Immense Possibilities has found a new home on the campus of Southern Oregon University.
Now entering its fourth season, Immense Possibilities is a co-production of Southern Oregon Public Television and Ashland-based television producer Jeff Golden. Starting this season, IP will be produced at the state-of-the-art television production studios of the university’s Southern Oregon Digital Media Center.
Celebrating the new partnership, Golden met with SOU president Mary Cullinan and SOPTV Chief Executive Officer Mark Stanislawski on a new student-created virtual set last Friday, and also witnessed the production of new episodes of Immense Possibilities to debut in January and February.
In addition to enabling IP to enhance the visual appeal of the show with innovative virtual set technologies, SOU’s participation in this partnership also creates opportunities for dozens of students to gain real-world experience in television production, on-air presenting and social media campaigning.
The partnership also reflects one of the principal goals of Immense Possibilities: to bring together community activists of different generations to support and learn from one another.
Immense Possibilities, SOU and SOPTV are also expanding the reach and visibility of the program this year, including the addition of new broadcast markets in Redding, Calif.; Portland, Ore.; and all across Oregon via Oregon Public Broadasting. The partnership also provides expanded local availability of IP on Rogue Valley Community Television.
Immense Possibilities is a weekly public TV and Internet visit with guests whose social creations are building vibrant communities. They solve challenges that the old systems can’t. They infuse others with realistic hope and invite them to come alive.
