A PSA or Public Service Announcement is a commercial or advertisement designed to attract a viewer's attention to an important issue or concern. PSAs are usually very short (30 seconds to 3 minutes) and generally have a persuasive message. Some PSAs want viewers to take action, while others are designed to inform viewers.


[edit] How to make a PSA unit

  • Storyboard and/or write a script for your PSA
  • Film using a video camera
