What Happened To TPJC's Very Own "TV CAMPUS"?

It has been a year since the college Film And Photography Society (FAPS) produced its first episode of "TV CAMPUS". The project was undertaken to build a bridge or channel between students and teachers for them to communicate and erase any misunderstandings that lies between them regarding any college issues. Students would be able to view the episodes in the canteen during their breaks.

The demo episode invited students to voice out their opinions concerning the bird faeces issue in college. The video received a total of 1,627 views and was favourited 5 times up to date. A 3GP version of the video was also available in school and Tpjcians could obtain it by using their handphones via bluetooth. The video lured compliments from the student population; they found it humorous.



FAPS soon produced its first formal episode which was released during the Teachers' Day concert last year. I was there and the crowd enjoyed every minute of it. Nevertheless, the video fell short of the record 1,627 views set by its predecessor - it only managed to grab 1,213 views in Youtube. It was hosted by former Student Council president, Daniel Lim together with his co-host, Shawn Wee. The video served as a platform for Tpjcians to dedicate their Teachers' Day wishes to their respective tutors and lecturers.



One year later, and a much-awaited sequel never materialised. The Teachers' Day video this year was produced entirely by the 23rd Student Council. The video only featured dedications by the JC1 students, leaving out their seniors. I am not sure what happened to the "TV CAMPUS" proposal. However, if it was true that the proposal was rejected, I may have an answer to why it is so.

I think having a video played in the canteen may not be feasible as students will not be able to hear the audio quality of the video. This is due to the fact that the volume of the plasma televisions are set low to avoid disturbing any ongoing classes near the canteen. This explains why it is not practical to have videos broadcasted there.

Nonetheless, I believe "TV CAMPUS" is a good idea and hope that FAPS can continue the project.

the project looks more like its produced by LONGYIN rather than FAPS, don't you think so?
