This year, as a part of that mission, we're sponsoring several events and initiatives throughout the year.
This year the Indy Filmmakers Training Sessions return -- but including experienced guests -- and open to the broader community. These sessions will be limited to a smaller audience, so be sure to register soon (email us at the address located on the right hand side of this blog).
Also this year, we'll kick off the year with a series of lunches that re-screen the films shown in last year's Open Frame. The films will be followed by a Q & A with many of the filmmakers. Each lunch will be held in the Brehme Center. Carry your lunch in from the cafeteria and watch a film or two, and then enter the dialogue.
Each year the Communication Arts Department sponsors one or two student films. The sponsorship includes a $500 budget, use of the Open Frame HD camera, full support of the Malone IT department, a modest light kit, priority access to Final Cut editing studio and mentorship and production help from faculty members.
Interested students should submit:
scripts (if you want to be a writer type it up using CELTX.COM free screenwriting software),
director’s reels (go shoot something beautiful right now if you don’t already have something you’re proud of),
producer’s applications (turn in your name, contact information and a statement about why you’d like to be involved.)
Your application materials are due on October 26th at 5 pm. The Winners of the contest will be announced on November 2, here on the Open Frame Blog.
