While attending college, it is important and widely encouraged that students go beyond their comfort zone and join a club, a team, or any kind of extracurricular program that interests you on campus. Just like your favorite food, at one point it was something new, something strange, that you hadn’t ever tried before but you went ahead and took that bite anyway. And now reflect on that moment, maybe a nerve wracking few seconds that paid off in the long run, because your relationship with chocolate chip cookies has really blossomed into something special. Apply this scenario to a club here at New York Institute of Technology. You’ll never know what you are missing out on until you take that leap.

Perhaps a leap that lands you on the set of a student run web channel and gives you the creative platform to help program a unique show every week, connecting with a global audience. What about directing the show and being the field general inside a TV studio? Do you want to know what it’s like writing a script and getting in front of the camera to announce the breaking story? There are many different tasks conducted over the course of a week such as covering all NYIT athletics, conducting interviews and capturing the best game footage? These are all taking place at the Old Westbury campus as a part Globesville. The team meets on Wednesdays and Thursdays in Education Hall and broadcasts 6 separate programs that go live, and can be viewed worldwide on their website globesville.com. Show topics range from Movies, Video Games, and NYIT/Professional Sports, Local News, and campus specials. The group is open to all students and can be taken as a club or for credits towards your chosen major. It is a fun and exciting opportunity to gain real world studio experience that not every college offers and should be taken advantage of by students of all majors, not just those studying Communication Arts.

“Joining Globesville was the highlight of my college experience because I gained hands on experience in television production. Just two weeks into the class I was producing and directing my very own show.” said Zach Levatino, former Globesville member and NYIT graduate.

Globesville gives students hands on interaction with state of the art cameras, editing and graphic software on the newest Mac computers, lighting equipment, set design, and audio operations. Each show has a team of 4-6 fellow students that brainstorm and are responsible for running a quality segment for the week to fill an hour long program using their own recorded material, scripts, sound effects, graphics and their relative style. To start the day, the entire staff meets to discuss public outreach aspects of each show, Globesville as a whole, and what kind of message we are trying to spread campus wide using promo videos, brochures, flyers etc. From there, a pre-production overview takes place and final changes or adjustments are made. The crew then heads into the live studio and prepares their broadcast. Loading backgrounds on their green screen, looking over the script, loading images and graphics for the show, communicating with show talent, and monitoring audio levels. Once the show is over, the team reflects on what worked, what didn’t, and how they can make the show better and begin to map out ideas for the next week ahead.

The Globesville web channel has been around since 2011 and is only getting better with age thanks to the great professors involved. Professor Julia Price, James Fauvell, Donald Fizzinogila, Andre Doughty, and Herb Savran. If you’re interested in joining and have further questions or curiosities the Globesville team can be reached at globesville@gmail.com, check out their website and be sure to tune in to your favorite shows being aired live 24/7 on globesville.com, or stop by Ed Hall to take a firsthand look at what goes down. We are always happy to have new students eager to collaborate and earn some true hands on practice in a field that has the largest voice. Come find out if the future of broadcasting is right for you.

Don’t forget to keep an eye out for flyers around campus explaining how your #GlocalMoment could win you a Sony Action Cam, plus $100 dollar gift cards to B&H all thanks to Globesville!
