There’s only 4 days left in this quick production period – and today begins the final weekend you’ll have to work on your movies. Many an incredible Froshlife movie has been written, acted, filmed and edited in the final weekend of Froshlife, so even if you haven’t gotten too far, don’t worry, you’re probably not alone.
Here are a couple points you should all keep in mind:
– Movies are Due in just a few short days! All completed movies and all equipment must be returned to the MPS lab in Lilly Library on Tuesday, Feb. 7th between 12 and 4pm. If you have any questions about any step of the process, don’t hesitate to visit the MPS lab between now and Tuesday or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can view the MPS Schedule here. Be sure to give yourself enough time for exporting! And remember, everyone included needs to have a consent form filled out. If you run out, you can grab extras from the Resources page (and while you’re there, there’s some other good production info too).
– Need a pep talk? Yesterday and today, I posted two notes from two previous Froshlifers with their best advice for you guys as you hunker down for the final weekend of production. Check out the note from Andy Chu of Pegram, who wrote the score for last year’s amazing musical “Apples”, and make sure to read the note from Billy Baumgartner of Wilson, whose tech-savvy “Chroma” won Best Movie, People’s Choice, and Best Editor. They have some really great, down-to-earth, get-it-done advice.
– Need some prize motivation? – Check out our sponsor page to see what organizations are offering up prizes to this year’s winners. Savvy minds can probably suss out a few of the prizes by the sponsor list, but just to whet your palette a bit – I just got the shipping notification for a box of shiny Apple equipment headed my way for a couple lucky winners care of lynda.com (which, by the way, has hundreds of hours of video tutorials that could help your production process – and it’s available free to all Duke students).
We’ll be posting a bunch more stuff on our facebook page as we ramp up to the Premiere so make sure you visit us and like us there.
