We hope everyone’s getting together and making their groups for the 48 Hour Video Race with Jeff Gordon Chevy this weekend! Don’t forget that we’re kicking off this race on Friday at 6pm in Morton 100! Then, on Saturday, groups will get to take out cars to make their videos, courtesy of the dealership. This all culminates on Sunday at 6pm in King Hall Auditorium with a viewing party to announce the winners of up to $500 worth of prizes and the chance to have their films featured at the Hendrick Auto Dealerships!
We’d like to welcome Joey Bye as our new Fundraising Chair!

Our meeting this Monday is our Pitch Meeting! Bring your best ideas to present to the club!
This weekend has been a super busy weekend for the officers!
On Friday night, Caleb, Kenneth, Carson, Sean, Adam, Nick, Joey, and Liz all headed out to a cabin for the annual Flicker Officer Retreat! (And this year, no one ran out of gas halfway there *coughcoughBeaucoughcough*)
Upon unpacking, things right off the bat got crazy in the awesome way that only our officers could. Caleb was locked out of the cabin as everyone hid in the bathroom, Sean and Kenneth ordered pizza and got a laugh out of the pizza man by dressing Sean up in a ridiculous costume, and some insane props were shared.
Of course, they also got some business done, talking about their goals for themselves as officers and for the club. Some really awesome ideas came up that they’re excited to put into practice this year!
The rest of the night was spent making a short film that we’re debuting at tonight’s meeting – so make sure you’re in Morton 100 at 8pm!
The next morning (after maybe 3 hours of sleep – if that), after a fire alarm adventure
and breakfast, the officers discussed expectations for themselves and then headed back to campus to discuss Flicker productions and to update some policies – but more about that at our Pitch Meeting next week!
All around, it was a fun officer retreat. Our verdict? A success!
We’ve had three orientations so far, and we are so glad to have a bunch of enthusiastic newcomers to welcome into our group!
Check out our photos below – try to find yourself and your friends!

Special thanks to Carson Roach-Howell for putting this together!
Welcome back Flicker kids! It’s been a long time since there’s been a blog but truth be told not has been going on. Our first meeting was replaced by an outing to see “her.” If you haven’t seen it yet you better give it all the money you have.
But let’s move on to discussing our first official meeting of the semester. For the first meeting we re-stated our mission statement:
1. To achieve a greater understanding of the filmmaking processes and all things related.
2. To learn more about various film modes, genres, theories, and forms.
3. To create a vibrant community of filmmakers and film lovers. To have a friendly and welcoming place for us to come together.
We have plans for this semester that you’ll see soon.
We also reintroduced everyone in case you forgot. We welcomed the new people. Hopefully they weren’t scared away.
Most of the meeting was focused on filming a test short for a film Flicker President Aaron Barnett has been thinking about for a while. The short film is made up of selfies and is called, well, “Selfie.” We split up the club into sections responsible for filming their own scenes.
Second Unit has also started a production schedule and so far it has followed it. Filming sketches every Saturday with vlogs being filmed every other Saturday. It’s found its legs this semester.
There’s some cool stuff in the world:
