Since 2012, Alt TV has existed as a space for those interested in developing as television and film producers. The club welcomes aspiring writers, directors, actors, and musicians at any skill level to become a part of this organization. Several past members have gone on to work in the television, film, and video industries.
At the end of every semester, the club sequences the videos into a single quality episode of television and they screen off-campus at a well-attended event. Students, faculty, staff, community members, and everyone are welcome to attend the free screening. Read the story about the Spring 2016 screening in our news blog.
The meetings happen at 8 p.m. every Wednesday in Coleman Hall 1721.
