The Producer Program

An Austin Public Producer is an individual who becomes certified to use the video production resources at Austin Public, and cablecasts portions of their content onto Austin Public channels.

In order to participate in the Producer Program at Austin Public, you must attend an Orientation class. New Producers will be provided with details about accessing the resources available at the facility and walked through the process of joining at the end of the session (please bring proof of identity and residency to the class). For more info or to upload your scanned documents please use our Producer Documents Form.

Scholarship Eligibility: Individuals who earn 80% of the current area median family income or less are eligible for a sliding scale scholarship. Please click here to determine if you qualify. To apply for a scholarship, click here.

Please note that our Media Policy class is required and allows Producers to submit content for channel distribution, use our edit lab and conference room. Certification courses are required to access the resources (studios and production equipment). Please read our FIRST STEPS packet to find out more about the Producer Program.
