January Blog Post

Happy New Year WYOU community! A great deal is going on at WYOU these days. Our Kickstarter fundraiser will be up and running by the beginning of March.  This online fundraiser will allow us to upgrade to HD cameras, new Mac editing stations, wireless microphones, new monitors, and a mixing board upgrade. We’ll let you know how you can help as March draws closer. All this new equipment should bring in both old and new members. Another event you might want to be a part of is WYOU’s annual membership meeting at the end of  February. We will be contacting all members after we finalize our venue.
Teach and Learn at WYOU!
Part of what we do at WYOU is not just to bring you content on your television but to empower you to create content yourself. WYOU’s friendly and knowledgeable instructor Robert will be teaching 3 Camera/Videography classes along with 3 Video Editing classes this spring. Camera/Videography classes will be held at 5:30 to 8:30 on February 21st, April 18th, and May 23rd. Our Video Editing classes will be held at 5:30 to 8:30 on February 28, April 25, and May 30th.  Go to WYOU’s website to sign up.
For WYOU summer youth video production classes go to Wisconsin Youth Company’s website at, to discover what’s available when this summer’s schedules of classes are posted.
Think you have a skill that WYOU members could benefit from? Let us know. We are always looking for people to teach new classes. If the board approves your class you can even earn money based on how many people sign up for your class.
Stay warm friends of WYOU, and always be recording!
