I saw this mentioned in POST magazine July 2009.

Everything was shot in anamorphic 16:9 SD.

nine 22-minute episodes culled from 1700 hours of footage!

I thought I'd check out the show.

in a way never before seen on television. Shot at the University of Wisconsin, Madison by the students themselves,

Erin Sperling, a University of Arizona senior, says the first episode was “pretty spot-on” in terms of portraying freshman year at a large university. “It’s one of the first college productions that doesn’t just glorify college as parties and the opposite sex.”

you can get the rest of the episodes on the site too. Just do a search in the upper right for videos.



Amateurish camerawork. At least it is in 16:9. This reminds me why the audio microphones worn on reality TV is important. Even on shows like The Amazing Race. On this you hear a lot of air conditioning fans and they subtitle a lot.

I'm not a fan of "fake" reality shows either (or reality shows in general), but sometimes the "professional" aspects help.
