Future Film Makers Update 2/21

These are all the updates from the last two meetings. We’ve been doing a lot.

Two meetings ago we discussed our need for T-Shirts. We’re going to try and have some by April so that we can all wear them for the Admitted Student Day Games. If you’d like to submit a design just jot something on a piece of paper that includes a 1. Film Strip 2. Camera 3. Clapboard and 4. Whatever else you want, just come up with a design that has the club’s name and we’re good! Best one wins a free T-shirt. Or something. They’ll probably be free anyways.

Speaking of First Admitted Student Day, Over the last two meetings we’ve been discussing what game we would do. It’s been decided to do some sort of shoot-em-up. I submitted to SOAP that we’ll be doing an “Action Hero Simulator” so grab your nerf guns and let’s make some cardboard cutouts! Ninjas, terrorists, and Aliens are recommended!

We’re also starting to have workshops, and if we get more attendance to the next couple of meetings we’ll probably start more of them. Writer’s, Storyboarding, and I of course will probably attempt a Fight Choreography workshop. Who knows where that’ll go…

WE NEED FLIERS. Anyone who knows graphic design needs to hop on their computer and print out fliers for the club! The information included on the flier should include…CLUB NAME, TIME of meeting, PLACE, a catchy slogan, what we do, and a bad ass picture of SOMETHING that we can place around campus. It’s gotta be PC guys, other than that, just go crazy because we REALLY need one. Or two, or three!

We also need a flier calling for entries for the Film Festival we’ll be having in March or April. Let’s get that done ASAP so we can start getting entries handed in!

Also be sure to check out strikeaposefilms.com/future-film-makers for our new homepage. You can also go to the forums on the website, register, and post whatever you want about movies or whatever in the forums!

We also filmed a movie! It’s been a while since we’ve done this as a club, but MAN OF ACTION is a huge success, Thomas England plays a great prat-fall character, and I get hit by a car! This video will be showcased on PAC 14 so we’ll be getting a lot of people to see our work very soon! There will also be a video introducing the club to the community thanks to Professor Moeder, Matt, and Thomas, airing in the next few weeks. It will promote us greatly! Maybe we can get some producers.

I’ll be trying to do more saturday filmings like this from now on, probably once a week.

We will be having a movie showing in Fulton Hall 111 this Saturday from 7 to whenever, showing two very exotic and creepy films: Old Boy and Audition. Come for the movies, or come for the free food in between! (If we do not get free food I will go out to little cesars and collect 5 dollar bills for pizzas for everyone myself).

Finally this Sunday or at least sometime within the next 10 days I’d like to maintain an outing to Be Kind Rewind. See the trailers for it if you’ve never heard of it before- this movie is the perfect companion piece to our club.

Alright that’s it for this week, Filmmakers!

  • um i don’t know if you were still thinking of designs. I drew something simple up. I don’t have Adobe photoshop or anything right now, so it’s just a sketch really.

  • That’d be pretty cool. Bring it to the next meeting!
