Student Led, Student Made

“We are Torch TV with a long track record for producing television by University of Hull students, for University of Hull students. Whether it’s documentaries, interviews, sports coverage, public service broadcasting or drama, Torch TV is where many budding screenwriters, producers, actors and directors cut their teeth on their first screen projects.

But we need your support to help our creatives make the best projects they can. We’re asking for £1,400 so that we can repair, replace and update essential equipment such as microphones and cameras. Can you help?”

Station Manager - Ellis Leonard

I'm the manager of Torch Television for the year 2019/20. I have high aims and expectations of Torch TV, and I want to put us directly into the minds of all Students on Campus. After I took up the role I began thinking how I could shape Torch TV for the future, which began with an entire rebrand.  I'd like to introduce you to my team!

Our Vision

We operate on the basis of; Student Led, Student Made. We wish to showcase the talents of Students from across the wide variety of us that exists on campus. The ability to showcase what students are doing, the changes being made, the careers being forged, the personalities that exist here. 

  • We are creating a wide variety of Television Grade content
  • We are forging our own paths to our careers, and in doing so are able to develop ourselves
  • All donations help fund equipment, allowing us to achieve Higher Quality video

Where will the money go?

  • Minimum Funding allows us to replace equipment which is broken
  • Full Target allows us to replace all equipment, and funds new cameras which in turn increase our production quality
  • Any extra funds will be used to purchase more cameras to replace our current ones, and would be put towards future content such as; Upgrading our Editing Suite, Upgrading Lighting Equipment
  • Every time we create and publish a new video there will be an update, with the video and behind the scenes photographs to see what we are up to!
  • Things we are trying to raise fund to purchase for:
  • Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera: £1,170
  • Batteries for Lights (Outdoor Use) £80
  • Boompole £89
  • Tripods £3
  • Field Monitor £150
  • Adapters for Boom Pole £40
  • Microphones £100 each
  • New Lighting Rigs £100+ each


We have several levels of rewards for anyone and everyone who donates! We would be more than gladly to offer our services as a Media Production Team for donations, and we are also fully open to accepting sponsors!
