With Inspire and CoMotion in less than 3 weeks, there was plenty to discuss at last night’s meeting. The schedules have been set for Inspire and CoMotion. You can check the list of speakers and portfolio reviewers at their websites: http://comotion.eventbrite.com/ and http://www.scad.edu/experience/events/inspire2011/. Prof. Austin Shaw has posters for the events, so if you have classes in other buildings or would like to post the posters around campus, let him know!
The deadline for the portfolio reviews and student showcase is Sunday, May 8th at 11:59PM. Instructions for submission are in the folders in the inspire2011-showcase folder in the shared student projects drop box. Although the same project cannot be submitted into multiple categories, boards and animation for a single project can be submitted in two different categories.
This quarter we are planning on having an Outreach and Education event targeted to underclassmen students who are unaware about what Motion Media Design is. We will show projects and have pizza. Anthony Palcic II is organizing the event, so email him if you want to get involved, at email@example.com.

“The first video would be something like explaining how the concept of Jibiri.com works for the customers. The artist could have creative liberty but the message would sort of be something like the video found on the groupon-clone of south africa: http://www.twangoo.co.za/how-it-works/
The second video would be explaining to businesses the benefit of joining our website. We want to stress how this is a partnership between Jiribi and the local businesses. How we are here to leverage the power of the internet and social network to help businesses reach a larger audience. How new satisfied customers leads to word of mouth, referrals, and become loyal recurring customers. Sort of how explain by the groupon-clone of mexico: http://www.tribuganga.com/negocios/ (unfortunately its in spanish)”
Please let us know if you are interested. You will need to contact, former club member and current employee at The Mill, Tanya asap for details.

2011 Judging* Schedule:
Dana Corrigan is working on a pilot for an animated TV series and will be pitching it to Nancy Spears, from Warner Brothers, on March 10. Here is her description of help she is looking for:
“The pilot won’t be finished by then, but I will be showing her a trailer of the pilot (using only completed shots, so the trailer should look complete) and the animation bible. I am looking for motion media help with the trailer, as well as a title sequence later for the pilot. We are in crunch time with the film right now, and will finish as many shots as possible. Here is the most current version of the film, which contains all of the shots in various states of completion – http://fatesagathesis.blogspot.com/2011/01/fate-saga-version-22.html.
Here is a current version of the trailer – http://fatesagathesis.blogspot.com/2011/01/fate-saga-pilot-trailer-version-8.html This trailer is definitely far from perfect, but is the closest mock-up of what I’m looking for that I can produce. If anyone who’s working on it has a better idea for the graphical arrangement, I am definitely willing to compromise. The text right now is just a stand in (and a hideous one at that. lol) I am definitely looking for help with communicating the text better – whether or not it’s over a black screen or over the film. The music is part of the film’s original soundtrack, composed by Ryan McCullough. I have his permission to use it for the trailer and can provide the whole version of the song if needed.
Although the chances of Fate Saga getting picked up are slim (as is any series idea that’s being pitched), if it does get picked up then this could become a job opportunity. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!”
Just a reminder the first MOMELove Meeting of the quarter is Tuesday, January 18th at 8pm in Montgomery 311. The date was changed because of MLK day, but the rest of the meetings will be on every other Monday.
So we’ve been wanting to make MOMELove t-shirts, stickers. temporary tattoos, etc but we didn’t have the time or the money. WELL now that we are a Professional Student Organization we have the budget and since it’s Winter Break we all have to the time to play around with some designs. No cutting corners either: We want cool designs regardless of it it literally says “MOMELove” and we’re gonna get quality shirts, maybe American Apparel? So no specifications but try and limit t-shirt designs to only a few colors so we can still afford pizza
YOU HAVE YOUR ORDERS NOW MAKE A TSHIRT OR A MAGNET OR A STICKER OR A TEMPORARY TATTOO AND POST AN IMAGE TO THIS EVENT!!
That way people can start voting on which ones they like via “liking” and then we can pick which ones to get printed out of the most “liked” at the first meeting next quarter!
Anyone who attended Geekend also gets $50 off at Sticker Mule but it EXPIRES DECEMBER 10th so if you’re working on a sticker get moving and maybe we can get those printed over the break!
This past Monday we had a short sweet meeting to have a little break in between all the madness of finals. Matt DeMarko, a senior film student, presented a little bit about his senior project “Greg Prime” that will be a free, online web series launching in the fall. They are looking for help from Motion Media students, so this is a perfect opportunity to get some extra work done early over the long break. http://gregprime.com/
THIS FRIDAY: The Senior 2 Class will be presenting their projects this Friday, November 12th, at 6:30 pm at the CSF building. Come support them and see all the hard work they have put in this quarter! Facebook event: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=163603943669881
Since we have such a long winter break, use the time as an opportunity to get your creative juices flowing without worrying about projects and due dates. We need to start some branding so in the next few weeks there will be a facebook page designated for creating MOME shirts, stickers, etc. We are also going to start a page about CoMotion to see what everyone would like to see, like speakers, panels, etc.
Enjoy your break and see you well rested and ready for a new quarter in January!
Good News Everyone!
FIRST: the Savannah Film Festival is going on from this Sunday Oct. 31 (ie HALLOWEEN) until next Sunday Nov. 7th. There are amazing films screening at almost all times, panels with some of our very own film professors like Professor Michael Jackson Chaney’s coffee talk every morning 8am (with free donuts) at the Marshall House, and lots of celebs in the area so go to the Starbucks on Broughton even if parking is more of a bitch. Check out the schedule of films and panels etc. on the website, there is bound to be something that you are interested in: http://filmfest.scad.edu/
Many of the films are FREE for students or 5 bucks with an ID.
ALSO: Geekend is coming up this same week. Staring Thursday Nov. 4th until Saturday Nov. 6th. at the Coastal Georgia Center ie the big red brick building to the left of Turner House. Badge pick up is on Thurs. Again there are panels, speakers, etc going on around the clock-you even get deals and discounts at restaurants and bars around Savannah with your pass!!! Hopefully you took advantage of the free passes while they were available if not I would try to put together $40 for the discounted pass..I am not sure how much longer it is available tho so do it soon!! Just go to the eventbrite site and enter GROUPDISCOUNT in the offer code and type in MOMELove as your company/organization so they know we are the reason you are getting the discount!! It’s a great opportunity that you don’t want to miss! Here are the speakers:
and the schedule http://geekend2010.com/schedule/
The Leo Burnett Ad Agency (http://www.leoburnett.com/) is coming to SCAD to meet with MOME, GRDS, and ADVE students next Thursday and Friday Nov. 4th and 5th. The interviews/meetings are up to the department, faculty, and career service department which is out of our hands but they also want an opportunity to speak to a group of students, ie MOMELove (non-MOME majors welcome too!!).
Originally our very own Jeff ZImmerman (MOME graduate and CoMotion 2010 student producer) was going to bring us pizza and present to us on Friday Nov. 5th at 1:30pm at Monty. Being a hired success story Jeff wanted to express to our major and all majors alike what it’s like going from a Senior here at SCAD out into the Job Market. Unfortunately Jeff may not be able to make it because a project he is in charge of has been postponed till that same friday…
BUT the Creative Technology Director and Motion Graphics Director would still like to present to us in his place!!! They want to break down Ad Agencies in terms of different positions and job opportunities that you may not have considered before but most importantly they want to know what WE WANT TO HEAR ABOUT!! and there will still be pizza! So what do you want to know from one of the world’s most influential ad agencies? Do you have questions about the departments? The culture of the company? How client relationships work? Have you ever wondered what an account manager does? Well let us know.
You can ask right here, on facebook, or email us at email@example.com.
Jeff will get the questions to our speakers.
This way you’ll know you’re going to hear what you want to know!
Another MOME student Tanya has been in discussion with her summer internship employers DK Chicago and they are looking to do a skype-session with MOME as well. If it all works out that will happen immediately after Jeff’s presentation. We have yet to have this confirmed but if not Nov. 5th. it will be the following Friday, Nov. 12th.
In other words: BUSYBUSYBUSY.
So even though this weekend is Halloween try to bust out some homework or get it done early in the week so you can go to some of these awesome events! Better enjoy it now cause we’re almost out of here people! AGAIN! Good luck, Happy Halloween, and I hope to see you around!!!
This past Monday was our third meeting of the quarter and was great as always. Austin Shaw shared some of his experiences working in the industry before coming to teach at SCAD this year. The dates for Inspire and CoMotion are up in the air right now, but both will still be going on. There will be more details closer to the date, but if you are interested start thinking of ideas for an Inspire/CoMotion t-shirt. If you have any other great MOME Love t-shirt ideas let us know.
The Senior II Class is having a showcase of their project the 9th week of the quarter and would like some help with branding. The theme is “Point A” is about the process of a project, working from start to end, and how reaching the end of a project will only lead to the beginning of another. They are looking for something clean, simple, and beautiful, specifically looking like this video: http://vimeo.com/15231100.
If you want to help out with anything email firstname.lastname@example.org!
Since the last meeting was pushed back a week, this upcoming meeting will now be Monday, November 8th at 8pm in Montgomery 311. See you there!
You remember at our last meeting that Kate came and spoke about the Senior Film Soiree? Well incase you missed it she sent me the handout.
The handout provides a list of all the productions that were promoted at the Soiree, the Seniors’ names, their contact information, and what positions they’re looking to fill.
If you would like some printed copies, they are available at the Oglethorpe House Residence Life & Housing Office.
Since the event was so successful it will be repeated at the beginning of Winter Quarter.
Sorry for the delay, there were many technical difficulties with the blog in the past week.
After the huge success of CoMotion last year, people were wondering whether it would happen again this year or if Inspire would come back, but its been decided that both events will be happening together in the same weekend. As of now, Inspire will be a series of lectures on Friday, April 15th at the Trustees Theater, and CoMotion will take place the following day, Saturday, April 16th. Inspire will be put together by the faculty, but CoMotion will be put on by the students. Be thinking about speakers that you would like to see. We are hoping to have a variety of areas represented: Commercial, Fine Art, Graphic Design, and Sound Design.
We want MOME Love to become more involved and well known throughout the school. We are thinking about crashing another club’s meeting so if there are any in particular that you would like to go to, share your idea at the next meeting. Bring any other suggestions for any outside activities you would like the club to participate in our presentations you would want to see.
In case you missed the last meeting and were hoping to hear our newest professor, Austin Shaw, talk about himself, you’re in luck! He was unable to attend our last meeting so he will be joining us this Monday.
This upcoming meeting we will also be viewing submissions for the 5 second Primitives contest. Although the deadline for Nick Campbell’s contest was this past Sunday, you can bring your own animation to the meeting this Monday whether or not you submitted it online. It’s a great opportunity to have fun and experiment, and there will also be prizes! More info: http://greyscalegorilla.com/blog/2010/09/five-second-project-primitives/
See you Monday, October 18th at 8pm in Montgomery 311!
Last night was the first of many fabulous meetings to come. There was not an empty seat in Monty 311. After the officers introduced themselves, a few students who had internships this summer shared some of their experiences and the value of real world experience whether it was at a local news station or a major production house.
A few other things we talked about:
Geekend 2010! This year the conference is November 4-6. The student ticket price is only $60, which is extremely worth it because it is 3 full days packed with speakers. For more info, go to their website: http://geekend2010.com/
One Day on Earth! This is a great world-wide project documenting life on 10/10/10 all over the world. If your video is chosen to be part of the film you can win tickets to a regional premiere and a DVD of the final project. http://www.onedayonearth.org/
5-second Animation Contest! Last year we voted on the theme Squirrel and came back the next weekend with 5 second videos that had any connection to squirrels. Many of the past submissions are on the Vimeo Page: http://vimeo.com/groups/mome
Break into the Spotlight Bumper Contest! Contest for the Savannah Film Festival. All the information is located here http://www.sfdm.scad.edu/intranet/student/?p=1466
Make sure to come to the next meeting, Monday, October 4th at 8:00pm in Montgomery 311! Austin Shaw, our department’s newest professor, will be introducing himself and sharing some of his work. Don’t forget to bring any ideas for our 5 second animation contests because we will be picking a theme for our next contest with fabulous prizes, maybe even a Geekend pass!
Somehow we only have a few short weeks until the end of Spring Quarter! Where has the time gone? First of all I want to thank everyone that has been involved with MOMELove this year because we did some great things and it wouldn’t have happened without the support of our group! This year we did a lot: we gained valuable insight into some of our faculty members, we got to see great speakers like Lee Hunt and Doug Grimmett through the Inspire lecture series, hopefully many of us had beneficial encounters at the Career Fair (thanks to Professor Boortz for giving us a guide to be prepared properly), we got to interact more with other student clubs and departments like 16×9 and some graduate projects, and most of all we started a CoMotion!
We did a lot of big things this year and this club has the potential to do even more! Our last meeting of the school year is tomorrow, Tuesday, at 8pm room 311! We are going to have pizza and reflect on what we accomplished this year as well as goals for next year. Personally I see big things in MOMELove’s future and I hope you come out not only for the food but also for the officer elections. A lot of the students that made these big things happen this year would be great leaders in this club and if you think you can make things happen then run for office!
Publicity & Branding
We hope you consider it. If you choose to run, we will ask you to talk briefly about your intended participation as well as your goals and why you feel you would be a qualified applicant for your chosen position. If you have any additional questions about this process don’t hesitate to ask. I hope to see you at the meeting and thanks for a great year!
