Happy New Year Guilford!
We are looking forward to another year of serving the Guilford community, connecting with old friends and making new ones. GCTV is media by and for the Guilford community. Our mission is to provide you with the tools and training to share what matters most to you.
What would you like to see more of on the GCTV channels in 2016? Concerts, sports, spiritual discussion? How about health and wellness news? How-to videos or man-on-the-street discussion of town events.
All of this is possible when there are community members interested enough to produce the content! GCTV has the gear and the expertise to train you. Contact us with your ideas and we will show you how to make it happen.
To assist you with your planning check out our production calendar below (a.k.a our studio office hours). These are the times when you can make an appointment to come in for training, use the studio, edit or pick up field equipment. Facility use is on a first come, first served basis so book time in the GCTV calendar as soon as an event is booked in your calendar.
It is recommended that if you are promoting an upcoming event you plan to have the completed production to us 3 weeks prior to the event date. This means plan on filming the promo 4-6 weeks prior to the event date. This is to allow enough time for the video to be broadcast to the community.
Videos that are not time sensitive can have a longer production timeframe. This lessens the pressure on new producers just learning the process and provides a little breathing room for seasoned producers wanting to try something new without a looming deadline.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your project idea. We look forward to working with you.
The GCTV broadcast schedule has been published! A new schedule starts tonight at midnight and changes again at midnight on Friday and Sunday.
We have new programs from First Baptist Church of Branford and Bethel Assembly of God. Catch up on budget talks and the BOE hearing on new school times. Swaggy Llamas, peace and cooking round out the week’s line up.
We are heading into the New Year with new health and wellness programming coming soon as well as news from the Guilford Foundation and Guilford Community Fund.

On Monday, September 21st GCTV Board member Al DiMarzio and GCTV intern Sam Stark visited the United Nations in NYC for the student observance of World Peace Day.
Below are some excerpts of the day’s events. GCTV invites you to Speak Your Peace and share with the Guilford community, “What does peace mean to you?”
A new series of concerts is coming to the shoreline starting this month! This video talks about Project Music Heals Us, an initiative to bring healing music to those who would not otherwise be able to access it. Concerts will occur throughout the year, so please also look for Save the Date videos so you can mark your calendars.
This program was filmed in the GCTV studio and edited with the assistance of GCTV student interns.
