Message from your Outreach Coordinator
After serving in various capacities as Equipment Specialist and Staff Producer at HMS, it is my pleasure to continue my work in the role of Outreach Coordinator. We have some exciting things lined up for our producers, including the addition of a Script Writing class and other classes coming up. More information will be available soon.
As we continue to provide you with the tools and resources that you need to create your programming, we want to remind you of some policies that we have always had in place, as well as some new additions with the goal of providing everyone equitable access to gear and the HMS facilities.
- Any request for an extension of an equipment reservation will be considered a Special Request. Community producers are limited to one Special Request per 90-day period. Special Requests may not be used in advance.
- Each community producer may utilize a cumulative maximum of 150 GB of storage space on editing equipment at any one time. This limit is inclusive of internal computer storage, external hard drive space, etc. If producers exceed this limit, data will be deleted in order to maintain the specified 150 GB level.
- In order to register at the Student Rate, community producers must provide one of the following: an ID showing current enrollment at an accredited school (e.g. high school, college, university), a current fee statement issued by such an institution, or a current class schedule.
The complete list of policies can be found in the updated information packet that you received in orientation. Additional copies are available at the equipment desk.
I look forward to continuing the great progress and work done in the Outreach Coordinator position here at Houston MediaSource.
