VETERANS MEDIA SERVICES TO HOLD
VIDEO PRODUCTION COURSE AT
MILWAUKEE COUNTY WAR MEMORIAL
Veterans Media Services, Inc. will be holding its spring 2014 video production course at the Milwaukee County War Memorial in March of 2014. Classes will be held March 1st, 8th, and 15th from 10am until 2pm. These classes are free of charge to Milwaukee area veterans and all are invited to attend.
"We need to empower Veterans and Veterans groups to utilize media resources," Veterans Media Services founder and CEO, David M Ryba, said in a recent interview. "Although mainstream broadcast media is doing more these days to promote and inform the public about veterans and veteran's issues, more needs to be done and that's where we come in," Ryba went on to say.
Veterans Media Services is a non-profit veterans service organization that provides free training to Milwaukee area veterans in the field of video production. Veterans who successfully complete the video production course go on to be certified video producers. Once certified, the veteran producer can use Veterans Media Services production equipment, free of charge, to make their
own TV shows on just about any subject or they can crew on other veteran's productions. Shows will be distributed on You Tube, Facebook, Veterans Media Services website, DVD and Bluray discs.
Veterans interested in signing up for this program may do so by sending an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org and request to be put on the signup list for the spring classes.
Veterans who sign up via email will receive a confirmation email along with prerequisite information for the course.
"I hope many Milwaukee area veterans will take advantage of this existing opportunity to learn a new skill and to become knowledgeable, effective communicators," Ryba asserted. As of this publication Veterans Media Services is the only known veterans service organization in the nation to offer this free service to veterans.
Veterans Media Services is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
