Register for digital media workshops in March

During March, AOC Community Media encourages Acadiana residents interested in production to register for its production workshops. Workshop prices range from free to $60 for AOC members and free to $90 for non-members.

"Our main goal when creating and teaching our workshops is to broaden our members' understanding of concepts they will most likely use to create content for AOC's two television channels which can be accessed on Cox Communications and LUS Fiber," Ed Bowie, AOC's executive director, said. "We hope what we introduce them to will inspire them to continue the learning process throughout their time as producers of local content."
