1/ EQUIPMENT:

  • Equipment to produce the public service announcement can be borrowed from Pendergrass or the Hodges Studio.
  • Be sure to find out what equipment is available, loan periods or reservation options well beforehand.

2/ How to create a Public Service Announcement or PSA

Searching TIP for all platforms:  The acronym PSA is used often --but not always-- in the popular and research literature and on Web sites.  Therefore, searching for the acronym PSA will retrieve a lot --but not all-- relevant information. 

Searching for just PSA might be sufficient for this assignment. 

In general it is a best practice to spell acronyms out when searching and use OR operator:

public service announcement OR PSA
