Flicker Film Society: Weekly Blog 8/7/13

It’s been a while since the last proper blog so let’s start off by talking about our Sunday.

Carson playing dead.

On Sunday we wrapped on “No More Wishes.” We filmed on campus around Bluethenthal Wildflower Preserve and the fountain by Fisher. We decided to just make stuff up with this shoot. Seth did “the burnie” and Caleb lay on the ground strewn with wet coins. This shoot was all about having fun and we did.

Pitches. (I needed two pictures for the blog.)

Last Monday we opened the floor up to the members to pitch whatever ideas they have. Officers Kevin Bahr, Adam Getz, and Seth Photopoulos served as panel members to lead discussions about the pitches. We had a successful night and a lot of people showed interest in the projects that were presented. Many of them went off to form production groups within the Flicker community.

We had the 24 Hour Video Race planned out but it ended up falling through. There were too many other events going on at the same time as well as some poor planning. Good news is that we are planning to do it later this Fall. Another announcement is that Flicker officers Beau Mumford and Seth Photopoulos are putting together a sketch comedy group called Second Unit Productions. They will meet every Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. in Kenan 1005 to brainstorm and produce sketches.

This is a short blog this week. If you’re on Facebook make sure to join our community group page. Like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter. Enjoy your Fall Break!

There’s some cool stuff out in the world:

A talk by Steven Soderbergh on the state of film. 

Inside the Actor’s Studio isn’t just for actors.

Miyazaki with a more western look.

Dustin Hoffman takes acting seriously and you should too.
