We had a great first meeting, almost half of you were new and the rest of you were just as, if not more,
beautiful than when we left you. Peter said some stuff, Jim said a lot of stuff, I cracked a few jokes nobody
laughed at. It was a good time for everybody. We talked, met up with people, met new people, it was awesome.
If you missed it here are the major points you need to know:
Next meeting is for pitches. If you want to pitch a short film for this semester please follow the following instructions:
If you're returning: Fill out a form (see below) with your idea and details. Then set up a meeting with an officer by emailing us at the gmail account. In that meeting you'll pitch your film, we'll hear the pitch, then you'll leave, we'll deliberate then get back to you with whether or not it's going to be accepted.
If you're new: Fill out a form (see below) with your idea and details. Next meeting you'll pitch your movie to the club. The club will hear all the pitches then vote on which ones they want to see completed. The most popular ideas will be accepted to be worked on.
If your pitch is not accepted, don't be disheartened. There are still many opportunities to work on other people's films and build your rep so that you can come back next time better than ever. Who knows, you might find an opportunity somehow to make it any way, and that would be totally rad.
The meeting after that is for elections. We'll have more information on that later because this email is getting
a little long, just know that we're having them early because half of our officer board is graduating this semester. Try not to cry for too long. For a good idea of how long you should cry, I only did it for like, 8 days and I didn't even cry once in Les Mis.
Finally some other announcements. Member Patrick O'Connor wants to put together a union of actors and actresses for our club, just so that they have a more coheisive group. You can email him for more information.
So that's everything important. If you couldn't make it this time, we missed you dearly and hope you can make it to the next meeting. If you were there and are planning to attend the next one, we're looking forward to it. If you attended this meeting, but don't plan to attend next meeting, I'm sorry, I know Jim can be pretty intimidating, but he's a real good guy once you get to know him. So yeah, here's to an interesting semester.
