Not interested in being on camera? There are opportunities to learn how to operate cameras, direct, or even design the set and lighting.

The goal is to create a new television program crewed and hosted entirely by you! Be a part of this CREATIVE and EMPOWERING project! WCTV will provide the coffee!

Membership and Training at WCTV is free to Wilmington residents and can be done at your convenience, in a group, or one-on-one.
