Fresh tv & YouTube Channel


Fresh TV is taking a new angle this year and will revolve around our YouTube channel. It's clear why this decision has been made; YouTube is one of the most popular mediums in modern day life. It's faster, more accessible, easier to consume and, best of all, anyone can do it. You don't have to be an expert in anything to become a great YouTuber. Instead, you can just get going straight away and learn and develop yourself along the way. 

"Social media — it's the future for the new generations," Cameron Dallas.

You could be part of the future, and help to shape it yourself, by joining our Fresh YouTube team this year. If you love creating videos or find it easy coming up with lots of ideas or write scripts or want to get into producing or pretty much a whole host of other transferrable skills, Fresh YouTube could be for you. You can be as creative as you want and create whatever you want — this is a chance to explore any and all ideas you have and to truly build and shape our YouTube channel like no one has before.

Roles

Channel Manager (CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE)

You will be in charge of the running of the channel and each show, ensuring everything runs smoothly. Maintaining consistency and allocating and planning shows will be crucial. There should be, at the very least, two excellently produced shows a week. A news show, for example, is a show which can easily be continued every week as a series, but it doesn't have to be a news show. If a student is doing a news show it MUST be accurate. All videos posted will be a reflection of the RSU. You can invent and create what you feel appropriate; creativity is key.

Fresh Squeeze was very successful, as was Round Up with sabbatical officers — look into improving and continuing these as well. It's a good idea to look at other University, student-led shows and YouTube channels for ideas and inspiration. Don’t be afraid to copy someone else’s idea and make it your own. Fresh TV is without a doubt the most popular channel of Fresh and it’s much easier to engage with students through this medium — our focus on YouTube will only improve that. Don't be afraid to ask for help and contributions; Jonas, Comms Coordinator, is also available if needed. It would be a good idea to learn how to use Adobe Premier Pro and other such programmes. 

 

Head of Marketing and Social Media

A key part of this role will be to create and maintain a regular release and circulation of videos, across all social media platforms You will need to publicise the content produced and build a following of consumers. The YouTube channel and website should be up to date at all times and there should always be something to watch. It is okay to repost old videos, if it fits the occasion. Work closely with the other social media people and the Fresh Network Manager to make sure the website always looks its best and is being updated regularly. Videos should be posted to every Facebook page where it will earn the most views, such as the Freshers and College pages. It would also be smart to post content to all members of Fresh Network and get them to share it. You will need to build up a network of your contacts within Fresh Network and the university in order to maximise the publicity Fresh TV's content can get.

 

Head of Technical Operations

This person should already know the basics of Adobe apps such as Premier Pro and After Effect, as well as others. The Head of Technical Operations will be expected to help edit most videos, to a high standard of quality. It would also be helpful to teach other members of Fresh TV about editing and Adobe apps. You should have a keen eye for detail and will be able to take a good piece of content and improve it with your own work and skills.

I wasn’t really into school that much. I was in this building having to cram knowledge I didn’t really care for. But on YouTube, I was able to create what I wanted and post it for people to enjoy and share my creations
