Alt TV Screens Episode 8 to Capacity Crowd in Downtown Charleston

The Alternative Television and Film Club at EIU screened its eighth episode of original television in front of a capacity crowd at Top of the Roc in downtown Charleston on April 27.

While the upstairs portion of Roc’s Blackfront Restaurant has not been open to the public for the previous six months, they made an exception for Alt TV. The club has now aired all eight of their episodes there, and the crowd of EIU students, community members, and fans of the series has grown with each screening.

The video content of the club is truly independent and alternative as the members of the club create videos for the screening each semester outside of coursework and without external funding. The club works as a collective where members all contribute to the productions of each member.

The content of this screening was incredibly diverse. In addition to their trademark absurd comedy shorts, this episode included political drama, horror, and even an animated short.

In addition to the screening, the leadership of the club transitioned from Kris Wilcox to Ty Yunk, who

will join Dakota Pruemer as co-president of Alt TV. Wilcox, Alt TV’s only four year member, graduated the following week and accepted a position at WCIA in Champaign, IL.

Alt TV will return with Episode 9 during the last month of the Fall 2016 semester. For more information on the club go to https://www.facebook.com/ALTTV
