Telluride TV's is in the final phase of renovating a high school classroom into a Community Media Center. The center will be used for adult and student media arts education including video camera and editing courses. A green cyclorama wall was built in the facility and will be used for student news programs and other locally produced shows created by people living in Telluride and the surrounding community. There is also an area with a black curtain back drop for filming panels of presenters.
This summer, Telluride TV is producing a live weekly show, "Telluride Weekly" showcasing events and happenings in the Telluride region. Telluride TV's production staff will work with high school and college interns who want to pursue a career in film/Television by providing hands on camera, editing and interviewing experience in a fun and structured environment. It will be an exciting opportunity for students to be involved with all the exciting festivals, people and events that makes Telluride such a unique place and gain production experience for their resume.
Coming this fall, the Media Center will offer studio rental rates for photographers, videographers and anyone interested in learning how to create their own show.
