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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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!!!
