This past weekend we had a wonderful turn out of our Oscar Party Event! It was a great way for everyone to settle down, relax, and watch some brilliant filmmakers reap the rewards of their hard work. We laughed, we cried, but we mostly laughed. Some our of predictions were met, some surprises well, surprised us. It's something to look forward to down the road as we all hope to someday be on that stage accepting an award. Here's a short video from the event:
So, What's Next?
Coming up at the end of this month we have a 24 hour film festival coming up! Teams will have 24 hours to write, shoot and direct an original short film. Guidelines and restrictions will be given the day of. When I was in the Film LLC last year as a resident, this was one of the biggest highlights of their year. It was amazing to see what everyone could create in just 24 hours!
To Infinity, and Beyond!
This past weekend, Production Club just wrapped production for this years short film, "Space Cadets". Production Club gives students a chance to get some real hands-on experience working on a real film set. Students are able to work with industry standard equipment, make connections, and have fun. Throughout the year, Production Club also has various guest speakers come and talk or give demos. For example, Jon Kline, a professional cinematographer came in to put on a lighting demo. There's only so much you can learn in class, Production Club helps teach you what you can only learn with hands-on experience.
