ways to support us
Make a TV show
MCAT offers a studio with three cameras, title graphics, green screen and computer controlled lighting. Our cable distribution network is connected to over 10,000 households in the Missoula area so your content can go far. Your show could be about your passion, a hobby, making music, spirituality, politics and really whatever you would like to share with the Missoula Community.
Attend a workshop
MCAT offers our media training classes for free. You can choose to learn about cameras, special effects, studio recording or podcasting. When you learn about how media is created you also learn a lot about decoding and analyzing the messages directed at you everyday.
Donate to our scholarship fund
MCAT offers week-long workshops for kids in the summer. We work with the after-school program Flagship to keep kids learning and thriving in those key hours after-school and before parents have finished work. Your donation can pay for an after-school activity or a week-long adventure in media creation for a Missoula student.
