Hey guys, we’ve got some exciting opportunities for you all this week!
First, the Ann Flack Boseman Gallery is seeking someone to film and edit a short video for the opening of their newest exhibit. This is an opportunity to work with a professional organization and build your resume. The Gallery is also prepared to offer a fixed stipend of $50 for the project.
For this video, they would like some shots of the Juror judging the artwork and some shots of the committee installing the artwork. This will take place on Tuesday the 19th from 3 to 5 PM. The video then needs to be edited and ready to show by Thursday for the reception. During the reception, from 5:30 to 7:00, they would additionally like some footage of the crowd to update the video for the remainder of the exhibit.
If you are interested in this opportunity or want more information, please e-mail Gage Holcomb at email@example.com.
Secondly, Alpha Xi Delta is looking for a student to assist them in filming and editing a recruitment video for the Fall. This would also be a great opportunity for resume building and working with a professional organization. They too are willing to offer payment.
If you’d like more information on this opportunity, please contact Chelsea Payne at firstname.lastname@example.org or (336) 406-2513.
The future of this organization depends on you. We gained officer nominations this past Monday on the 11th, but our numbers were too few to hold legitimate elections. Therefore, officer elections have been postponed to this coming Monday, the 18th, at 8:00 in CIS 1008.
That means you still have time to send in nominations by this Sunday. You still have time to shape the future of this club. If you have any ideas of what you wish Flicker was or what you want Flicker to do, any ideas as to what you wish Flicker didn’t do, any desire to help others become better filmmakers- then become an officer of Flicker Film Society. Be there on the 18th to vote for the future officers.
All nominees should be prepared to give a short speech and answer any questions as to their capabilities or their plans.
Again, our officer positions are as follows:
Media Manager (x2)
On this coming Monday, February 11th, we will be holding officer elections for the 2013-2014 school year. Before the meeting, you may nominate yourself or any other active Flicker member (someone who has paid dues and attends regularly) for any officer position by sending us your nomination by this Sunday the 10th.
If you are nominated, be prepared to give a short campaign speech or say something about your interest in the position on Monday, because we will be asking nominees to give very short speeches and answer questions other members might have. All active members who attend this meeting may vote, and we’ll tally the votes then and there to determine who our officers for the next year will be.
A reminder of our officer positions:
Media Manager 1
Media Manager 2
Once elected, new officers will begin attending officer meetings and undergo training immediately. They will also be in charge of planning this Spring’s 48-Hour Video Race to begin preparing them for their duties next year.
That’s “Flicker Presents,” as in Flicker presents you with some awesome new opportunities. Not presents as in gifts, although you can take this as a gift as well. Flicker Presents is our new series for 2013 of bringing in people with experience to speak about topics that our members want to know about.
At 8:00 on February 4th, we will be having the first of these meetings. And to start out, Caleb Ward will be coming to speak with us. Caleb has done location scouting for the North Carolina Film Commission and will be talking about how to find great locations for your films. Having a good location is one of the most crucial steps to creating a professional film, so this is a a great opportunity for everyone.
Continuing in our Flicker Presents series, Chris Vickery and Alex Hoelscher will be joining us on the 18th at 8:00. They will be talking about their new short film, “Lucid,” and its unique cinematography. This is a film which was created without the use of artificial lights but looks absolutely beautiful. They will also be discussing the extents of pre-production necessary to make truly good films.
Stay tuned for more information on Flicker Presents. We will have more exciting news ahead.
Production is moving full steam ahead for “Borrowed Time” and “A Most Cherished Moment (Allegedly).” Crews were announced earlier this week and this Monday, the 28th, will be the first production meeting for each film! This is not something you want to miss, because this will be the start of pre-production on your movies. We hope you’re as excited as we are to get to work on these!
If you were unable to be at the previous meeting to sign up and you did not know to e-mail us by Wednesday, it is not too late to help out, so don’t let that stop you from coming out. We can find a place for you on the crew of one of the films- the crews can still use more people.
And the moment you’ve all been waiting for… The two scripts to be produced for Flicker’s large group projects of Spring 2013 are as follows:
A Most Cherished Moment (Allegedly) by Allie Manasco
The story of a young woman’s trip to the store for a home pregnancy test (and the shenanigans involved with it), this sarcastic yet heartfelt comedy playfully examines the fears and societal attitudes surrounding unplanned pregnancy.
Borrowed Time by Chris Vickery
A poignant, character-driven drama about an introverted history enthusiast whose love of stories is misunderstood by the people around him. However, this passion leads him to surprising discoveries as he tracks down the owner of antique pocket watch he finds in a park.
Production will begin on each of these films immediately. If you were unable to be at the meeting tonight, remember that you can e-mail us at email@example.com with the crew position you wish to have on which film and your experience related to that position. If you’re unsure what crew position you want, you can just mention a department. Just be sure to send that e-mail by 5:00 on Wednesday.
Although there are no classes tomorrow for the celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, your celebrations will probably be done by 8:00 on a Monday evening. So be sure to be at CIS 1008 at 8:00 so you can be present for our announcement of the large group projects this semester! We will be announcing two scripts and it will be at this meeting that you can sign up for crew positions for the films.
*However, if you cannot be there for the meeting tomorrow, no worries! We will be announcing the scripts on Facebook, on our website right here, and on Twitter. Also, if you cannot be there but wish to sign up for a crew position, simply e-mail us by 5:30 PM on Wednesday with your name, desired crew position, and your experience related to that position.
Hello everyone. We have a correction about our last post. We will not be announcing our large groups projects this Monday. Not to worry though, as we will be definitely be doing so for the next meeting. Still come out and see the promo videos as well as welcome our new members. See you then!
Welcome back, everyone! Hope you all had a great first day of classes today, but if not, here’s something you can look forward to soon.
Our first meeting of 2013 will be this coming Monday, January 14th, at 8:00. Join us to sign up for crew positions for the two large group projects that we will be producing this Spring and find out what those projects are!
