Tell Your Story
ʻŌlelo’s suite of services can be customized to meet your individual and organizational needs. Our full service Community Media Centers (CMC) are equipped with everything you need – from live, in-studio, green screen capabilities to mobile production units and vans. Whether your creative vision is a Public Service Announcement, narrative short, or long-form documentary, we are here for you!
All media, shows, and programs created using ‘Ōlelo’s equipment and facilities are 100% owned by you! Our only stipulation is that your program airs on ‘Ōlelo first with no commercial content. Once it is aired, we encourage community producers to use their creations in ways that support and advance their message, and to share their work via their own outlets.
Things You Should Know
Prior to taping, liability forms are signed. Community producers are fully liable for all the content generated by their program. We ask individuals and organizations interested in using our facilities to be mindful of the following:
Commercialism – Use of ‘Ōlelo facilities to generate revenue, promote a for-profit business, publicize a company in exchange for services or fees, refer viewers to a point-of-sale, or other non-public service uses are unacceptable. You will be charged fair market value for use of the facilities, and future access to ‘Ōlelo resources may be denied. If you think your content may be considered commercial, please talk to ‘Ōlelo staff.
Copyright – Use of copyrighted materials (music, photos, etc.) without written permission is a violation of federal law.
Unprotected Speech – There are certain types of speech that are not protected under the First Amendment. Invading someone’s privacy, producing obscene or indecent material, inciting others to riot, and making slanderous or libelous allegations are examples of unprotected speech. Using unprotected speech opens you to the possibility of both criminal charges and/or civil lawsuits.
Anonymous Speech – All ‘Ōlelo programming must include contact information at the end of each program for viewers with questions or comments about your program. This contact info (or ‘End Slate’) must include your O‘ahu mailing address and/or telephone number; an e-mail address or website is optional, but not a substitute.
