Interested in learning more about studio trainings and productions at Open Signal? Attend this info session to get all the details!

Get the rundown on our studios in this information session! Learn how you can become studio certified, volunteer on an existing production, join the crew on our upcoming Open Playground studio production sessions or how to produce your own show. We'll walk through the process and answer any questions you may have.

Open Signal's studios are available to our studio-certified members to produce their own content for cable broadcast or join the crew on an existing Open Signal series. We offer a 4-part series of Studio Volunteer Trainings to certify members for use of the studio. Reservations are also open to members who became studio certified before 2020 once they schedule a studio refresher, which can be done by contacting our front desk at info [at] opensignalpdx.org or by calling (503) 288 - 1515.

Instructors

Vo McBurney Studio Productions Coordinator & Trainer vo [at] opensignalpdx.org

As the Studio Productions Coordinator & Trainer, I am here to ensure that your studio productions are a success. I can help you with everything from reserving your gear to answering (and solving) your HD studio questions.

I currently teach the Intro to Studio Production class, and am proficient in all of the gear that we have in our equipment library so feel free to reach out with any technical questions. I'm more of a Star Wars guy than a Star Trek guy, but I've been known to hang out with a few Trekkies.

I teach a slough of media education courses and help create trainings and curriculums focused on technical skill-building and equitable education practices for instructors, volunteers, and partnerships. I have worked in media arts education for over a decade and can help you find the education path at Open Signal that best fits your goals.

I also currently serve on the board of directors at KBOO Community Radio, earned a BFA in Filmmaking and Social Justice at Evergreen State College and produce a music television show in the vein of Soul Train at Open Signal.
