THE TUFTS DAILY

"TUTV Series ‘Pantheon University’ offers a novel take on Greek mythology"

By Jonah Allon

April 19, 2016

"Long before the young adult craze took over bookstores and movie theaters, there was Greek mythology. Endowed with supernatural powers but still unmistakably human in their emotional volatility, gods like Zeus, Hera and Ares were in many ways the forerunners to more contemporary figures like Harry Potter, Bella Swan and Katniss Everdeen. While the youth of these iconic characters made their adolescent struggles relatable, the immortality of the gods always rendered them distant and inaccessible.

But now, the gods are coming of age..."

"Jumbo channel"

By Kristin Livingston, A05

August 3, 2015

"To an outsider, it’s just a room with cracked tiled floors, black walls and a glaring overhead light, plus a few fake potted plants in a corner and large, looming tripods. But to Andy Liebman and Tony Bennis, back for a tour of their old stomping grounds on the third floor of Curtis Hall, the Tufts University Television studio brings back fond memories..."

"Tutv to release new webseries wave jacked"

By Josh Podolsky 

March 11, 2015

"Broadcast television has, for a long time, staunchly held out against the internet revolution, instead choosing to keep its wares off the web for technical and legal reasons. The Average Joe found workarounds to these two hurdles long ago, and thus, in an absurdly simplified manner, the age of internet television was born. Lately, however, the holdouts have begun caving in, with even HBO announcing a standalone online service just this past Monday. Arguably more important than the transition of television to the internet is the creation of television for the internet; Amazon, Hulu, Netflix and RocketJump are just a handful of the better-known names of production companies developing content specifically for the internet. Among these players in the “internet television” genre is Tufts’ own Tufts University Television (TUTV), whose new show “Wave Jacked” premieres March 23..."

"the best vlog reinventions of classic books"

By Kaite Welsh

January 12, 2015

"Judging by the reactions to Zoe Suggs’ and Alfie Deyes’ rising stars, vlogs are the end of civilisation as we know it and – like Zoella’s ghostwritten novel – they certainly don’t have any place in literature. But fresh-faced teens and twentysomethings aren’t only vlogging about their own lives; they’re dressing up as fictional characters and telling modern reworkings of familiar stories into their webcams as YouTube adaptations of classic novels go viral. The teams behind them may be professional actors or simply fans of the books, and the quality of both scripts and production can vary, but at their best they could give the BBC a run for its money..."

"tutv shows consistent growth since inception"

By Lily Hartzell

November 11, 2014

"Founded in April of 1977 by Andy Liebman (A ’78), who went on to direct and edit documentaries for PBS and the Discovery Channel and to found a video collaboration tool called EditShare, Tufts University Television (TUTV) has moved from creating content for a TV station to releasing web series, like the popular 'Jules and Monty'...."

KRISTEN SCHRETTER

kristen.png

Senior Kristen is majoring in Physics, Film and Media Studies, and Music (as long as that’s actually possible). She made the mistake of not joining TUTV until her sophomore year because the 5 minute walk from her dorm was "too far" and "too cold", but now that she's in, she's in for life. Childhood Kristen was a film star, making many home movies with her friends, including classics like an original film titled "Reality is Just an Illusion". Deep.

Needless to say, TUTV has been an amazing learning environment, and Kristen is glad she met such kind, knowledgable, and supportive people who are always looking to help new members get involved. At TUTV she’s been everything from PA to project head, and would love to act as a resource for anyone interested in doing film production, no matter their experience level. Reach out if you have any questions about TUTV or even if you just want to talk about Parks and Recreation or the brief glory for moth memes.

You can reach Kristen at kristen.schretter@tufts.edu or through the TUTV email, tutv.studios@gmail.com.

COLE LOMBARDI

HEAD OF SCRIPTED

IMG_1186.jpg

Cole is a junior from Boylston, Massachusetts. He is majoring in geology and music, (he rocks out) ((sorry)) and has been in TUTV since freshman year. He has found a welcoming, educational, and fun community in TUTV and is psyched to be on board. He has also become an expert in film about, relating to, or influenced by squirrels. This level of mastery has been achieved through TUTV’s pocket doc project (Planet Squirld), Horrorfest (The Ones It Has Taken), and through the original short film A Lover’s Quarrel. He is very excited about this semester and would love to hear lots of new pitches for fun scripted projects! If he could get his ideas through in TUTV, then pretty much everyone has a shot.

Please email Cole at cole.lombardi@tufts.edu if you have any questions about past projects, pitching, or anything else!
