Campus Movie Fest at BSC
Since I've been a freshman here at BSC, every year the school hosts the likes of Campus Movie Fest. CMF is a unique opportunity for students here at BSC to get a chance to shoot their very own 5 minuet long film. CMF sets students up with the proper equipment needed to shoot their film (camera, editing software, microphones, etc.). Each team has 1 week to film their movie and edit it before passing in the final work. Films can range from drama to comedy, to musicals to horror, its up to the student. It seems to me that CMF has grown over the past few years. I know this year on one of the films I was working on, our team leader said that when he signed up out team there were already 40 other movies signed up to be made. After the week of filming and editing, the movies are screened and selected. 16 of the films are played at the RCC for a showing for the entire school. Out of these films awards are given that hold some great prizes and even a trip to New York City to have your movie played in a larger festival. Anyone that has not participated in CMF I highly suggest that you look into when they roll around next year. Its a great opportunity to have your name on something that you can truley call your own, and its a lot of fun.
