Community - 2011

Traditionally, public television has produced content and sent it out to the community. Now we're looking for community groups to produce their own content on issues that concern them.

If your organization is interested working with the Hamilton Commons, contact us at 215-351-3318.

Rosemont College

The Public Media Commons partnered with Rosemont College to offer a course in developing book trailers, promotional videos for books, for graduate students enrolled in the publishing program at the college. PMC staff taught courses in developing and creating book trailers, and the students conceptualized, shot, and edited their own trailer for a book of their choice. Many of the trailers have been optioned by the publishers in order to promote the books.
