Friday night was the launch of Claremont’s new television channel (which will be hosted on YouTube), Studio 47’s CCTV. We watched two news shorts about the dining halls and on-campus a capella groups, a preview for an action series, and a short comedy bit. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the content, although the production values were a bit low (which was probably because we were only watching pilots, rather than the actual shows). The news was engaging and informative, the action pilot caught my attention, and the comedy sketch actually had me laughing out loud. The rest of the launch consisted of free food and the team asking for writers, actors, editors, etc. (if you are interested, email them at firstname.lastname@example.org). I’m hoping to work with them and use the skills I learned at my Geek and Sundry internship in order to optimize their YouTube channel, and look forward to working with such a promising program.
