
