The Varsity is looking for a new Video Editor. It’s a great opportunity for students interested in video to get involved with a media organization, and their videos are very popular. http://thevarsity.ca/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/Video-Editor-Posting.pdf
The Film board has switched to summer hours: http://www.hhfilmboard.com/wordpress/2013/04/23/announcing-summer-hours/
PULP is a paper playground where you can design, dance, and draw on the walls. We are currently looking for shooters familiar with the Film Board’s AC130 camera and event shooting for a trailer for next year’s party and to document this year’s party. This is a volunteer gig but you’ll get in for free (tickets are $15 online, $20 at door) and won’t have to work the whole night, meaning having some time to party! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info. You can find more information about the event here: http://pulpartparty.ca/?utm_source=hhfb&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=pulp
3 Free Double Passes to Kon Tiki
The Film Board has received 3 free double passes for a screening of Kon Tiki at Varsity Cinema on April 29th. Doors open at 6pm and the event starts at 7pm. These passes are first come first serve and available during office hours on Friday and Monday evenings.
We’ve split the lav mics kit into individual cases so you can borrow one if you just need one and leave the other for other people! Check out more info here: http://www.hhfilmboard.com/wordpress/2013/04/20/lav-mics-get-their-own-cases/
We’ve also received our replacement Arri pelican case (for free). You can read more about it here: http://www.hhfilmboard.com/wordpress/2013/04/15/free-replacement-case-from-pelican/
We’ve switched to summer hours! Afternoon hours are cancelled and evening return hours are extended. The new schedule looks like this:
In case you didn’t know, we love Pelican cases and we love Sennheiser mics. Well, we love-hate the Sennheisers. Our lav mics are at least 6 years old but they just won’t gorram stop working. I wanna buy new ones but can’t justify spending the money until these break (that is is not an invitation to try to break them–you’d have to pay for them :-p). We just got two cases so we can separate them into their own case. This way, if you just need one mic, you can borrow just one mic and the other one will be available for others to use. You can book them here.
