Volunteering projects

project description

The “Open Channel of Wettin” (“WTV - Der Offene Kanal aus Wettin”) has been providing for citizens, the so-called ‘users’, access to the know-how and the technical equipment for the production of video/movies since 1992 free of any charge. The productions are broadcasted via terrestrial television signal in Wettin, via internet streaming (see: and partly via YouTube. For their production the "OK" offers its users professional film equipment, several film editing suites, a film studio and the support of trainees in media design and volunteers with experience in the area of film/TV production.
In this way film clips in high professional standard, partly in feature-length, and in different formats (reports, documentary and animation films) are produced. The range of topics is very broad and depends primarily on the personal interest of the users.
