Trojan Vision Turns Fifteen

Award-Winning Student Television Marks Anniversary

Students working at the USC School of CInematic Arts’ television station Trojan Vision have a simple rule. When you are doing your day-to-day activities, you’re a normal student. When you’re at the station, you’re a professional. On April 6 the award-winning station will be celebrating its fifteenth anniversary with a gathering at the station’s headquarters in the Robert Zemeckis center for Digital Arts.

"After 15 years, my greatest gratification is when one of our students tells me how things that they experienced at Trojan Vision made the difference as they climbed the ladder in their career path,” said Don Tillman, Executive Director of Trojan Vision.

Trojan Vision’s programming is produced exclusively by USC students and broadcasts in HD on cable Channel 8.1, reaching more than 29,000 students and 18,000 university employees. It also broadcasts to the greater Los Angeles area on LA36, reaching over 1.8 million homes, and streams live 24/7 on trojanvision.com.

Trojan Vision was launched in 1997 by USC’s Annenberg Center for Communication. In 1999 USC received a gift from director and SCA alum Robert Zemeckis for the development of a state-of-the-art digital training facility, to which Trojan Vision was relocated. In 2006, Trojan Vision joined the School of Cinematic Arts.
