Welcome back

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.

He’s so damn serious about his selfies.

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.
