Fall 2010 Recap!

Now that the new semester is quickly approaching as classes will be starting on Jan. 24th I wanted to just look back on the fun things that the Film, Video, and New Genre LLC did at the end of the semester!

North Gives Back in Supermarket Sweep!
Each house in North Tower compete in just half hour to collect as much food from the residents in their house against all the other houses in North Tower. Our house did a great job in collecting food and we had a lot of fun doing it! Overall North Tower collected 7 full grocery carts full of food to donate to those in Milwaukee in need! We even made it in the news!


12 Hour Film Contest!

The residents were randomly assigned teams and given 12 hours to develop an idea for a film, work out the location and props for the film, film the film, edit, and have it ready to present all within 12 hours.
The requirements is their teacher gave them a quote that had to be included into the mix of the film in some way shape or form and be under 8 minutes in length.

This is one of the best events I have done as the residents were active in the event all day. They all worked really well together and got excited. They were supportive of each other and just made the event a blast. We had a screening that night where 3 Judges ( 2 RAs and one of my close friends) selected their favorite. There was also a winner for fan favorite! The residents did great work on putting together these films as we have a talent group of individuals.

Overall we really had a great semester and we are working together to make Spring 2011 and this NEW YEAR even better!

I just wanted to thank all my residents for making this year one of the best!!
