If you need any help finding it, contact Media Manager Liz Bernardo and she will be glad to help you! This meeting is going to be full of introductions and reminders for the semester, so it would be helpful to prep by checking out our production proposal guidelines, equipment checkout guidelines, and announcement request guidelines! (And if you don’t, no big deal – we’ll recap it all in detail at the meeting!)

Don’t forget that the winner of our Bite Size Horror contest, Ebolene, will be playing at Lumina before The Exorcist today at 5:15pm!

We’ve also got a movie night of Monday at 8pm in Crossing 3 – we’ll be having a super-charged viewing of The Avengers!

Something New is Coming…

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!

Our meeting this Monday is our Pitch Meeting! Bring your best ideas to present to the club!

Officer Retreat Recap

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*)

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

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

Some of us had trouble getting up...

Some of us had trouble getting up…

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!

Night of the Living Dead!

Thank you to everyone who came out to our Night of the Living Dead Labor Day Movie Night! We weren’t able to take many photos, but if you took any photos (or just want to share your experience) please email us at flickeruncw@gmail.com!
