Telluride TV, the region’s public access station, has long operated out of the Telluride High School, editing content, broadcasting programs and offering media arts education in a small space crammed with equipment.
The space worked fine in the past, but with an expanding vision of what it wants to offer the community, Telluride TV has outgrown it. The non-profit station is moving into a larger spot in August, and plans to turn it into a full-fledged community media center. Telluride TV’s vision is to create a center with a live television studio and video editing bays along with professional cameras for the public to use and a range of educational opportunities for both students and adults.
Thanks to an agreement with the R-1 School District, Telluride TV has the space secured. But it needs help with funding for equipment, and it has launched a capital campaign to raise $50,000.
Telluride TV’s Executive Director Katie Karow said that with Telluride’s strong ties to filmmaking — through Mountainfilm, Telluride Film Festival and other things — a media center makes a lot of sense.
