#WhoCounts? Barriers to Immigrant Voting in North Carolina

#WhoCounts gives voice to marginalized immigrant communities who seek the same rights as all other U.S. citizens. It focuses on questions of who counts as an American, whose vote counts, and who is doing the counting. TPC is joining other independent media in harnessing the transformative power of journalism to show how people in our Durham community are directly impacted by the political debate on immigration. On Friday, October 14, 2016 the Media Consortium, a national network of independent news outlets, and the People’s Channel, Chapel Hill’s community TV station, co-hosted a press briefing on barriers immigrant citizens face to voting in North Carolina. Watch this video, #WhoCounts North Carolina, to hear how voter rights and changing demographics intersect in North Carolina.

Jeff’s Jog

Here’s a funny video Production Services made for The Chapel Hill-Carrboro Chamber of Commerce. It played at the Business Excellence Awards ceremony as an intro for the MC, Jeff Polish.   The set-up: Jeff was late and had forgotten about hosting the BEA's, so the stage manager makes a phone call from the stage and this video plays on the big screen.  At the end, Jeff ran in and feigned exhaustion.  It was a hit!

Peace and Justice Plaza Ceremony

On October 11, the Town of Chapel Hill honored the legacies of former Town Council member Bill Thorpe and former Tar Heel coach Dean Smith with the addition of their names to a granite marker on the Peace and Justice Plaza at 179 East Franklin Street. Mayor Mark Kleinschmidt offered opening remarks, family members and friends offered fond memories, and UNC's gospel choir gave several inspirational performances.The Peoples Channel's production services team was delighted to have been invited to document this historic ceremony.

National Fabry Disease Foundation Video

The Peoples Channel's Production Services team recently traveled to Greensboro to spend a day at the National Fabry Disease Foundation's annual family conference. The result: this short video designed to raise awareness of and educate people about this invisible, deadly, yet treatable disease. Thank you to all those attendees who took time out of their day to share their stories in front of the camera.
