TUTV, Temple University Television, will present “Welcome to Templeville” in April.
The show allows students to take personal video footage of their own unique block or neighborhood to showcase why it is special to them. To participate in the special, students need to submit an email to TUTV.firstname.lastname@example.org stating where their neighborhood is and what aspects about it contribute to their journey of becoming Philly Made. Those chosen will shoot video of their block or neighborhood using whatever resources are available to them (i.e., iPhone, video camera, etc.). Participants will also edit the footage into 60-second spots to be aired on TUTV and online at templetv.net in April, upon meeting TUTV standards.
“Philadelphia is more than a monolithic city, it’s a tapestry woven of great neighborhoods,” says Paul Gluck, general manager of TUTV. “We designed this project with our partners at PRowl Public Relations to give Temple students a digital platform, from which they can tell stories about the vibrant life you can only find on the streets of this city.”
Many students experience their first time living on their own during their college years. Nothing expresses more of who a student is than the home and neighborhood they live in. Each residence, block and neighborhood limit holds a certain unique quality that can only be shown by the people who live in it. From the subtle apartment in Northern Liberties to the house full of friends a few blocks off campus, TUTV wanted students to capture it and show off just how “Temple Made” their neighborhoods are.
TUTV is Temple University’s digital cable station, broadcasting in the City of Philadelphia on Comcast Digital Cable Channel 50 and Channel 45 on Verizon FIOS. TUTV presents programming about Temple’s surrounding neighborhoods, its international campuses, athletics, new university initiatives, faculty and student research, and more. Temple students, area partners and community affiliates, produce content for TUTV.
