To our BATV members, friends & families,
Wishing you happiness, health and peace this holiday season.
May you find joy, have blessed holiday celebrations, and embrace the natural wonder of the celestial gifts the season brings.
Stay safe until we can gather again to celebrate in person.
In the meantime, click below to invite the community into your
home, virtually of course, with the BATV Holiday Greetings.
It's BATV Holiday Greetings time again! Of course with this being a different kind of year,
BATV is offering a virtual Zoom Holiday Greetings Night on December 10th from 6-8 pm.
Drop-in anytime during those hours and BATV staff will be on hand to record your holiday greetings. Dress up in your favorite holiday attire, sing a song, read a poem, or just say "hi" to the community.
You can even just stop in to the Zoom meeting to say hi to staff and other members and/or simply watch. We will be editing and putting all of the Greetings together and airing them during the holidays.
If you can't make that date and/or wish to do a Holiday Greeting on your own,
they can be submitted here. If you opt to film a greeting on your phone, we recommend
filming horizontally, in a well lit, quiet environment. Be sure to leave a couple of seconds at
the beginning and end of your recording so we can transition the footage as needed.
Be sure to submit them before the end of the day on Tuesday, December 15.
Thank you and we hope to see you all at the Zoom Holiday Greetings!
You can join the Zoom meeting here. If prompted for a passcode, it's 704491.
Feel free to RSVP to the Facebook Event for reminders.

Curbside Service for Field Gear
Beginning Wednesday, June 24, BATV members will have the opportunity to check out field production equipment. At this time, BATV will be limiting the amount of gear for field use so we have made up some simple camcorder kits that we feel will assist members to achieve their field production needs.
If you would like to reserve a kit, please email your request to email@example.com. You will receive correspondence with specific directions about picking up your equipment. For everyone’s safety, we ask that you comply with all directions for pick up and return of equipment and adhere to the scheduled pick up and return days and times.
We will continue to assist with productions utilizing web conferencing apps, so if you have ideas for programming, don’t hesitate reaching out to staff.
We will keep you posted as other resources become available, but for the safety of all, it will be a cautious process.
We look forward to seeing all our members in the near future.
