Students from Glyndŵr University have created GTV, an exciting new online television website for Wrexham, all about Wrexham!
The website at wearegtv.com is full of videos about Wrexham businesses, landmarks, history and acts as a showcase for student projects.
At its launch on Friday 26 April 2013 at the Creative Industries Centre at the Uni, Catherine Devlin and Adam Perryman, the Broadcasting and Journalism students leading the project, revealed the new website.
Originally the brainchild of Melanie Salisbury in 2010, its purpose is to become the missing communication link between students and the Wrexham community. The students are very passionate about growing the site with community content and making it interesting and useful for residents and tourists.
Catherine and Adam urged the audience of local business owners, students and stakeholders to create their own content for the website and send it to them for inclusion.
GTV already includes Wrexham County Borough Council's excellent 'Wrexham Says Hello' campaign video, which was filmed and produced by Holly, Graham and Alan at Minimal Media - 3 ex students from Glyndŵr University who worked together on their final project and went on to form their own filming and production company.
Glyndŵr University’s senior lecturer in broadcasting and media communications Sally Harrison, said “What is so encouraging about this project is that it is entirely led by Glyndŵr University students who understand the power of digital inclusion”. The project is also supported by the North Wales Film and Photography Collective and Communities 2.0.
So if you have a video about your business, project, interest or anything related to Wrexham to add to the website, email firstname.lastname@example.org
